Commercial Connect keen to collaborate on dot-shop

Louisville-based Commercial Connect has said it's keen to collaborate with any other parties thinking about applying for the dot-shop gTLD, as they're confident they have the best application for the domain.

"If you're thinking of applying, we'd say work with us," says CEO Jeffrey Smith. He believes it's such a valuable domain that there could be four or five other parties out there who may make applications.

One organization has already announced its intention to file - Japan's GMO Registry launched its dot-shop "support site" in October 2009.

GMO Registry is also applying for brand TLDs on behalf of clients Canon and Hitachi, and the geographic TLD dot-tokyo.
