So this is a little breaking news in the domain name ecosystem, fresh in my inbox from Jothan Frakes, .TRUST TLD moves from NCC Group to UNR (Uniregistry). There are so many top-level domains (TLDs) that it’s hard to keep track but surprised this one hasn’t had more play this year. In the domain name world, there are a few of the new TLDs that have been lightly launched or are still green fields. The .TRUST TLD had been launched by NCC Group at a high price point and strict qualifications for registration, but has sat somewhat dormant and unused. It will be interesting to see if UNR can expand the potential of this TLD.
