Club or Bar... We've Got Your Perfect Domain Name for Great Online Marketing

.CLUB and .BAR Domains Team Up at Nightclub & Bar Show

to Bring Meaningful New Web Addresses to the Industry

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - March 31, 2015) - There's a new, better way for nightclubs and bars to market and promote themselves online, and the .CLUB and .BAR domain names are teaming up for the first time to offer the nightclub and bar industry the opportunity to get the perfect web address for their club or bar. .CLUB Domains, which owns and operates the #1 selling new generic top-level domain ".club" and Punto 2012, the domain company that operates ".BAR" will be in booth # 232 at the Nightclub and Bar Show in Las Vegas March 31-April 1, 2015.

Since the beginning of the Internet, clubs and bars have been relegated to getting a .com, .net or similar web address that gives no context or meaning to what consumers will find at the site, nor does it necessarily help in SEO rankings. In addition, with many of the good .com domains long taken, it leaves new businesses with little or no opportunity to have a great web address to market online. But the Internet is changing…

The .club and .bar extensions have now become available, and more than 200,000 .CLUB and .BAR names have already been registered. .CLUB is the #1 selling new domain and also leads in premium name sales including Vegas.club for $100,000 and others, totaling more than $800,000 to date. 

".CLUB and .BAR really epitomize the success of the gTLD industry, because they're two words that give genuine context to a web address and also are used throughout the world in just about every language," said Colin Campbell, president and CEO of .CLUB Domains. "It's what the expansion of the Internet naming system was all about: giving businesses a chance to better brand and market themselves on and offline with a cool, amazing domain name that has meaning to everyone." 

".BAR and .CLUB domains are short, easy to remember and recognized all over the world. This is a great opportunity for bars and clubs to have a very relevant element that builds or reinforces positioning, marketing and categorization in the online world, and even offline," shared Aaron Grego, CEO of .BAR Domains. "Every day, we are finding new websites using .BAR domains, in exciting and innovative ways."

Anyone can register for a .CLUB or .BAR domain name at hundreds of registrars around the globe. A list of .CLUB registrars can be found at nic.club/register and a list of .BAR registrars can be found at register.bar/registrars
