.shop General FAQ
The new proposed .shop top-level domain is intended for e-commerce business and main street retailers. The .shop will probably be one of the more sought after gTLD because of the overwhelming amount of online retailers and e-commerce websites. Businesses looking to boost their online presence and increase website traffic should definitely consider the new .shop. It will send a clear message to internet users and allow them to search for online retailers much more efficiently. The shortage of good domains is growing, and the introduction of .shop will give businesses the opportunity to register more suitable, desirable and descriptive domain names.
There are currently two company's hoping to operate the .shop extension, Commercial Connect, LLC cpr144449003101 and the GMO Registry, Inc. Both companies have similar goals and visions for the .shop.
