Over the last few years a large number of new domain extensions have become available on the market. Many of these new extensions are keywords that are commonly found in legacy top-level domain registrations such as .com or .de. A prime example of this trend is the word “cloud”, which according to corporate Registrar CSC has risen in popularity over the last few years, thanks to the growing importance of cloud computing and cloud-based services.
As the cloud becomes increasingly embedded into our lives, it is clear to see how the .cloud domain extension provides clear advantages to companies operating in the cloud computing space. Launched just four months ago, .cloud has taken the domain market by storm with over 55000 domains registered from over 130 countries.
