DomainPunch’s latest tool is eye-opening.
There are a lot of new top level domain names out there. Most of them grow by a dozen or so registrations every day.
Now that the brand protection and investor rush is over, who is registering these domains?
Here’s a quick and simple tool from DomainPunch to see domain names that were added to the zone files the previous day. It’s pretty interesting.
I used the tool this week to investigate what types of domains people are still registering in .NYC. People registered Arthritis.nyc, Psychotherapy.nyc and Psychology.nyc this week, which seem like great domains to have still been available.
Take a look at the .photography adds and you’ll see a pattern of firstlastname or small photography companies: philiphunton.photography, musclebear.photography, anthonykirk.photography.
Here are some others:
.Today: Beachlife.today, FitnessNews.today, Ginger.today
.Rocks, now more popular than .ninja: BarefootYoga.rocks, MedicalPot.rocks, DiscJockey.rocks
.Audio – HighFidelity.audio, Microphones.audio, Vocals.audio
.Events – Hiphop.events, Maker.events, Rap.events
I had fun playing around with the tool and seeing what people are registering.
