These are the new domain name extensions (New gTLDs) that are launching in 2016 and 2017.
The list includes highly anticipated domain extensions such as .Shop that was purchased for $41.5 million, .Blog bought for about $19 million by WordPress and .Web that was recently won in an auction by Verisign for $135 million.
2 closely competing names, .shop and .shopping, offered by 2 different registries (GMO and Donuts) launch within a few days in September.
The 2 lists below include the registry name, sunrise dates, landrush (were applicable) and early access dates (were applicable) and the general availability date for each domain name string. The first list is targeted to trademark holders while the second one to all other interested parties.
(.Motorcycles launched but it is a restricted extension and only verified entities can register a domain name.)

* The .Web launch dates have not been published by Verisign yet and are a prediction. Verisign could decide to launch .web much later.
You have to mortgage your house to buy into a decent keyword, and when it comes for renewal you will have to sell your car.
Wow what a great concept GTLDs
Sorry, I am not buying
What’s the latest on .web?
Verisign is now being investigated by the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice about .web. Maybe .web will come out in 2018…
Thanks for the update. It will be interesting to see what the state of the new Gs are by that time.
I am waiting for the Chinese drop… Both for .com and new Gs. And waiting for the .xyz drop after the 1 cent domains expire.
