The word “cloud” is a general term that has become synonymous with the Internet or a piece of the Internet. The new TLD .cloud could apply and mean different things to different markets.We believe .cloud will have a wide appeal. It could help identify companies and organizations that provide services in the “cloud”. Likewise, .cloud could be ideal for consumers who wish to “name their cloud” or their personal piece of the Internet.
A .cloud domain could also help identify networking or interest groups who are connected by the “cloud”, i.e. entrepreneurs.cloud – a networking group for entrepreneurs.
The main purpose of the .cloud gTLD is to identify companies and organizations providing cloud-based services.
The gTLD .cloud will be an unrestricted registry covering commercial and personal demands; much like the range covered from .com to .biz, .info and .net. Although a bit closer to the current .com the new .cloud will allow for a better namespace for businesses, organizations and individuals who want their own name on the Internet.We believe .cloud will appeal to a wide audience, including all sizes of businesses and consumers.
