New Study Says "Consumers Feel Uncomfortable with the ‘New Internet’ and New gTLDs": #domains

The quote in the headline above comes directly from a press release we received today from the NCC Group about a "New Internet Study " they conducted (in collaboration with IDG Research Sevices ) that involved a survey of 10,000 consumers (half form the U.S. and half from the UK ). NCC Group is a publicly traded global information assurance firm (listed on the London Stock Exchange) who says they serve 15,000 clients through 1,000 specialists located in 20 offices around the world. The sub-heading on their press release stated "87% don’t feel very comfortable surfing on new domains with phishing on new domains already underway – and set to get worse." We sent a message to a leading new gTLD registry operator requesting their take on this study but have not yet received a reply. The full text of the NCC Group press release is below:
