A comprehensive guide to the domain industry for IP, IT and brand professionals
In our 7th edition this informative reference document for the domains market, we include insightful interviews with industry insiders, and profiles of all 1,600 registries —every place in the world a business can register a domain.
This year in the Gazetteer we have included some new features. We have grouped the open new gTLDs by target industry sector, as a quick reference guide for anyone running a naming programme. We have reproduced a world map created by WIPO showing which ccTLDs operate the UDRP or similar DRS programme. We also cover the domain blocking mechanisms that are now available.
