FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 29, 2014) - .CLUB Domains announced that it has sold its 100,000th new domain name today, setting a record as the first new generic top-level domain (gTLD) to sell 100,000 domains and continuing its streak as the best-selling new domain extension. Entrepreneurs, brand owners, popular entertainers, corporations, domain investors and more from around the world have registered their own .CLUB websites, including entertainer 50 Cent's 50InDa.Club, singer Demi Lovato's Lovato.club, fitness expert Tiffany Rothe's ICFC.club and many established Rotary, golf, country, yacht, auto, and sports clubs. According to data compiled by Namestat.org, there are already over 150 .CLUB websites in the Alexa top 1 million websites by traffic, more than any other new top level domain name.
In just over 100 days since its launch, .CLUB websites have continued to grow in popularity, with some very interesting names and website concepts. TheDudes.Club has launched as the "go-to place for all the things men find interesting;" LuckyDuck.club will soon launch as a gourmet coffee service; RoswellRotary.club, the Rowell Georgia Rotary chapter now forwards its old .com address to the new .club address; and many clubs, bloggers and businesses are registering from around the world every day.
"We've seen an increase in not only entirely new businesses springing up specifically around the .CLUB domain, such as shaving.club, but also from companies that are creating micro sites within their larger sites as a private, members-only address that offers additional benefits and privileges for 'club' insiders," said Colin Campbell, president and CEO of .CLUB Domains. "We believe we have sold more than any other new domain because the word CLUB is so meaningful, and has recognition all over the world. It is easy to remember and allows for a great, catchy domain name.
Many premium .CLUB domains have also been sold to corporations and investors, including eat.club selling for $20,000; baby.club and Barbie.club each selling for $5,000; Ritz.club selling for $7,500; Mary Kay's purchasing beauty.club and skincare.club; and many more. "But there are still many, many great .CLUB names still available for under $15 a year," added Campbell.
.CLUB domain names are available for purchase from major Domain Name sellers everywhere, such as GoDaddy, Name.com, Hexonet, 101 Domain, 1and1, United Domains, and more.
