The domain .gop is a generic top level domain (gTLD) which was submitted to ICANN by the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) and added to the Domain Name System (DNS). Its intended audience is for all web addresses associated with the Republican Party and conservative causes.
Political figures are often victims of cybersquatting. The .gop gTLD serves as a verifiable way for Republican candidates to distinguish themselves online.
Until ICANN’s application process delegates .gop for use, it is unclear which accredited registrars will sell .gop addresses.
