What is the .amazon domain name?

.amazon is a new gTLD (generic top-level domain) applied for by Amazon. It could become the web address of products sold by Amazon, as well as those sold outside the company, such as those provided via its Associate's program.

It has been said by Amazon that TLDs (top-level domains) such as .amazon will allow the company to better protect its brand name from being used inappropriately on the Internet.

For now, it's unclear how widely available the .amazon domain names will become because companies have been known to apply for a TLD and not actually use it.

Amazon .amazon – What's in a name?

According to Amazon, the choice of .amazon represents a desire not to have its Internet address open to everyone.

The company says that "TLDs offer increased choice and opportunity" but that ". amazon is a unique name where the company holds significant rights, so consumers will know immediately whose website they are visiting".

"Earlier this year, Amazon brought together business partners to launch the .buy generic top-level domain (gTLD) – an initiative designed to increase online choice for customers and help companies compete online by establishing websites with readily identifiable names."

The new gTLDs are meant to offer more choice and better online visibility to companies, but it will be interesting to see if this is the case and whether .amazon will really serve that purpose.

Amazon has applied for many other top-level domains including: .buy, .free, .game, .shop, and .spot among others.
