.immo is a proposed Niche TLD submitted to ICANN's new gTLD expansion program by Starting Dot, a start-up domain registry company based in France. The term immo is an abbreviation for the word "immobilier" which means real estate and it popularly used in France, Germany and Italy. Starting Dot plans to utilize the .immo TLD to provide an online space for the real estate industry including agents, property managers, home builders, professional real estate website publishers, professional insurance and financial services providers.

Starting Dot will face a string contention for .immo TLD against Top Level Domains Holding (TLDH), the parent comoany of Minds + Machines and the Austrian domain registry operator Nic.at. Richard Wein, General Manager of Nic.at confirmed the company's 11 TLD applications including the .immo string in April 2012. [2] [3]
