The focus on this week’s ABC Grandstand was a little more Geek than Sports with ICANN releasing new Top Level Domains TLDs for Reveal Day.[audio:http://sportsgeekhq.com/files/2012/06/GrandstandRevealDay.mp3|titles=ABC Grandstand – Sean & Francis discuss the new TLDs in Sports]
What is a TLD?
What are they? Top Level Domains like .com, .au, .uk they allow new kinds of web addresses
New Top Level Domains were revealed on Wednesday – Full list of applications available here.
How does that fit for Sports?
Some Sports that applied (at a price tag of $185K)
Those missing – NRL, NHL & other missing include social media platforms like .facebook and .twitter
Other sports related TLDs include
.TENNIS (Tennis Australia)
In preparing for ABC Grandstand I was lucky enough to chat with a “Domain Geek” Josh Rowe (AKA @joshrowe)
