18.a. Mission/Purpose of the Proposed gTLD
Charleston Road Registry is an American company, wholly owned by Google, which was established to provide registry operator services to the Internet public. Google is an American multinational public corporation and global technology leader focused on improving the ways its hundreds of millions of users connect with information. Since its formation, Google has been developing technology that can improve upon existing ways of doing business on the Internet. Google provides a variety of services and tools for Internet users and advertisers of all sizes, from simple search features and local ads to enterprise-scale business applications and global advertising solutions. These tools make it easier for people to make use of the world's information and enable entrepreneurs and publishers around the world to grow their businesses.
In line with Google's general mission, Charleston Road Registry's mission is to help make information universally accessible and useful by extending the utility of the DNS while enhancing the performance, security, and stability of the Internet for users worldwide. Charleston Road Registry aspires to create unique web spaces where users can learn about Google products, services and information in a targeted manner and in ways never before seen on the Internet. Its business objective is to manage Google's gTLD portfolio and Google's registry operator business. As discussed further in the responses to questions 23 and 31, Charleston Road Registry intends to outsource all critical registry functions to Google Registry Services.
The sole purpose of the proposed gTLD, .gbiz, is to provide a dedicated Internet space where Google can continue to innovate on its offerings for businesses. The mission of the proposed gTLD is to provide a dedicated domain space in which to enact second-level domains that relate to the management of enterprise-oriented Google services, including email. Second-level domains in the proposed gTLD, .gbiz, will automatically be delegated to Googleʹs DNS servers, which will in turn provide authoritative DNS responses pointing the userʹs web browsers to Google services. The mission of the proposed gTLD is to simplify the Google enterprise user experience. Enterprise users will have the option to manage a branded .gbiz domain (e.g., mycompany.gbiz), which will be used to host short and simple URLs that point to the userʹs account. This mission will enhance enterprise choice by providing new availability in the second-level domain space, creating new layers of organization on the Internet, improving the Google enterprise user experience, and signaling the kind of content available in the domain.
The proposed gTLD will also provide Charleston Road Registry with the means to meet its business objectives.×
