Two new gTLD’s launched into general availability (GA) yesterday .Live and .Studio both owned by Rightside (NAME) and one launched Tuesday offered by InterNetX; .SRL
Including domain names registered in the Sunrise period by trademark holders and those registered in the Early Access Program (EAP) where registrants paid an extra fee to register domain names before (GA); here are the totals for each new domain extension after the first day of GA where domains could be registered on first come, first served basis:
I personally pass on both Rightside extensions.
For me .Live is on the wrong side of the dot except for SaturdayNight.live which the registry wisely reserved and shouldn’t be registered by anyone but NBC
There are some naturals with .Studio like recording.studio and dance.studio both those domains are platinum priced domain names. Others like Ballet.Studio at $1,250 a year is not a domain investor’s play.
.SRL is the abbreviation for “Sociedad de Responsabilidad” or “Società a Responsabilità Limitata”. The domain extension .SRL is directed especially to limited liability companies in Spanish and Italian speaking countries, who have chosen the legal form of an “SRL”. .SRL Domains are only available to companies, which are administered i.e. as Sociedad de Responsabilidad Limitada or Società a Responsabilità Limitata.
