Google TLD .App Introduced

Google also notes its security advantages:

“A key benefit of the .app domain is that security is built in—for you and your users. The big difference is that HTTPS is required to connect to all .app websites, helping protect against ad malware and tracking injection by ISPs, in addition to safeguarding against spying on open WiFi networks. Because .app will be the first TLD with enforced security made available for general registration, it’s helping move the web to an HTTPS-everywhere future in a big way.”

The Early Access Program starts today and runs through May 7th. Thereafter, the new .app TLD will become available to the general public.
