Domain names for the hotel business

.hotel at ICANN Nairobi

We participated with two people at the 37th meeting of the Internet administration agency ICANN in Nairobi to discuss with directors and staff the introduction of the .hotel top-level domain (TLD). ICANN is likely to open the application window for .hotel and other extensions like .sport, .paris or .ibm beginning of next year.

According to latest information from ICANN the new TLDs including dothotel may become available later in 2011. That means that hotels and hotel chains will be able to register domain names like www.choice.hotel or www.design.hotel at this time.
