$135 million for the .WEB new gTLD

We now have a winner for the .WEB new gTLD auction and it appears that he paid 135 million dollars for this acquisition. The .WEB looks like an attractive TLD but there are many generic new gTLDs such as .WEBSITE - .SITE - .ONLINE, etc... We track registration figures of these generic new gTLDs at Jovenet Consulting. The report is updated on Friday.
