10 gTLDs we’re glad they weren’t applied for at ICANN
A lot of domain investors and Internet nerds alike were anxiously expecting the ICANN revelation of almost 2,000 new gTLD applications.
While we are finding an endless interest in the gTLDs that were applied for, we are also grateful for those that were not!
Here is a list of the top 10 gTLD applications that never made it to the ICANN list:
- .Acai – Nobody cares about this tiny berry and its damn antioxidants!
- .Spam – The makers of luncheon meat are content – thank God! – with having spam.com
- .Viagra – Unlike Cialis, who did apply for .Cialis, the Viagra guys are more confident about their pill and the .com
- .NASA – NASA has no money and no space shuttle. Ouch!
- .Horny – There is plenty of that in every TLD, why add more to it?
- .Papadopoulos – This common Greek last name is ridiculously long, who would want to type it in?
- .AmericanIdol – It’s fun, let’s keep it this way, unlike the applicants of .Eurovision
- .ZZZ – An alternative to WWW for people with sleeping disorders
- .Divorce – Despite good intentions, half of the applications for the .Wedding gTLD will almost always end up in a divorce.
- .DomainKing – Because Rick’s blog dot com is good enough!
