Christmas came early for .CLUB
Suffice it to say .CLUB is officially on-fire, it is one of the fastest growing domain extensions in history and with over 420,000 domains registered things don’t seem to be slowing down. Strong interest in short and numeric domain names have earned .CLUB an additional 100,000 registrations in the last two weeks

New gTLDs: Innovate or Die
There is a movement towards developing TLD strategies. What’s it all about though?
I believe there are 3 key benefits:
  1. Secure brand identity
  2. Enhance marcoms
  3. Improve service delivery
I do go in to this is more detail in my recent blog post 'Innovate or Die'. Would welcome any thoughts others have and how businesses can innovate in this new space
