What are the new additions in domain name extensions?
Today, the internet is providing more people access to information and helping to invigorate the shrinking employment community to make jobs available in nontraditional employment system. For instance, one of the new domain extensions is .guru which is associated with individuals who have specialized knowledge in certain areas and niche.
The question is that who would you naturally prefer to talk to when you want to learn about the internet? A cyber guru will be most appropriate and not some college students who studied computer science. The reason is simple, the term guru, derived from high-level spiritual master connotes the idea of someone with vast knowledge in the area of skill you seek. So, you want to learn from a master in the field you try to build more skills. Therefore, anyone with the high level of expertise in his or her trade can decide to register a domain and use guru instead of the general commercial domain extension “.com” to describe his service.
