At the summit of developers Chrome Dev Google representatives briefly announced the imminent opening of the registration of names for the top-level domain .dev. Application acception will begin in January 2019.

From January 16 to February 19, 2019, brand and trademark owners will have the opportunity to register a domain name with their trademark. From February 19 to 28 there will be an early access stage with a higher price. And from February 28, access will be open to anyone.

As noted, the .dev domain, like the previously opened .app, will receive support for the HTTPS protocol by default. A more detailed description of the domain zone is available on the official website.

In May 2018, Google announced the public registration in the domain zone .app - in the first top-level domain, which allows only secure connections. And in October 2018, early registration began in the .page zone. Unlike .app and .dev, which are designed for developers, the .page zone is focused on personal pages, business and thematic sites. The domain also supports only secure channels.
