The California gold rush started in 1848 when gold was discovered in Coloma, California. This resulted in a stream of over 300,000 gold-seekers rushing to California to find their fortune. In order to stake their claim, a newly arrived gold-seeker laid out their claim with some sort of boundary, and would then file a claim with the assay office in the nearest town.
The California gold rush was a short lived period in history, but it made many people wealthy. Those who were smart enough, and quick enough were able to get their hands on valuable land and benefit from the opportunities that resulted.
Over 160 years later there is another gold rush happening – an online gold rush. Starting in February 2014, hundreds of new domain name extensions have been released to the public worldwide, sold on a first-come basis. Hundreds of amazing new domains which future web businesses will be built upon.
No longer are you limited to only a small number of domain name extensions such as .com, .net, .org or .co.uk for example. Now you have hundreds, and eventually thousands of new domain name extensions such as .club, .guru, .webcam, etc that you can choose from, which gives you not only increased choice, but a far better chance for you to register the domain name you’ve always wanted. Throughout 2015, every week new domain extensions will be released.
Since many of these new domain names are more niche, you will be able to target the specific sector you are interested in promoting. Depending on the type of website you have, there’s a good chance you will be able to get a domain name extension that relates to your target audience. For example, if you run a website that sells cameras, then you can now register a .camera domain name extension.
With one of the new domain name extensions you can stand out from the competition with a relevant, memorable domain – tell the world what you’re about. You can enhance your online presence. Let people know exactly what it is you do e.g. YourName.photography, etc. You don’t have to limit yourself to just one domain. Expand your brand. Take advantage of the new extensions to promote other services/products that you offer.
