New '.clothing' domain name from Jan 29

Jan '14
The current Internet domain names like .com, .org, .net and .info, are soon to be joined by a new list of domain names this year, starting with seven new domain names on January 29, 2014, including ‘.clothing’.
 
This massive expansion of the Domain Name System (DNS) represents one of the greatest changes to the Internet since its inception and the first since 2004, according to the International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which oversees the web-address system.
 
The new domain name ‘.clothing’ is expected to have significant implications for apparel retailers and consumer brands, as it would give them more choice in shaping their Internet identity.
 
At present, about 78 percent of the over 143 million registered domain names are in .com category, and the new domain name extensions will make Internet addresses more diverse and would have choices beyond the current non-descriptive offerings.
 
The new top-level domain is expected to bring enormous branding opportunities for both bricks-and-mortar and online retailers, according to experts.
