NEW YORK – ResellerClub’s recently concluded New gTLD Summit saw participation from a host of key players from the domains and web hosting industry such as Donuts, Radix, Affilias, .SHIKSHA, .DESI and .CLUB. The event was the first-of-its-kind to be held in India, targeted exclusively at the New gTLD Industry Segment that is still at a nascent stage of development.

The summit was the perfect platform for registry representatives, registrars, resellers and other interested stakeholders to discuss key industry issues such as creating awareness about new gTLDs, looking at the current growth drivers of new gTLDs, innovative methods to boost awareness about new gTLDs and several other topics of significant relevance such as the SEO impact of new gTLDs as well as a panel discussion.

With several new gTLDs entering general availability every week, ResellerClub has undertaken a number of initiatives to create awareness about this promising new industry segment. Shridhar Luthria, General Manager & Business Head of ResellerClub, said, “We were thrilled with the response we received to the first edition of the New gTLD Summit. The event led to a lot of exciting discussions around creating awareness about new gTLDs and several great marketing ideas to help stakeholders to push new gTLDs effectively.”

Several attendees raised questions on whether they will last and whether the market had enough space for so many new entrants. After the discussions between all the stakeholders, the consensus seemed to be that although there may eventually be some consolidation, ICANN will safeguard the interests of the registrant. There are also several mixed views about whether they will be an alternative to .COM or just a secondary option. The discussions at the new gTLD summit tackled these and several other intriguing questions. “A number of stakeholders raised questions around whether they should jump onto the New gTLD bandwagon. The fact that these new TLDs are backed up by the likes of not just Internet biggies like Google and Amazon, but also a number of international brands like BMW, Reliance, etc. is only an indicator of the fact that new gTLDs are here to stay,” said Anand Vora, Director of Sales & Marketing at Donuts Inc.
