New-Domains are the ultimate domains for online activities. The New-Domains are self-explanatory domains: New-Domains produce something new.
If you want that recipients of your websites write news on your page or that visitors write new software programs at your page, or you want your customers, sales representatives or employees to create or edit documents, if you have a collection or catalogue of books, video clips, documents, then register the New-Domain. For example, register tweet.new to create tweets or eventinvite.new to send invitations for events.
All domains on .new must resolve to action generation or online creation flows. Once resolved, the user should be able to 'create' something without any further navigation. Already launched examples from Google include docs.new and slides.new, which resolve to a new document creation page.
Any .new domain will need to be live within 100 days of registration or will be deemed non-compliant with the registration policy.
This registration policy will be actively enforced. Any non-compliant registrations (including domains not live within 100 days, landing pages, work in progress pages, and non-action generation or online creation flows) will be flagged. Registrants will be notified and failure to remediate will lead to the domain being locked and then deleted.
The forwarding of a New-Domain to a password protected website like the cooperation website slack.com or the developer website github.com is permitted- at the conditions below. Navigation to a .new domain must bring a user directly into the action generation or online creation flow. Navigation or redirection to a homepage or landing page that requires the user to take additional steps or clicks to initiate action or creation will not be deemed to comply with this policy. An exception is provided for services that require a user to be logged in, navigation to a .new domain may bring a logged-out user to a sign up or sign in page. After completing sign in and any other required authentication, the user must be brought directly into the action generation or online creation flow. A user that is already signed in must be brought immediately into the action flow.
The ICANN process of introducing new Top Level Domains continues. The registry of New-Domains has set the October 15, 2019 as the beginning of the Sunrise Period. Interested parties for the sunrise period must register at the Trademark Clearinghouse .
General Availability starts on July 21, 2020.
The standard New-Domain costs in the general availability 449 US-Dollars per domain and year. Unlike many other domains, the New-Domain is cheaper during the sunrise period. The New-Domain costs 399 EUR at the sunrise period. In addition to the standard New-Domains, Premium .New-Domains are also offered. The price for the Premium New-Domains is not only due in the first year, but annually.
What is the goal of the New-Domain? The New-Domain provides a secure space for the creation, management and cataloging of self-generated texts, documents and products. Google Registry has made sure that all New-Domains are added to the "HSTS preload list"
The entire .New TLD has been added to the HSTS preload list, which means registrants will have to provision and set up SSL certificates in order for their content to be loaded in modern browsers
The New-Domain is a secure namespace, meaning that HTTPS is required for all .New
websites. You can buy your New-Domain now, but in order for it to work
properly in browsers you must first configure HTTPS serving. You can acquire webspace with pre-configured encryption at us without any additional costs or SSL Certificates.
Whether you're building a website for school, launching a side project, or expanding your
business's online presence, there are basic steps to take to protect your website's content and
your users' information (especially if you are collecting personal or financial information).
1. Install a SSL certificate. As a website creator, you should ensure that traffic to your
website is HTTPS-encrypted. By encrypting traffic to a website, you ensure that any
communications to or from that website cannot be seen by an eavesdropper. If you were
to mail a letter that contains a private message or your personal information, would you
rather send it on a postcard or in an envelope? The envelope is the physical equivalent of
HTTPS because it prevents parties who have access to the envelope on its way to the
recipient from reading or changing its contents.
Installing SSL allows you to encrypt data on your website. Websites that have an SSL
certificate use HTTPS, as opposed to HTTP (which means that a connection is not
encrypted). Major browsers may also show a lock sign next to a secure connection and
warn users if the website is not secure.
How to get SSL:
You can buy webspace at us and get at one click installed SSL for free or you fetch yourself free certificates at Let's Encrypt
2. Make sure your entire website is encrypted.
Many website owners donft realize that a single New that isnft encrypted could
potentially be used to gain access to the rest of the website. To avoid this, you need
encryption on your entire website, not just for News that are collecting credit card
numbers or log-in info. Even unencrypted landing News that redirect to an HTTPS New
can pose risks. A single New that is unencrypted can become a backdoor for bad
actors to snoop on the rest of the site.
How to ensure encryption: Use a top-level domain that is HSTS-preloaded. The HSTS preload list is a list of
websites which modern browsers will only load over an encrypted connection.
The fastest way to get on this list is to use a top-level domain that's already on
the HSTS preload list, like .app, .dev, or .New. Any website on those extensions
gets the security benefits of HSTS-preloading from day one, so all you need to do
is install your SSL certificate.
Alternatively, you can add your website to the HSTS preload list yourself.
Websites can be individually added to the HSTS preload list by the website owner
at hstspreload.org . Keep in mind this can be a slow process because the list is
manually built into the browser. That means updates to the list are made as new
browser releases come out, which can take months to occur for all browsers.
