Hotels Probably Have Their Own Domain Zone

International Hotel & Restaurant Association (IH&RA) recently supported the initiative to create a special .hotel domain for the hospitality segment.
Last month the IH&RA Council announced their support for the idea of creating  .hotel domain. The idea was proposed by dotHOTEL company. If Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers would endorse .hotel that will open new marketing prospectives for hoteliers.
According to IH&RA there are billions of the domain names that consist the word “hotel”. The “.com” zone is overloaded and many hotels need to register quite complex names like hotelname-city-hotel.com etc.

On the other hand such brands as Marriott International (according to The Wall Street Journal) are against the .hotel zone. They say it may become an area for a large number of internet frauds, especially cybersquatting.
