New TLD .domains launches tomorrow.
Starting tomorrow you’ll be able to register .domains domains.
Seriously: anything.domains will be up for grabs.
The Early Access Program phase for Donuts’ top level domain .domains starts on March 5. A week later, on March 12, .domains domains will be available at standard pricing of around $30-$40.
I’m curious what types of domains will be registered in this namespace. I’m sure some registrars will participate.
As for domain investment opportunities, I’ve always found that domainers hate to pay a lot for domains with “domain” in them. I’m not quite sure why.
A few possible names stand out, but unfortunately they’ll be difficult to get.
Donuts has registry reserved premium.domains. Register.domains is on the name collisions list, but even if it wasn’t I suspect it would be reserved. Donuts has reserved register.TLDs in its other domains.
One domain that will be available is expired.domains. But you’ll have to open your pocketbook. The domain is a premium one at a level I’ve never seen before from Donuts.
GoDaddy is asking a whopping $1,499 per year. Name.com has it for $960 per year.
If you buy it during the Early Access Program period it will set you back even more for the first year.
