The .NEWS domain names start to be adopted

.NEWS beats competitors

The .NEWS new gTLD has competitors and the biggest one is not .PRESS, it is .BLOG but .NEWS has many advantages:
  1. it is multilingual;
  2. it is cheap: $10 at the moment at some Registrars;
  3. we do not know how much a ".blog" will cost since it has not launched yet;
  4. ".press" is more for the press specifically rather than news in general.
  5. registration volumes don't lie:
  6. there are 24,936 ".news" domain names registered;
  7. there are 7,239 ".press" doamins registered.

New gTLD reminders:
  • Most recent Sunrise Period announcements;
  • The Trademark Clearinghouse ("TMCH") calendar;
  • News clubs can register their ".club" domain name here and search for a "Premium" on
