.Buzz goes live today and like all new gTLD registries they are entitled to keep 100 domains for their own use for marketing and other purposes, but going through the list of .Buzz reserved domains it maybe the strangest list of 100 (actually 85 by my count) that I have seen for any registry.
Bill Doshier who owns the DotStrategy the company which applied to operate the .Buzz registry is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, but having reviewed a bunch of these 100 domain registry reserved lists, I’m going to call this one the strangest one I have seen to date.
Keep in mind there is nothing to stop the registry or anyone associated with it from registering domain names once they go live as well, which makes the use of some of the allotted 100 domains pretty strange.
Bigfoot.buzz, BillDoshier.buzz, CrowBar.buzz, DotStrategy.buzz, Hogs.buzz, Trout.buzz, Zombie.buzz just to name a few
Lets just say I don’t think those need to be restricted for the registry’s use.
I’m pretty sure those and many others on this list would have been available to be registered.
Of course we wish Bill and his team the best of luck today
Here is the list:
