.Quest is next up on the company’s launch schedule.
The rollout of new top level domains has slowed to a trickle these days, but one company continues to bring the domains to market.
New top level domain name company XYZ says it has acquired five top level domain names that it plans to launch in 2020.
One of them is .quest, a dot-brand domain name that it acquired last year from Hong Kong company QNet.
XYZ pitches the domain name like this:
Knowledgeable businesses, organizations, and individuals can use .Quest to mark their website as the leading destination for their audience. It will allow the domain owner to effectively show their customers that they will guide them to the end of their search.
The company did not reveal the other four top level domains it has acquired, but the company has a history of acquiring domains from companies that registered them as dot-brands and then repurposing them as generic domains. For example, last year it launched .monster after acquiring it from job site Monster.com. (If I weren’t busy at NamesCon today, I might search ICANN’s website for the other domains. Readers are welcome to help. Or Kevin Murphy might have spotted them.)
I suspect .quest will be on the lower end of the price scale. XYZ offers some domain names for dirt cheap, such as .xyz, and others for thousands of dollars per year, such as .car.
