Apple Applies For ‘.apple’ Top-Level Domain

Right now if you head to “” you”ll be able to check out the iPhone 4S on Apple’s website. Starting in Q2 of 2013 you may be able to puch “” into your browser to get to Apple’s website

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has published nearly 2,000 applications in a list pertaining to top-level domains. ICANN is planning on expanding the domain naming system and adding new suffixes.

Guess what, Apple was on the list…

Apple paid $185,000 just for the application fee to have a shot at getting the “.apple” domain suffix!

If approved, the new suffixes would rival “.com” and about 300 others now in use. Companies would be able to create separate websites and separate addresses for each of their products and brands, even as they keep their existing “.com” name. Businesses that joined the Internet late, and found desirable “.com” names taken, would have alternatives.

Apple isn’t the first to try and secure their brand through domains. Companies like Google, Microsoft, and Amazon have also applied for certain domain suffixes regarding their company names.

If this new domain suffix is approved we could see these going live as soon as next year.

What do you think?

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.

    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.

    Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do think that
    you should write more about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do not talk about such subjects.
    To the next! Kind regards!!

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however
    I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
    writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website
    covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be
    interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from
    you! Superb blog by the way!
