.Games and .Shopping hit registrars this week

Rightside and Donuts released new domain names this week.

dot-gamesTwo new top level domain names launched this week with one entering general availability and the other hitting early access.

Rightside’s (NASDAQ:NAME) .Games entered general availability with a number of video game companies on board. It’s priced affordably; expect to pay $15-$20 per year at registrars unless the domains are premium.

Compare this to Uniregistry’s .Game (singular) top level domain name, which will set you back about $350 per year.

.Game has 2,184 names in the zone file as of yesterday, according to nTLDStats. .Games already has about 4,500 after just its first partial day of general availability.

Donuts’ .Shopping also hit the market. It’s in a seven-day Early Access period, during which domain names can be purchased at a premium. The launch timing was likely set to compete with GMO’s .shop, which launches in general availability Monday, September 26. Both .shop and .shopping seem to be comparably priced, with registrars offering them for $20-$40.
