New gTLD in Focus

The TLD in focus this week is .CLUB.

.club goes LIVE into General Availability on 7th May (tomorrow).

.club

.club is a new domain made for clubs of all kinds. Because “club” is a generic term with a lot of definitions, the possibilities of a .club domain are seemingly endless. It can be used to promote a sports team, community events and as a meeting place for online communities/groups, etc. It is perfect for dance clubs, night clubs, and VIP clubs. It can also be used by reviewers, tour guides, team members, team leaders or social media representatives.

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

 

    Pricing
 
.club   CAD $14.95

 

We’ve done market research and here’s a look at what other Registrars are charging for pre-registering a .club domain. This should help you to set your selling price more strategically.

 

  GoDaddy Enom United Domains Name.com
.club USD $14.99 USD $31.99 USD $29 USD $14.99

 

.club has been one of the most talked about New gTLDs in the industry and its now going LIVE into General Availability! It’s also slated to be the 1st TLD to reach 100k domain registrations based on a survey on TheDomains.com.
