.CLUB Is The 1st New gTLD To Reach 100,000 Sold Domain Names

club-new-gtld.CLUB Domains announced that it has sold its 100,000th new domain name today, setting a record as the first new generic top-level domain (gTLD) to sell 100,000 domains and continuing its streak as the best-selling new domain extension.

Other extensions that appear to have sold more domains than .Club have actually given out a lot of free domains. As many as 375,000 of them.

Namestat.org reports that that are 99,003 .club domains today and ntldstats.com 99,995 domains but that are a lot of domains that don’t have nameservers assigned and thus don’t appear in the zone files. These 2 websites are reporting domain name registration statistics based on zone files. The .Club registry numbers are certain to be more accurate.

“Entrepreneurs, brand owners, popular entertainers, corporations, domain investors and more from around the world have registered their own .CLUB websites, including entertainer 50 Cent’s 50InDa.Club, singer Demi Lovato’s Lovato.club, fitness expert Tiffany Rothe’s ICFC.club and many established Rotary, golf, country, yacht, auto, and sports clubs.  According to data compiled by Namestat.org, there are already over 150 .CLUB websites in the Alexa top 1 million websites by traffic, more than any other new top level domain name.

In just over 100 days since its launch, .CLUB websites have continued to grow in popularity, with some very interesting names and website concepts.  TheDudes.Club has launched as the “go-to place for all the things men find interesting;” LuckyDuck.club will soon launch as a gourmet coffee service; RoswellRotary.club, the Rowell Georgia Rotary chapter now forwards its old .com address to the new .club address; and many clubs, bloggers and businesses are registering from around the world every day.  ”

“We’ve seen an increase in not only entirely new businesses springing up specifically around the .CLUB domain, such as shaving.club, but also from companies that are creating micro sites within their larger sites as a private, members-only address that offers additional benefits and privileges for `club’ insiders,” said Colin Campbell, president and CEO of .CLUB Domains.  “We believe we have sold more than any other new domain because the word CLUB is so meaningful, and has recognition all over the world. It is easy to remember and allows for a great, catchy domain name.

Many premium .CLUB domains have also been sold to corporations and investors, including eat.club selling for $20,000; baby.club and Barbie.club each selling for $5,000; Ritz.club selling for $7,500; Mary Kay’s purchasing beauty.club and skincare.club; and many more.   “But there are still many, many great .CLUB names still available for under $15 a year,” added Campbell.

.CLUB domain names are available for purchase from major Domain Name sellers everywhere, such as GoDaddy, Name.com, Hexonet, 101 Domain, 1and1, United Domains, and more.

  1. Question is how many of them are in use and registered by non-domainers. Very few. And so low is the value of that gTLD.

  2. There is 1 big buyer who owns a large chunk of .club’s… also many domainers are active buyers into .club. The growth has not been what was predicted, but renewal time, will tell a better story.

    • Yes there is 1. And yes I am an active buyer too as I own 1 .club domain. But from that to saying that most .club domains are owned by domainers there is a long distance.

      Maybe I should do a test with one New gTLD on how many domains are owned by domainers. Which one do you prefer?

  3. I personally think .CLUB is one of the new gtlds with a future. This domain extension is distinctly different from all the others, imo. Plus, the price isn’t ridiculous like some of the other ones.
