Earlier today we listed the new gTLD strings which had 4 or more applications.
Obviously those are conflicting applications but there is another type of conflicting applications; those that don’t match but cover the same subject, or field or profession.
Take the case of the legal profession.
There are applications for .Law, .Lawyer., .Legal, .Attorney and .Esq.
That means there is a real possibility that not only will some of those new extensions will have to compete against existing extensions but they may have to compete against each other for a share of a segmented market.
This is not the only example:
There are applications for .health, .med and .Healthcare, .hospital
.gripe and .sucks
.Corp, .Company, .LLC, .LTD, .Inc, .Limited, .LLP will also have to compete with .Co that has branded it self to stand for company or corporation among other things.
.DDS, .Dental, .Dentist
.Discount, .Deals. Save
.Earth, .Eco., Green, .World
.movie, .film, .video
.Auto, .Autos, .Car, .Cars
