Big news dropped this week that could shake up the internet for better or worse. The agency that administers internet addresses i.e .com, .org, ect. is going to branch out and allow people to make different URL endings.
This is the first time in some 25 years that something like this has happened and it might be the beginning of sub-categorizing the internet.
This got me thinking what are the Top 10 best .whatevers that could help us breakdown the internet and make it easy to find things.
10.) .shop – I’m sure retailers would fight it but I want to know when someone is selling something and this would go a long way into determining that. If your primary internet presence is the sale of goods you’d be thrown in this category.
9.) .pay or .bill – Online bill paying is growing and growing it’d be nice if it had it’s own area.
8.) .money – Closely tied with number 9 .money would be for things like credit cards, banking, potentially retirement accounts and maybe even stock trading sites.
7.) .eat – Pretty self explanatory but restaurants and grocery’s would go under here.
6.) .med – Anything health care.This would really help weed out some of the no legit stuff that floats around out there.
5.) .help – This is a hard one to explain but it’d be nice to know where I can go for specific resources and tutorials
4.) .soc or .social – For the wealth of networking sites that are primarily focused on online interactions
3.) .news – Would love to have news sites have to apply for this tag… we could really weed out sensation journalism online this way and get back to just facts.
2.) .awesome – Basically just for all things Steve Ressler that can be found online
1.) You Guessed It .xxx – Making this tag will cut the internet in half and make it a lot easier to navigate and click on things with out worry.
What are some other URL endings you think should be implemented?
