SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- An educational website, http://TheNotcomRevolution.Guide, has been launched by New Dot Media, LLC to help internet users better understand and navigate the new "Not Com" Internet. The website provides insight and tips for consumers, businesses, parents, and professionals regarding the epic expansion of web domains.
"Not Com domain extensions offer greater selection and semantic value for those wanting to create an online presence," according to Tom "Not Com Tom" Gilles, Founder of New Dot Media, LLC. "At over 120 million used up already, the .com extension is exhausted. Most every reasonable .com address is long gone."
"New suffixes can also make for better use of the space to the right of the 'dot' in a web address. 'com' means nothing, adds nothing. Now you can use that space to tell visitors something about yourself," Gilles continues.
The internet addressing system is in the midst of a monumental and transformative shift as over 1000 "Not Coms" are coming online. Where today internet users are accustomed to seeing websites that end with .com, .net, .org, or .gov, soon there will be websites with addresses like TexasHoldem.Poker, Search.Google, 'Shop.Amazon', or, 'Picasso.ART'.
Many famous brands, including .Google, .Netflix, .Gucci, and .BMW applied for their own dot-endings. Already there are almost 4,000,000 new addresses registered under the first "Not Coms" like .guru, .club, and .nyc.
Hundreds of new web extensions will be available in a multitude of categories offering marketers, professionals and businesses new options for web addresses that will help consumers identify their website's content, location or purpose. There will be geographic url endings to demonstrate locations such as .nyc, .london, or .quebec. Professionals can use suffixes such as .doctor .cpa, .law and more. Websites specializing in consumer niches can use .book, .baby, .cars, .fashion and others. See a list of Not Com extensions.
The new domain address suffixes are approved by ICANN, The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. ICANN is the non-profit organization that governs the Domain Name System all top-level domain address extensions used for website names, including .com.
