Authenticated Reality Releases 'The New Internet' With Unrestricted Domain Extensions

Company also announces Android availability of The New Internet, the first-ever secure gateway to the Internet

AUSTIN, TX – Authenticated Reality (www.TheNewInternet.com), creator of The New Internet®, a secure gateway to the internet where all users are authenticated and identified, today announced the launch of its domain registry as well as open beta availability of The New Internet on Android. The ability to register domains on the platform enables companies and individuals to experience full expression of speech with its unrestricted domain extensions, allowing more options for anyone to own the domain name of their choice. Additionally, as all users are authenticated on The New Internet, the verified nature of the domain registry also helps to protect businesses and individuals from phishing scams, hacking and more.   

“With the launch of our domain registry on The New Internet, we’re not only providing fresh real estate for people on the web, but we’re also challenging both the ‘old internet’ and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)’s standards for freedom of expression,” said Chris Ciabarra, co-founder and CTO of Authenticated Reality. “After the U.S. government gave up control of ICANN, it’s more important than ever that we don’t suppress the communities that want their own domain extensions. For example, Dotgay LLC http://dotgay.com has been fighting for rights to ‘.gay’ as a domain extension for almost a decade. Now, with new domains open on The New Internet, any individual, group or business can express themselves any way they want by owning a domain extension that was previously unavailable.”

Launched in February, The New Internet is a new secure gateway to the internet that creates a more authentic experience for users surfing the web in an environment where, for the first time, all users are verified and all URLs are open for comments/ratings to foster real comments, conversations and online interactions from real people. This is accomplished by unprecedented levels of authentication (real-time validation via driver’s license) and patented, browser-based technology, eradicating fake profiles and ensuring the creation of a secure community of people who are authenticated and real.

Businesses and individuals/communities looking to purchase a domain on The New Internet, as well as the internet domain market overall, will benefit from the security of the platform due to the authenticated nature of all users. Here’s how:

●      Businesses - Since all users on The New Internet are authenticated, businesses know who are really visiting their sites, granting access to more accurate analytics about their online customers without having to worry about bots skewing results of online ads and more.  

●      Individuals and Communities - In addition to enhanced site analytics, security and pricing, individuals and communities have the added benefit of unique and creative expression when choosing their domain and extension -- for example, “first name.last name” style options offer a more personal way to market yourself and group.

●      The Domain Market - Current domain owners on the “old internet” have the chance to purchase their domain name on The New Internet as well. Authenticated Reality is also addressing the issue of domain squatting by allowing the purchase of domains on The New Internet that are currently parked by squatters on the old internet. 

“When we heard that The New Internet was opening domain names on the platform, we saw this as a great opportunity to not only protect our brand online, but to also increase security so that the customers of our bank will no longer have to worry about phishing attempts coming from emails that are not from the bank,” said Jim Schneider, Chairman of Horizon Bank. “To be most proactive on this front, Horizon Bank has purchased the domain horizonbanktexas.com on The New Internet."  

For more information about the platform’s domain registry process, including pricing, requirements for purchase and FAQs, please visit http://TheNewInternet.com. You can also see a quick video of the new domain feature here: https://vimeo.com/207035550

In addition to launching the domain feature on The New Internet, Authenticated Reality has also opened its closed beta to Android users, available today. Now, users can surf The New Internet on any iOS, Android, PC or Mac device. To be a part of The New Internet beta, users can visit www.TheNewInternet.com to request access or download it for free via The Apple App Store (download here) for iOS as well as the Google Play store (download here) for Android devices.

[Sponsored Content] The State of Encryption and How to Improve It
Encryption and access controls are considered to be the ultimate safeguards to ensure the security and confidentiality of data, which is why they're mandated in so many compliance and regulatory standards. While the cybersecurity market boasts a wide variety of encryption technologies, many data breaches reveal that sensitive and personal data has often been left unencrypted and, therefore, vulnerable.
