According to a public opinion poll of 1,000 Internet users, commissioned in part by Fairwinds Partners, and conducted by InsightsNow! in April, “Internet users are willing to navigate to, use, and trust new gTLD web addresses and brand name websites will carry more weight with Internet users than generic sites.

In a CircleId Post Fairwinds outlined the results of the online poll:

  • 57% said they had no preference or would be willing to navigate to a new gTLD media website, while 43% said they would stick with a .COM media site
  • 52% said they had no preference or would be willing to shop on a new gTLD, compared to 48%who preferred .COM
  • 53% said they had no preference or would be willing to bank with a financial institution operating a new gTLD site, compared to 47%  who would stick with .COM
