Targeted to eco-friendly sites, .Earth launches on Thursday.
Earlier today I wrote about two new top level domain names that launched today: .broker and .forex. Investment opportunities are limited since .broker will set you back about $700 and .Forex is over $1,000 per year.
There are two other domain names launching this week.
On Wendesday, Zodiac Gemini launches .八卦, which translates loosely as “gossip” in Chinese. If you are anchored by the prices of .broker and .forex, then you won’t get sticker shock from the $300-$350 being charged for this new extension.
Thursday marks the launch of .Earth, a domain name targeted to “green” sites. It will compete squarely with .Green, but can also be considered a generic. Pricing is cheap compared to many new TLDs: GoDaddy has the domains for just $17.99.
