Cars Registry, a joint venture between XYZ and Uniregistry, today announced the availability of three new domain extensions: .Cars, .Car, and .Auto. Between December 9th and January 12th, these domains will first be made available exclusively to trademark holders registered in the Trademark Clearinghouse. The new extensions provide the auto industry with a distinct marketing advantage over today's expensive or often over-long, and consequently harder to remember, .com URLs -- a critical challenge in an increasingly mobile era.
New gTLDs Gain Momentum
As hundreds of new domain extensions entered the market in 2014, one question was on everyone’s mind: how would they perform in search? After tracking and comparing search results for nearly a year and a half, a recent search engine marketing study found compelling evidence that new gTLDs are converting at a much higher rate than .COM.
.CLUB Hits Record Breaking $1,622,164.13
As of November 30, 2015, total cumulative sales of registry reserved premium .CLUB names came to $2,890,363.40. The highest single sale remains Wine.club at $140,000.00, however November’s blockbuster sales include a 7-figure package deal to a single Chinese Investor.
After I become a TMCH member, how and when can I register the .Cars, .Car, and .Auto domains that I want?
You can register your exact-match trademark domains starting on December 9, 2015 at any participating retailer. Domains are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is important to secure your marks early on in the Sunrise period. In order for your registration to be completed in Sunrise, the domain must match the SMD file you submit with your order.
