LinkedIn: a good news for .CLUB domain names

Good to know: LinkedIn now accepts to capture URLs using a domain name ending in .CLUB. Such change now makes it possible to discussion group participants to start sharing with a source of information using a .club domain name.

A scarry business model coming for Round 2 of the ICANN new gTLD program?

Extract: "If losing an auction has become a way to recover part of the money invested in a new domain name extension, let's not forget that applying does cost $185,000.00 only (a little more actually because the ICANN has been very slow in launching its new gTLD program and some entrepreneurs lost a lot of money waiting for a launch date), it has also become a way to ... earn a lot more money, even much more when rich applicants are many and definitely want to win their domain name extension in the auction".

Read my complete article on gTLD.club: http://www.gtld.club/2015/04/a-sad-business-model-for-round-2-of.html and register your .CLUB domain name with Uniregistry.

Good news for .CLUB domain names

Domain names in LinkedIn
LinkedIn is a fantastic tool because it allows to paste a hyperlink in the "discussion title "field to catch an article. Once the "discussion title" is modified with a nice Title, more details can be added below to initiate the discussion.

It is exactly what the 1890 subscribers of the "New generic Top-Level Domains" group do on LinkedIn everyday.

The GOOD news
Until vey recently, it was possible to paste a URL or a domain name using the .com extension and I could make it work with .consulting domains too but for other TLDs, I had to proceed a different way and generate another URL.

LinkedIn now works with .CLUB domain names and it makes it much faster to use any content published on internet using a .CLUB domain name to initiate a discussion on the basis of an article.

How to proceed in a LinkedIn group:
  1. Copy your .club URL;
  2. Paste it in the "discussion title" field (and wait for 5 seconds);
  3. Option: add details below;
  4. Click on "Share".
Done :-)
