Hot today: .VOTE & .GAMES new gTLDs

Gamers seem to have noticed the launching of the .GAMES new gTLD. I checked domain name registration figures today and noticed that the Registry has already more than twice the number registrations than the singular version of the extension: the .GAME new gTLD. The price difference probably explains this.

There is an advertising campaign that has just launched to encourage American voters "to do their duty". The Iron Man is on front page and I am confident that such initiatives will help new gTLDs grow faster. I believe it is important to add that "vote" is a French word too and I would appreciate if someone could pass the word to @axellelemaire. The campaign:

New domain name registration volumes:
  • New gTLDs related to SPORT (updated yesterday);
  • New gTLDs related to ALCOHOL (updated yesterday);
  • New gTLDs related to REAL ESTATE (updated yesterday);
  • FRENCH new gTLD applications;
  • New gTLDs related to RELIGION.
