Dot Brand gTLD Application

StarHub confirmed that it is applying for its own .starhub Brand TLD in February, 2012. The company chose ARI Registry Services] to provide its back-end registry solutions, while Melbourne IT Digital Brand Services provides consultancy services for its new gTLD application with ICANN. According to StarHub Assistant VP of Brand and Marketing Communications, Oliver Chong, they believe that the .starhub TLD will enhance the online brand recall for the company. Adrian Kinderis, CEO of ARI Registry was hopeful that the announcement of StarHubs application for new gTLD will encourage other Asian companies to apply for their own new dot-brand gTLDs.[2] It was only the fourth brand to announce its plans to apply for its own TLD, following earlier announcements by Hitachi, Deloitte and Cannon.
