"Music" is a very common word that can refer to many different things, such as music, music albums, music services, etc.

The .Music top-level domain was launched by the International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in 2015. It is a top-level domain designed specifically for the music industry, allowing music-related individuals, organizations, and businesses to register their own website addresses. This domain name is designed to provide the music industry with more opportunities for online presence and resource sharing.

In an effort to attract major tenants in the music industry, .Music has pushed back its general availability release date by more than three months.

GA is now scheduled for October 8, compared to the previous date of June 25, the registry said.

The gTLD is currently in a "community organizing phase," during which musicians and industry entities can claim matching .music domain names after completing a rigorous identity verification process.

Music offers up to one million domain names for free through participating partner organizations.

The registry announced this week that it has partnered with a company called Shufti Pro to handle registrant authentication.
