A frequent commenter on TheDomains Tom Gilles is the founder of New Dot Media, LLC, his company published a press release relating to an educational website TheNotComRevolution.Guide.
An educational website, http://TheNotcomRevolution.Guide, has been launched by New Dot Media, LLC to help internet users better understand and navigate the new “Not Com” Internet. The website provides insight and tips for consumers, businesses, parents, and professionals regarding the epic expansion of web domains.
The homepage of the website features a new video that Google, in collaboration with Donuts Inc., have produced in preparation for what is expected to be a large scale marketing campaign to raise public awareness about new “Not Com” web domain extensions. (link to video in the release not found).
The Devo song, “Freedom of Choice”, sets the scene for the video that features hundreds of “Not Com” domain extensions that are now available for use in place of dot-com in website addresses.
“Not Com domain extensions offer greater selection and semantic value for those wanting to create an online presence,” according to Tom “Not Com Tom” Gilles, Founder of New Dot Media, LLC. “At over 120 million used up already, the .com extension is exhausted. Most every reasonable .com address is long gone.”
“New suffixes can also make for better use of the space to the right of the ‘dot’ in a web address. ‘com’ means nothing, adds nothing. Now you can use that space to tell visitors something about yourself,” Gilles continues.
The internet addressing system is in the midst of a monumental and transformative shift as over 1000 “Not Coms” are coming online. Where today internet users are accustomed to seeing websites that end with .com, .net, .org, or .gov, soon there will be websites with addresses like TexasHoldem.Poker, Search.Google, ‘Shop.Amazon’, or, ‘Picasso.ART’.
