gTLD stands for "generic Top-Level Domain". In the Internet world gTLDs are often referred as Domain Name Extensions (e.g. .COM, .ORG, .NET).

New gTLDs are the expansion of generic Top-Level Domains in the Domain Name System. New Domain Name Extensions contain specific keywords suited to your area of interest (e.g. .SALE, .STORE, .ENGINEER, .ACCOUNTANT, .EXPERT, .LAW, .HOCKEY, .GOLF, .PIZZA, .COFFEE, ...).

ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) have started releasing New gTLDs in Q2 of 2013. Many New Domain Name Extensions are already available, and over 1,300 new domains would become available in the next few years.
