    Okey so to name a few: .ads .news .wiki .fans .garden .gay .club .forum .actor .tips

    Some info from GoDaddy

    When will new TLDs be available?
    We expect the first groups of new TLDs to launch in fall 2013. Check back for more information on release dates, registration requirements, pre-registration and other important details.

    Why do new TLDs matter to me?
    New domain extensions let you create a relevant name that defines your website, brand, business, group or organization. Registering a new TLD that represents your market can increase customer trust and set you apart from competitors

    What's your view on this? Good or bad? Why?

    These new TLD domains are shocking, the majority of web users are just going to look at .actor like WTF. The only one I like out of those is .tips, will make for some nice domains forex.tips for instance, though I will be sticking to .com, .net and .co.uk

    This whole gTLD thing is rubbish. ICANN allowed it because they are greedy fat pigs and want to make more money. Most web users will be so damned confused they will just go to the .com domain. 80% of these new gTLDs will fold within 2-3 years because people won't buy them.

    it will take 1 year for people to just realize the new domains, and 1 more year to navigate. If a .info is hard to rank (for most) than a .garden or .house .realtor will just add more junk

    so if you were to nab .blackhatworld
    for example nobody else would have the .blackhatworld domain?
    Or are these new domains the same as regular top level domains just to assist in labeling certain brands companies etc?

    ICANN are greedy bastards. Bet they'll never add .thief .. Even .info were a flop, only reason anyone ever used them because they were almost free.

    Deal, just don't take mattcuttstranny.club!

    I'm interested in grabbing some 4 letter domains. But the question is, how can you ensure you get one? Is there going be some kind of auction process for the best ones or will we be able to pick up some good hand regs for an easy and profitable sale a few months later?

    There is more examples of this, ie: .fan & .fans

    It's possable to sign up to their 'Watch list' to make sure you're out in good time.
    But on the other hand. I'm sure that the big domain providers will sign up for all good names themself and sell it as 'Premium domains', no doubt.

    http://blackhatworld/ would look pretty cool IMO

    Are they gonna limit what TLD you can buy? Or if you have enough cash can you bid on any name?

    It will be interesting to see how Google treats these domains in terms of SEO. i.e. will they get more/less weight than .com / .net / .org ?
