Alternatives when your domain was taken

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
From the author:
"So a fallback hierarchy isn’t simply arranged by quality. It’s also susceptible to registry marketing, gossip, widespread cliches – whatever we’re exposed to. In my example above, I mentioned .CO and .CLUB rather than .PW or .OOO, which predisposes any reader (however slightly) to think of those extensions ahead of others. Indeed, advertising has played a major role in spreading both .CO and .CLUB".

Reminders:
  • Trademarks should submit their datas into the Trademark Clearinghouse to participate in future Sunrise Periods. The official TMCH calendar is available here;
  • For a better recognition, sports clubs should register a ".club" domain name at their accredited Registrar.
