Would you like some weed (.farm)?

I was only after 3 domain names from Donuts 3 new gTLD strings this week that were .farm, .codes and .viajes. I got one and I am happy with that.

Judging from the zone files there was not a lot of action in the first 4-5 days of EAP on the 3 strings. The numbers below include the sunrise registrations and registrations up to EAP day 4 – and day 5:
.farm 61 – 184
.codes 69 – 112
.viajes 44 – 61

.Viajes did pretty bad even compared to .farm and .codes that are a couple of the worst Donuts new gTLDs.

Most of the .farm good (not many) keywords are either reserved or high premiums ($250-$450 renewals). .Codes doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. I don’t know the Spanish market so I am not sure about .viajes but judging from .travel and the recent launch of .uno things don’t seem promising.

Of course the bulk of domain name registrations happen after the 5th EAP day that started today and on general availability on Wednesday.

So I wanted 3 domain names since I guess there is a lot of money involved in the US with the legalization of cannabis in many states:
cannabis.farm (taken on EAP day 4 for about $700)
marijuana.farm (taken on EAP day 4 for about $750)
weed.farm (I got it on EAP day 5 for about $220)
(pot.farm was reserved)

I wasn’t prepared to pay more than $220 for these so I waited until day 5. Cannabis and weed have renewals at about $50 and marijuana at about $100.

Did you get any of these? I guess not!

  1. Weed is more of an illegal term, and in terms of raw farming, weeds are usually things farmers try to kill with pesticides.

    If you look at .codes you will see retailmenot.com spent $100K registering Internet.codes, discount.codes, promotional.codes, retail.codes etc… The single letter e’n’i where good single letters as well in this extension.

  2. I liked Pot.farm but it was reserved, I liked Hemp.farm maybe the best but it got picked up when it was still expensive…

  3. Still available for registration is Indica.Farm and Sativa.Farm. If you like both, you can still register Hybrid.Farm……….

  4. I registered:

    WeedBlends.com
    TheMedicalHemp.com
    Hippieyiyo.com
    ImportedWeed.com
    WeedSeedling.com

    and ….

  5. frank schilling selling shit out of .link, .gift & .pics almost all possible catchy domains reserved its better if he keeps that for his personal use inspite selling to public. Its my personal view about his extensions dont know how other guys react on this comment ………………….. Let See
