Apple snaps up variety of .camera, .photography domains

updated 01:04 pm EST, Thu February 6, 2014

Domain names mostly connected to Aperture, FaceTime, other apps

Apple has acquired another batch domains from ICANN, reports note. The latter this week opened up access to more generic top-level domains; Apple secured 16 .camera and .photography addresses, specifically one of each for names including "aperture," "apple," "facetime," "imovie," "iphoto," "isight," "photobooth," and "retina." Apple is presumably holding the domains to prevent squatters from exploiting them.

Other top-level domains that became available this week include .equipment, .estate, .gallery, .graphics, and .lighting. Apple has taken steps to prevent people from using its trademarks with these gTLDs, but hasn't gone to the extent of securing the domains themselves.

Last week, Apple picked up a collection of .guru domains. Apple is expected to continue expanding its Internet presence as more gTLDs become available.
