Afilias and Uniregistry launch new domain name options this week.
Two new top level domain names become available in general availability this week.
Afilias launched .promo today. The most obvious use for this domain name is for coupon codes and sales. The domains are about $10-$15 retail.
.Promo is interesting because it was originally applied for by a different company and Afilias bought it after the original applicant decided to sell.
Uniregistry launches .Game on Tuesday. This is going to be a tough one for domain name investors because annual fees are high. Expect to pay about $350 per year to register a .game domain.
This might make sense for an app or video game maker, but the carrying costs are very high for domain investors.
Also keep in mind that Rightside will launch .Games later this year.
