A Dot Before New? – Helping You Tame Your Access Technology

A Dot Before New?

A Dot Before New?

.New is a domain extension exclusively for performing new actions online: any act that leads to creation can have a quick and memorable .new shortcut associated with it.

Essentially, what this means is that you can start something new simply by typing in a web address into your browser! Ever heard of Google Docs? Thought so. Anyway, if you go to docs.new in your web browser, you will be directly in a new google document. It is quick and easy. More examples below. Keep in mind that the examples given generally require you to have an account with the service in question.
