  1. We own Wellesley.club Hillary Clintons alum -paid all of $1( a one day special thing) I wonder if its worth anything?

  2. In the aftermarket, .CLUB seems to be doing a lot better than most other nTLDs. But another good thing about .CLUB is that a lot end users are actually using them to build websites. That is really the ultimate goal for any domain extension.

  3. How come you used to be so strongly against the new gtlds and now you have become their biggest cheerleader? You are gonna look mighty dopey with lots of egg on your face when the gtld turkeys come home to roost. Tweet Tweet! Face it, they suck and no one wants to use them as a primary website. When you give up both OnlineDomain.Com and SoldDomains.Com and instead switch over to Sold.Domains (exclusively), then I will rethink. Til then, me think you are a HIPPIEcrat

    • I was not against new gtlds. Please read all my posts if you don’t remember.
      I was against some new gtlds, like .xyz and .horse that I simply didn’t like.
      I now own more than 500 New gTLDs.

      You might think what you want but I speak with actions. I have invested more than $50k in new gtlds. I am not just talking about them.
      Read on.

      Do you suggest I turn off SoldDomains.Com just to satisfy you? Why would I ever do that? This is against any logic and what I advise companies to do.

  4. Do I understand correctly that SnapNames will be an exclusive partner for .CLUB expired auctions? Or will they merely be equipped to handle expired .CLUB domains – possibly along with other drop catchers?

    • From my understanding Snapnames will exclusively offer expired .club domains.
      These will probably be reserved after the expiration/deletion cycle and then auctioned.
      The ones that don’t sell will then be released for registration.
      This is a new process so anyone from .club please correct me if I am wrong.

      Of course many registrars will soon start(or have already started) to auction new gtlds before deletion.
      Possibly through namejet and snapnames. 🙂
      Or direct like dynadot does.

      • Thanks Konstantinos,

        Registrars have the opportunity to auction expiring domains before deleting them, as always.

        Deleting .Club domains will be listed on SnapNames and available for a backorder then subsequent auction sale.

        If the deleting domain does not sell in an auction, it will be released for General Availability.

        The exception will be certain registry reserved deleting premium names. If they don’t sell in an auction they will remain reserved and eventually be released to registrars through our tiered premium registration program.

        Hope this info helps. 🙂
