#newgTLD .CLOUD begins @Advertising on CNN, joining GoDaddy:

.cloud is such an obscure and inappropriate domain name for almost any use imagineable. The only use I can see it being suitable for is cloud storage providers and cloud hosting companies. Not a big market then! Yes, probably most of the new gTLD endings are inappropriate – none moreso than .xyz – however ‘xyz’ is intentionally meaningless, whereas in technological terms, ‘cloud’ is a well-known noun with a very restricted meaning and use. I fail to see how it could ever have potential to become mainstream or how this string could be seen as an attractive investment either by the registry and its backers or by domain purchasers/investors.
