Below is another look at a few developed sites on the new gTLDs. Screenshots are linked to the sites if you’d like to check them out for yourself.
This is another example of a company that’s using the new gTLDs to span the dot and shorten their domain — in this case going from OneHipHop.net to One.hiphop.
They’re an online radio station that I’m listening to as I type this. They describe themselves as follows, “One Love Hip Hop Radio is a multimedia platform for innovative music, art and lifestyle. We focus on the rap scene where the initiatives that lead to the successes, sounds and trends of tomorrow are born. We stream 80/90/2000 and trending Hip Hop and R&B. You can get in touch and meet old and new songs, Hip Hop styles and Artists.”
The site’s Alexa rank is near 800,000, so they’re starting to pull in some visitors.
This domain is an additional site for the owners behind WMD.hr and WebHosting-WMD.hr, among many others. The .hr country code is for Croatia.
Compared to their URLs above, the WMD.hosting URL offers text in multiple languages, so this .hosting domain may be their avenue to expanding to a global audience for this 11 year old company.
As you would expect, they offer hosting services, but also web design, domain registration, SEO work, mobile apps, and more.
They’ve started to get a little traction, as shown by their Alexa rank near 2.2 million.
The site isn’t much to look at (screenshot below), but c’mon…..self-destructing messages……just like Mission Impossible!
“Disposable.link is a new way of sharing secret messages over Internet. Messages shared with the help of Disposable.link will be destroyed just after being read. So you do not need to worry about the security. Data will only be available with the person you are sharing the message and only for one time. Most important thing is that Disposable.link is free and does not need any registration.”
They offer options ranging from 5 minutes to 1 year on how quickly the message is deleted.
The site is starting to get a little traction, with its Alexa rank near 14 million.
However, they’re clearly (hopefully!) just getting started, as they quote the following person on their testimonial, “Some dude on the Internet” 🙂
