The .MOTORCYCLES domain names are available to organizations in the motorsports industry, providing better naming options and more defined web addresses. They are part of ICANN’s expansion of the domain name system.
According to Dominion Registries :
New top-level domains such as .motorcycles are held to higher standards compared to the legacy top-level domains such as .com and .net
For example, all new gTLDs are required to have certain mechanisms in place to protect trademark holders, something not required in legacy domains.
The registry goes beyond the standard verification requirements set by ICANN. They validate each applicant before releasing a domain name to ensure the applicant is from an eligible category of the motorsports industry. This validation assures consumers that any website ending in .MOTORCYCLES will contain relevant content from a genuine motorsports company.
The registry adds :
In addition, the registry constantly monitors all .motorcycles websites in order to proactively mitigate any fraudulent activity.
