3) New gTLD in Focus
The TLD in focus this week is .TIPS.
.tips went into General Availability last week on 26th February and is already the 4th most popular new gTLD with over 8,000 domains. A .tips domain is meant for sharing knowledge on virtually any topic. It provides users with a recognizable and relevant TLD, making online advice more accessible. There are no restrictions on .tips domain extension. Anyone can register.
We have already seen great traction for .tips on SiberName over the last week and believe that there is much more opportunity that you can leverage for this TLD. Here’s the pricing for .tips on the system:
.TIPS Pricing $19.95
