What is an nTLD?
TLD (also known as a domain extension) stands for "Top-Level-Domain" and the "n" stands for "New", so nTLD simply means New Top-Level-Domain. A TLD is basically the string of characters that follow your domain's name. For example in the domain "myawesomedomain.com", the TLD or domain extension is ".COM".
These new TLDs provide a lot of opportunity to register new and relevant domain names with a unique ability to tailor your entire domain name to your specific interest or business. For instance, if you run a bike shop in Portland, Oregon called "Portland Rides", try registering portlandrides.bike. If you have a coffee shop, try javabean.coffee. There are millions of great possible combinations to express your individual needs!
