New TLDs

TLD stands for Top Level Domain. This is the extension used in a Domain Name. Like in www.inaic.net (the extension .net is the TLD here)

There are 5 kinds of TLDs available on the net:

(country code TLDs) delegated by IANA.
Two letter labels are reserved as country code identifiers under ISO 3166. Two character codes will only be delegated to a competent government authority associated with that code. It is not possible to register any ccTLDs.
(generic TLDs) delegated by ICANN.
Generic TLDs will only be delegated by ICANN to a selected group of companies against high costs. Currently is extreme difficult to register gTLDs. The rules to register domain names under gTLDs are different for each registry.
(corporate TLDs) delegated by TLD.NAME.
Corporate TLDs will exclusively be delegated to corporations that would like to secure their name on the Internet through many authorized TLD Registrars like TLD.NAME. Only corporations can register a cTLDs.
(public TLDs) delegated by TLD.NAME.
Registering a public TLD is available to everyone and is based on First Come, First Served (FCFS) system through many authorized TLD Registrars like TLD.NAME. Most Public TLDs have on-line registries available that allows anyone to register domain names.
(dormant TLDs)
dTLDs are not available and do not have any domain names. dTLDs are reserved for future use.

Public-Root resolves all of the above TLDs on a global scale. Though TLD.NAME you can on- line register public TLDs (pTLDs) and corporate TLDs (cTLDs). When the name of the TLD is
similar to a company name, trade name or brand name of a company then this is a Corporate TLD. When the name of the TLD is a common name like .world or .sports, then this is a Public TLD. When you register a new TLD through TLD.NAME, you default register a dTLD (dormant TLD). When you have a domain name registry available to enable everyone to on-line register domain names under your TLD, then your TLD becomes a pTLD or a cTLD.

Currently all Internet users world wide, are able to resolve all pTLDs (including all other TLDs).
However still many ISPs do not forward these TLDs to their subscribers yet. Check here to check if you are able to resolve the whole Internet.
