The Great Land Rush Has Begun

ENDS May 1st!

Game On!  Now is the time to grab your perfect .CLUB name during our Land Rush (Priority Pre-Registration) period. If there's a great .CLUB name you must have or if you are a Domain Investor or anyone who wants to increase your chances of getting the exact name you want, registering during Land Rush significantly improves your chance to secure your desired name prior to General Availability (which starts May 7).

During Land Rush there are thousands of great “Premium Quality” names available at Land Rush prices. We’ve collected a list of some suggested great .CLUB names and you can see the Land Rush list here. At the end of the 30 day Land Rush, if there is more than one applicant for the same name registrants are provided an opportunity to participate in an auction for that name, managed by SEDO. When registering during Land Rush, we recommend checking out different Domain Name Registrars as their prices vary, and will typically range from $160 – $250. Act now... Land Rush ends May 1st.

Another .CLUB Asian Tour: Beijing, Macau, Singapore

March was a busy travel month for the .CLUB team, with half the month spent in Asia.  China continues to be a very exciting market for .CLUB, with the word "Club," in English, carrying a lot of meaning and prestige.  Enroute to the ICANN49 meeting in Singapore, we first stopped by both Beijing for Registrar meetings and then Macau for the spectacular Auction Event held by our friends at TLD Registry

Held in the magnificent China Rouge club in the Galaxy Hotel and Casino, the TLD Registry event was a great opportunity to spend quality time with many of the leaders of the domain industry in China. It was also great to participate in the auction itself, where .CLUB was the winning bidder on a lot of Chinese "club" related names.  From Macau we went directly to Singapore for a very busy ICANN meeting.  Stay tuned for more global travel by the .CLUB team.

Brand, Domain Names, SXSW & Loyalty Expo

During the Sunrise and Land Rush periods, our focus has been heavily on informing brands and Trademark holders about the benefits of registering their respective brand.club names.  With that in mind the .CLUB team has been on the road almost constantly to meet with brands and brand marketers and invite them to join the .CLUB.  One of the most attended marketing events of the year is the annual South By Southwest (SXSW) conference in Austin, Texas.  

A massive event that literally consumes all of downtown Austin and it’s immediate environs, the “Interactive” portion of SXSW attracts every imaginable digital marketer from major brands to struggling startups.  Heralded as “Spring Break for Geeks,” SXSW is non-stop marketing mayhem.  So how could we resist?
