North Sound Names also registered 10,000 domain names in a third Uniregistry string yesterday .Blackfriday, which launched in July of this year.
After the first day of general availability .Blackfriday had just 401 domain name registrations including those registered by trademark holders during the Sunrise period. .Blackfriday had around 850 registrations before yesterday registrations by North Sound Names.
.Blackfriday is now the 42th most registered new gTLD according to ntldstats,com with over 10,800 domain name registered.
It looks like North Sound Names registered mainly three and four letter domain names, and many geographic domains in Black Friday.
Its not clear if these domains were available to be registered or were on Uniregistry’s reserved list.
