The .com and .com.au have always ruled the Australian market but that is about to change, but that is all about to change. Because the market is about to be flooded with new domain extensions, with everything from .expert to .technology, there’s something to suit every brand and personality out there.
These new domains have opened up a whole new way for individuals and businesses to market themselves, from identifying the field of work they are in with an extension like .rentals or .property to highlighting their expertise with .techology or .solutions extensions. You could even highlight your place as an expert in your chosen field by registering extensions like .guru, or .expert, both of which are already proving very popular.
Popular around the world there are several city domain extensions now on the market and .berlin leads the way with 140,000 registrations to date, making it the second most popular new gTLD overall. These are great for individuals and businesses to identify where they’re located and market themselves as local.

Secure your trademarks
As the domain market is about to be flooded, there is no way to keep up with each release to ensure you secure the trademarks you’re entitled to. In preparation for this, a Trademark Clearinghouse, has been set up to help businesses register their trademarks and get priority access to each extension during their various sunrise periods over the coming years. It will also alert you if someone else registers a domain with your trademark. This is the best defence against domain squatters, as well as giving you a head start on developing your online brand further with the latest domain extensions before everyone else.
