40 day countdown til the dot brand domain: infographic

In 40 days brands will be able to apply for their own dot brand web extension.

 The 92 day window for applications to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) opens on January 12, 2012, so next year we might be flooded with the likes of ‘news.pepsi’ addresses instead of ‘pepsi.com/news’.

To make the process easier domain registry company Afilias has launched a handy guide detailing the benefits of a personalised domain and tips on the application process.

ICANN plans to allocate a maximum of 500 dot brand extensions each year and expects to receive thousands of applications, so it could be up to a decade before the application window opens again. 

Afilias has also produced this useful infographic to summarise the process.
