The new gTLD info of the day (Wednesday)

Wonder.land
wonder.land is at the same time a musical and a website build with a new Top Level Domain. The musical is described as ” inspired by Lewis Carroll’s iconic story, wonder.land is a coming-of-age adventure that explores the blurred boundaries between our online and offline lives.” It has been created by Damon Albarn, Moira Buffini and Rufus Norris, and is playing since summer 2015.

The New gTLD Domain Name Disputes
Much of the attention on domain name disputes among the new generic top-level domain names (gTLDs) has focused on the new dispute policy that arrived with them — the Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS). But, an increasing number of new gTLD registrations are being decided under the pre-existing (and well-entrenched) Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).

CentralNic Buys Registrar Instra.com
CentralNic (LON:CNIC) is buying privately-owned domain name registrar, Instra Group, funded in part from a £10mln placing of stock with investors at 40p a share, for almost £16mln (A$33mln).

Decent .club domain names dropping soon
Again, here are some of the gems on the .CLUB SnapNames monthly auction. My team filtered out some decent names set to drop shortly. Any of these can be bid on by SnapNames. If they do not sell on SnapNames the names will be placed in the June 15th, 2016 tiered pricing premium name list set to be made available through the registrars.

gTLDs: Baby, you can drive my .car
December 2015 will see the launch of three generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs), all focused on the automobile industry. However, the launch of .CAR, .CARS and .AUTO are unlikely to drive up domain name registration volumes due to the very high registration fees being charged by Cars Registry Limited, the joint venture that is the Registry operator for all three gTLDs.
