Apple picks up four .technology domains, applestore.berlin

updated 01:17 pm EST, Thu February 20, 2014

Issues blocks on still more domains

Apple has acquired the rights to several more domain names, made available through ICANN's continuing rollout of new generic top-level domains. The company now owns four .technology addresses: apple.technology, ipad.technology, iphone.technology, and mac.technology. It has also secured blocks against registering some domains, including apple.construction and macbook.technology.

The company's first geographically-based domain is applestore.berlin. The URL refers to Apple's Kurf├╝rstendamm outlet, which opened just last year. The acquisition suggests that the company may pickup more retail-related domains as they become available.
