Uniregistry is launching 5 new gTLD’s today the 25th of November 2014 at 16:00 UTC.
.click which will have no reserved domains except for the 100 domains registered by the registry and domain names on the ICANN collision list
.Click is priced at $5.99 at Godaddy
The other four extensions of Uniregistry have quite a few reserved domains after I spent a few hours checking around for domain names yesterday.
.hosting is priced at $23.99 at Godaddy. There is already a .host and it has around 1,600 domain registrations.
.property is priced at $23.99 at Godaddy.com
.diet is priced at $14.99 at Godaddy.com
.help is also priced at $14.99 at Godaddy.
Uniregistry does not have premium priced registration and renewal domain names.
Uniregistry also announced last night that the registrar side of the business is now accepting Paypal.com and TopCoin and for every dollar spent at Uniregistry $.50 in Topcoin is earned:

What I take away from this is if Frank doesn’t want to keep any for himself and he’s giving them away at only $5.99 then they aren’t worth shit.
It will be interesting to watch though because all the good names will be available and they are super cheap. Let’s see what the masses think.
I think click is weak name, hence if he wants it to be popular, he needs to give away very premium names. Ones, that most registrars reserve. I think its a smart move. Since if you can get BT.click , it might be better then 3 or 4 letter version.
And people will get premium names for cheap, getting some like property.click, might give incentive for a person to try and develop the name. Since there is no upfront investment in domain.
All in all, i think thats the best move they could make. Since .click is very weak extension and competes with much better names in a flooded market. In this case, giving out everything and then some is rational strategy.
Michael Berkens says
As far as I know you won’t be able to get any domains shorter than 3 character on any Uniregistry string
Ahh didnt know, i thought they only reserved one letter and one number. I personally dont buy anything other then .nyc , so just watching from side lines.
Seymour Wilson says
According to Frank if you’ve got a .click domain you dont have to add click here.
And .property is a good domain for realtors who dont want to be known as realtors.
And .diet, well Im not sure, should be good though if Franks behind it.
Seymour Wilson says
Oh and dont forget .sexy if you want a sexy domain according to Frank.
Will I invest?
Well I feel confident I can trust Frank. A lot like Rick Schwartz. I mean, these are two guys who
wouldn’t take a dime off you if it wasn’t in their best interests.
