New gTLDs – September 2014 Week Four

New gTLDs – Week of 9/22 -9/26/14

The following are the New gTLD extensions being launched for the week.  One brings back icky memories from elementary school…soy.  We were being fed soy burgers before it was the trendy thing to latch onto these days.  blaaaah   These days I would have to have a .BEER to wash a .SOY burger down.  So hang ten, eat a burger with real meat, and go .SURF (ah…maybe surf, then eat the burger)  We don’t want you to drown.
