Interesting new gTLD move today

A Club can be a ".blog" ;-)
The Registry in charge of developing .CLUB domain names took the decision to use a ".blog" domain name for the Blog section of its website.
A registry is the highest authority in the domain name chain (after ICANN) and has full power to act technically on all ".club" domain names worldwide. In this case, we are talking about more than 800,000 domain names.

This move is a good demonstration of why "new generic Top-Level Domain names" make sense, in one word: DESCRIPTIVENESS. Do ".com" domain names offer this option?

New domain name registration volumes:
  • New gTLDs related to SPORT;
  • New gTLDs related to REAL ESTATE;
  • New gTLDs related to ALCOHOL.
