Famous Four’s latest launch is off to a fast start.
Famous Four Media launched the .Science top level domain name this morning, and registration activity has been brisk so far.
At roughly three hours after launch, 9,680 .science domain names have been registered. The company expects the number to top 10,000 within the next half hour.
Why is .science doing so well? It’s not all rocket science: some registrars are giving the domain names away free or cheap, spurring extra demand. Kind of like .casa and .work, why not try it out for a year?
Alpnames.com is offering the domains for free, and OVH has a $.50 offer.
Not all registrars have such cut-rate pricing, however. You definitely want to shop around.
