Domain name industry holds breath as renewal cycle comes around

Extract: "The domain renewal rate is a crucial metric for the health and growth of an internet registry, and so the industry is watching closely to see whether registrations of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) are holding steady or whether a larger-than-normal number of domains were registered out of the novelty value of having a new-style domain name".

  • To participate in a Sunrise Period, Brands should submit their trademark data into the Trademark Clearinghouse and check its calendar;
  • Fan Clubs should register a domain name ending in ".club" with GoDaddy;
  • Promoting new domain names to the right target requires time: contact Jovenet Consulting.
