New gTLD in Focus

 

The TLD in focus this week is .EMAIL.

 

.email went LIVE into General Availability last week (26th March) and has met with wide acceptance already. .email is now the 6th Largest New gTLD with over 16,700 domains registered under it.

Email has revolutionized the way we communicate with other people. A domain under the .email will allow individuals to create a personal email address that others can easily identify. Businesses can use a .email domain to create a specialized address that is strictly for email. .email aims to connect all email users and hosts in a more defined network while allowing advertisers and marketers to develop email marketing campaigns with more visibility and a diverse media strategy. It is open to any individual, company, or organization, and can be used for any purpose.

Here’s the pricing for .email on the system:

 

    Pricing
.email   $19.95

 

Also, to give you an idea of the potential profit margins for a .email domain name, here’s a look at its selling price across the major Registrars:

 

  GoDaddy Enom United Domains 1&1 Name.com OpenSRS
.email $24.99 $20.99 $29 $24.99 $22.99 $20
(Reseller Price)

 

 

A mention for .BERLIN

.berlin went LIVE into General Availability on 18th March, 2014. It is the first City TLD to be launched in the New gTLD program and has met with wide acceptance from people and businesses based out of Berlin. It is currently the 2nd Largest New gTLD with over 43,000 domains registered.

While it might be too early to predict ‘success’, the .berlin launch is a good indicator that city/geo TLDs will definitely be popular! So, make sure you keep track of the geographic TLDs for your target region and are prepared to sell & promote them when they launch. We’ll definitely keep you informed about these TLD launches and will be among the first service providers to offer these New gTLDs!
