New gTLDs: Upsides and Downsides today

The New gTLDs are here whether you like it or not

Search New Generic Top Level Domains

As we mentioned in a previous post, over one thousand new gTLDs are in the process of being launched during this year and 2015. The yearly fees for registration of these new extensions start at two times the cost of registering a Dot Com domain extension or higher.

In addition if you want to pre-register a new gTLD you can do it now, but in most cases if there’s more than one bidder for the name of your choice you will be taken to a private auction between all the bidders, it’s not a first come first served pre-reg. So you may end up paying more than what you expected for the registration and sometimes it’s not clear how much will you have to pay for renewals of this “premium-wannabe” name.

Top 10 Online Threats To Your Website

The strategies hackers use to break into your site can be complicated but the results are usually pretty simple – lost revenue. Here are the 10 most common threats identified by the Open Web Application Security Project:

Website Security
1. Injection.

It’s not uncommon for web applications to have injection flaws, especially SQL injection flaws. A hacker who finds one will send malicious data as part of a command or query. The attacker’s message tricks the app into changing data or executing a command it was not designed to obey.

2. Cross-site Scripting.

Cross-site Scripting flaws occur whenever an application sends user-supplied data to a web browser without validating it first. Hackers use these flaws to hijack users away from the site or deface it, thereby costing the site owner in lost business.

3. Insecure Direct Object References.

Applications that lack checks to verify a user is authorized to view particular content can be manipulated to access private data.

4. Broken Authentication.

When account credentials and session tokens aren’t properly protected, hackers can assume users’ identities online.

5. Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF).

A CSRF attack tricks unknowing site visitors into submitting forged HTTP requests via image tags, XSS, or other techniques. If the user is logged in, the attack succeeds.

6. Security Misconfiguration.

Security misconfiguration flaws give hackers unauthorized access to system data via default accounts, unused pages, unpatched flaws, unprotected files and directories.

7. Insecure Cryptographic Storage.

Many web applications don’t do enough to protect sensitive data such as credit card numbers, Social Security numbers and login credentials . Thieves may use this data for identity theft, credit card fraud or other crimes.

8. Failure to Restrict URL Access.

Often an app will protect sensitive interactions by not showing links or URLs to unauthorized users. Attackers use this weakness to access those URLs directly in order to carry out unauthorized actions.

9. Insufficient Transport Layer Protection.

Applications often fail to authenticate, encrypt and protect the confidentiality of network traffic. Some use weak algorithms, expired or invalid certificates or use them incorrectly. This allows hackers to “eavesdrop” on online exchanges. An SSL Certificate typically neutralizes this threat.

10. Invalidated Redirects & Forwards.

Web applications often redirect or forward legitimate users to other pages and websites, using insecure data to determine the destination. Attackers use this weakness to redirect victims to phishing or malware sites, or use forwards to open private pages.

My two cents on new domain extensions

First all let us give you a big picture on new GTLDs. There are currently over 1500 new domain extensions available for registration or pre-registration with yearly fees starting at two or three time the cost of registering a Dot Com domain extension…

New Domain Extensions - Cheap Group Domains

The total number of registered domain names passed 250 million in the last quarter of 2012, and more than 6 million domain names were registered in the fourth quarter of 2012, bringing the total to 252 million worldwide. The basic dot com domains, make up the majority of registered domain names. By the end of December users had registered 106.2 million .com domains, as well as 14.9 million .net addresses. The .com and .net top-level domains (TLDs) also accounted for the majority of newly registered domain names. In total, 8 million .com and .net TLDs were registered during the fourth quarter of 2012. Additionally about 21 percent of .com and .net websites, are just one-page sites and 15 percent are registered but don’t point to a working site at all. Country code top-level domains grew 21.6 percent year-over-year to a total of 110.2 million domain names, with China driving quite a bit of this growth. (Source: Verisign).

What about new domain extensions? Well, according to Domain Incite, as of March 5, there were just over 200,000 domain names registered in the new gTLD extensions. ( this is around 0.08% of the total registered domains). Consider that an important amount of them where defensive registrations from Companies that run their business using the traditional dot com extension and some others that are registering for brand protection.

So, what about the idea that the new gTLDs will change the Internet forever? In the new internet era (with more than 1000 extensions), will shorter domains using new gTLD extensions become good brandable domains as well? And more importantly, will new domain extensions (assuming they run websites with relevant and fresh content) show up on top in search engines? These are some questions that still don´t have a concrete answer. And not having an answer at all, new gTLD’s should be considered a high risk investment.

We will start taking registrations for new domain extensions at Cheap Group Domains very soon (it´s almost all set), however we suggest you follow some of the following tips:

  • If you happen to find a single character domain name (or up to two or three letters) it might be a good asset in the future.
  • Same applies for single word names (non brandable) that are related to your business.
  •  If your domain name currently includes a word that equals the new domain extension, you can consider registering a shorter version of the domain name you are currently using. (example: if you own yourclub.com you might consider registering your.club)
  • Meanwhile there are still plenty of available dot com domains still waiting for your registration at a very convenient yearly price.

Good Luck!!

Your Naked Domain Has Less Internet Traffic

Consolidate Your Website Traffic In A Single Domain – SEO Rule 1

the-best-search-engine-optimization-tools

According to Google® a “naked domain” is a Domain Name without its “www” prefix (for instance “domainshotdeals.com” would be the naked version of “www.domainshotdeals.com” (which would be the “non-naked” version of the Website).

There’s a possibility that Search Engines measure traffic going to the naked version of your Domain Name (“domainshotdeals.com”) and traffic going to the non-naked version of your Domain Name (“www.domainshotdeals.com”) as traffic belonging to two different Websites.

Even more, for some of its applications used in combination with your Domain Name, Google® only allows the use of the non-naked version of your Website (“www.domainshotdeals.com”).

More importantly, Google® itself redirects its own name to the non-naked version (i.e. If you type in google.com in your browser it will redirect to “www.google.com”).

It means that if you are not redirecting your naked domain to your non-naked domain, your real traffic may be underestimated by Search Engines and Website Traffic Evaluation tools.

The simplest way to redirect the naked version of your Domain to its non-naked version is by using the .htaccess file.

naked domains

Although .htaccess is only a file, it can change settings on the servers and allow you to do many different things, the most popular being able to have your own custom 404 error pages. .htaccess isn’t difficult to use and is really just made up of a few simple instructions in a text file.

You may be wondering what .htaccess can do, or you may have read about some of its uses but don’t realise how many things you can actually do with it.

There is a huge range of things .htaccess can do including: domain redirection, password protecting folders, redirecting users automatically, custom error pages, changing your file extensions, banning users with certian IP addresses, only allowing users with certain IP addresses, stopping directory listings and using a different file as the index file.

Creating a .htaccess file may cause you a few problems. Writing the file is easy, you just need enter the appropriate code into a text editor (like notepad). You may run into problems with saving the file. Because .htaccess is a strange file name (the file actually has no name but a 8 letter file extension) it may not be accepted on certain systems (e.g. Windows 3.1). With most operating systems, though, all you need to do is to save the file by entering the name as:

“.htaccess”

(including the quotes). If this doesn’t work, you will need to name it something else (e.g. htaccess.txt) and then upload it to the server. Once you have uploaded the file you can then rename it using an FTP program.

Below is the .htacces file that redirects permanently the naked “domainshotdeals.com” to the non-naked “www.domainshotdeals.com”:Use of htaccess file for traffic consolidation
