Google will use generic top-level domains, which go live next year
Everyone knows what a TLD is, but may not realize it as it’s not a commonly used term. TLD or Top-Level Domain are the last letters in domain names, such as the most common being .com, .net, .biz, and .org. There currently are 22 TLD’s. ICANN who creates the TLD’s has been accepting applications for a new type of TLD called Generic TLD, or gTLD, and Google along with other big name companies plan on using the gTLD’s which will go live as early as next year.
