The .PICTET new gTLD

Working on the Finance new gTLD report this morning, I noticed a change in the .PICTET new gTLD with a short increase of domain names registered. This dotBrand seems to have started to deploy and appears to be communicating on one single domain name, instead of multiple: the domainname is www.group.pictet.

One could think new gTLDs for Trademarks were created to multiply the number of domain name registered to install a trademark on Internet using different domain names but this does not seem to be the choice of PICTET.

August is not really best moment to submit info related to new gTLDs. This is why the volume of info is low at the moment but September is coming. "Volume": it is what I do at Jovenet Consulting and it is something that I learnt after reading Communicator in 2003: the more information is spread about new gTLDs, the more it catches the eye.

Many of you know my passion for .CLUB : not only because they are a sponsor but also because .CLUB represents the perfect example of what a new gTLD is made for:
  1. Identity and;
  2. Precision.
This makes it an opportunity for me to announce that an auction will take place in September and I will be there to keep an eye on Chinese investors, because they will be there too.

New domain name registration volumes:
  • New gTLDs related to COMPANIES (newsletter only);
