.inc TLD launches to deter cybersquatters
A new top-level domain (TLD) has been launched in an attempt to deter cybersquatting, which is the practice of buying up domains and then overselling them to companies who want them. The .inc domain can be used for anything business related.
An added benefit of the .inc TLD is that several companies will be offering benefits to those who register a .inc site. According to Intercap Registry, the operator of the .inc domain, registrants will get over $2,500 in benefits from companies such as WeWork, Square, Intuit, Google Ads, and Delta Air Lines.
