We just received this from Uniregistry which is launching .Click on November 25th.
Pricing for a .Click domain will be $6.88 or less at retail.
“We will no longer have a registry reserved list at the time of launch for any domain name beyond single-characters.
If your registrar has been accepting pre-registrations, please note that we have removed this list from the Production Web Console and there is no longer a need to check against these names. .click has already completed ICANN’s Wildcarded Controlled Interruption Period.
As a result, there will be no SLD Block List from ICANN’s Alternative Path to Delegation.
After the initial launch in GA, we may registry reserve some names that were not taken by registrants, but the first chance at these names will go to new registrants.
In summary, the only names held back from the .click GA launch will be:
ICANN Policy Prohibited Names (by the terms of our contract with ICANN),
Uniregistry Registered Names (active names registered in the name of Uniregistry, Corp. as the registrant, a list of 100 names or fewer), and
“Click” is a hybrid noun and verb that is infinitive and powerful. A .click domain name expresses a call to action and is a great alternative to .com, .net, and .org.
.click applies to any business or individual interested in creating a unique pathway to share content online. As the internet evolves, .click will provide increased naming opportunities for domain name registrants. There will be no need for the phrase “click here” when the link to your URL already shows visitors what to do – .click it!”
I do not think there has been (or will be) another name-ending in this round that will be launched this openly, and this cheap.
Let’s have some fun for a change. ; )
Joseph Peterson says
I have a little proposition to run by you, if you’re open to ideas.
Raymond Hackney says
Would be interested in hearing at the appropriate time.
So two-letter LL.click names will be already available?
Raymond Hackney says
I believe Peter two characters are another animal completely separate from the Collision list.
LL names are currently not available, Michael can elaborate.
Seymour Wilson says
ok so we’ve got .sexy for people who want a sexy domain, .property for realtors who dont want to be known as realtors, and now .click so you dont need the phrase click here
