Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
The full list of submissions for new internet address endings has been published by the organisation co-ordinating the expansion.
The BBC was among the applicants, applying for .bbc as an alternative to .co.uk and .com.
Samsung - which had objected to the process - has taken part, applying for both .samsung and its equivalent in the Korean alphabet.
However, Coca-Cola and the snack manufacturer Kellogg, which also signed a petition in protest, have abstained.
By contrast Google has applied for dozens of the generic top-level domain (gTLD) name strings.

What! no .GOD?
Panthro: I'm guessing more authority weight will be given to these premium TLDs in the SERPs.
I don't think a Search Engine should be allowed to own generic TLDs. PERIOD.

These are going to be lost just like .co and other similar .com-wannabes. So the only winners are going to be big fat brands and trending subjects. <==period
