Support for new gTLDs

SR

Hi Team,
As you may or may not be aware, recently over 300 new top level domains (such as .email, .ceo, .today etc) have been released. I have noted however that I had no issue changing my email address on the Todoist site which is great.

However many sites do not currently support these new TLDs proactively, as a result of this problem (I have been facing it on many of the sites that I use on the web) I have put together a site http://supportthenew.domains

While it appears that Todoist currently supports the new gTLDs, I would like to ask the following questions to get a 100% confirmation, I will post your response to the below questions on the entry I have created for Todoist at http://supportthenew.domains/who-supports-the-new-gtlds/name/todoist-com/


1. How many of the ~300 released new gTLDs does Todoist actively support across all it's portals and sites? (see http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/delegated-strings)
2. If Todoist does not currently support all the gTLDs, does Todoist have any plans to proactively support new gTLDs prior to their release (rather than reactively after they have been released)?
3. Again, if Todoist does not currently support all the gTLDs, does Todoist have any plans to change the way by which they validate domain names for email validation and/or as a domain name when entering a website into the web interface (i.e. to be more dynamic in supporting future gTLDs)?

Many thanks
Stuart

Hello Stuart,

Thank you for contacting us. Our system supports not only all TLDs currently in existence, but will automatically support all other domains that will ever be created in the future.

That's because it does not check for validation when you enter an email address, as long as it contains an @ sign and one dot . after that so you could right now change your Todoist's email address to 123456@789789.4564897 and it will accept it and attempt to send emails to this address. It will of course fail in this case, but if that was a valid domain and email, it would work.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,
Thanks so much that is awesome news (and thank you for being one of the few sites that are fully supportive of the new gTLDs). I have updated the entry here http://supportthenew.domains/who-supports-the-new-gtlds/name/todoist-com/ to show that you fully support the new gTLDs.
Cheers,
Stuart
