ICANN has delegated new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) including .ferrari, .fiat and .nba.

After completing the new gTLD programme review, a new address becomes part of the internet when it is delegated and is introduced to the internets authoritative database, known as the root zone.

On August 2, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Fiat and the National Basketball Association were among several companies to have their ‘dot brand’ strings delegated.

TBO has covered a number of articles about ‘dot brands’, which can be viewed below:
