Afilias adds another top level domain to its portfolio.
Domain name registry Afilias is acquiring the .Global top level domain, the company announced today.
Afilias already provides the backend registry services for the domain, so this should have no technical impact on domain name registrars that sell the domain.
.Global has about 50,000 registrations. It’s one of the healthier top level domains; it prices its domains high and has good registrar distribution. Retail prices are typically $50-$100 but the registry does first-year promotions.
GoDaddy is its top registrar with over 15,000 domains.
The top level domain also has healthy premium domain sales, which it publicly discloses on its site.
