com.google how did they do that

Thomas Schulz
As of the time I am sending this, you can point your browser to
http://com.google and get a web page. How did they get com.google
to resolve?

I'm sure it was not cheap.

Brace yourself!  There are many here now, and more coming.

Peanuts compared to their buying .app for $25m. [1] Here's a list of the

The list of delegated strings [3] increases almost daily, yes. (And I
can't stop laughing.)

Some of them sound like more April Fools jokes.

Wow.  I see the trend now -- .hp, .ibm, .cisco -- everyone will now have
www.company.  (Please, let's not.)

..then again, I'd claim .evil if I had a few billions.

RE: com.google how did they do that

Lightner, Jeffrey
Not all the new TLDs are company specific.   Some are more generic but useful to certain industries.

There are 2 or 3 TLDs that I assume will appear sooner or later and I really wish I had the capital to make them as I know as soon as they are available many companies will use them so they'd become nice revenue streams.

I think I saw a tweet with a figure around $185,000 US Dollars.

I wonder if that is on the low side.

I believe that's the fee to apply, per domain.  Proof of ability to
provision and run a registry business to ICANN specifications over the
long term is sold separately.
