Did you know that there are about 60 top level domain names in sunrise right now?
This many domain name launches at once is difficult to track. Add to it early access programs, landrush, general availability, trademark claims periods, etc., and it is quite confusing even for domain name experts.
Enter Calzone, a free TLD calendar that has formally launched after being in beta for a few months.
Created by Thomas Barrett, president of domain name registrar EnCirca, Calzone streamlines the process of discovering important new TLD dates and easily adding them to your work calendar.
Barret believes the tool is useful for trademark lawyers, marketing managers and business owners who want to protect their brands. I think it can also be useful for domain name investors who want to keep tabs on when particular domain names are coming out.
I gave it a test drive this morning and found it rather simple to use.
