The application fee for the sunrise period is 1199 US-Dollar per application. The domain fee for standard domains is 59 US-Dollar.
General Availability starts on March 2nd, 2021.
The domain fee in general availability for standard domains is 59 US-Dollar/year.
The relationship between a better ranking in search engines and new top-level domains has already been proven in a study of Searchmetrics for .berlin domains. Websites with .berlin domains often rank better with regional searches in Google than sites with .de domains and .com domains.
"In 42% of searches, .berlin domains rank better locally."
Another study by Total Websites in Houston shows that the results of the Searchmetrics study are in principle applicable to all new TLDs, including e.g. new Hair-Domains. Total Websites notes that Google sees the domain extensions of new TLDs as an important criterion for the evaluation of a domain and, therefore, concludes that:
"It's clear that the new top-level domains improve the ranking in search engines."
