No surprises in initial launches of four medical-themed domain names.
As I previewed earlier this week, the only four domain names entering true general availability this week were medical-themed domains from Donuts.
Here are how many domains are registered in each of the four after the first day, based on zone file numbers:
The numbers are about where I expected them to be. As I mentioned earlier this week, three of the four domains are in Donuts’ highest price tier, which limits investor speculation. Also, the medical community tends to be slow to respond to domain names.
.Dental gives a lot of promise to .Dentist, which Rightside is launching later this year. I think .dentist is much better than .dental.
