Plan And Develop A New Top-Level Domain For Your Brand Or Community
ICANN has not yet announced the opening of applications for the next round of new TLDs, which is expected no sooner than 2022. We can keep you informed of forthcoming announcements. In addition to applying for your own top-level domain, there are strategic alternatives that may be suitable for your brand or business. Work with ExcelStrategy to create your business plan, go-to market strategy, and domain strategy.
When ICANN opens its next round for accepting new TLD applications, work with ExcelStrategy to develop your ICANN application and prepare for launch. Our experience includes developing and launching new top-level domains, re-asserting legacy TLDs, launching and managing domain registrar/retail businesses.
