Of The 9,025 .Voting Domains Registered Over 97% Registered To Co. With Ties To The Registry?

July 24th, 2014 Comments off

One company is responsible for registering over 97% of the 9,025 .Voting new gTLD domain names.

We reported earlier today that .Voting had 9,025 domain names registered after the first day of general availability

However we see that 8,811 of the 9,025 domain names were registered by the domain name registrar, Registry Gate GmbH” which seems to be a member of the Key Drive family of registrars.

All of the domain names registered at Registry Gate were registered to the same registrant:

Registrant Name: Chief Executive Officer
Registrant Organization: innotarget AG & Co. KG
Registrant Street: Max-Stromeyer-Strasse 116
Registrant City: Konstanz
Registrant Postal Code: 78467
Registrant Country: DE
Registrant Phone: +49.363937503639
Registrant Phone Ext: 3750
Registrant Email: hostmaster@innotarget.net

Now here is where it gets interesting

Here is the whois record for innotarget.net which is the registrants email address on the .Voting domains:

Registrant Organization: Innotarget AG & Co. KG
Registrant Street: Max-Stromeyer-Str. 116
Registrant City: Konstanz
Registrant State/Province:
Registrant Postal Code: 78467
Registrant Country: DE
Registrant Phone: +49.753136393720
Registrant Email: 118e7782r4a@opensrs.namespace4you.com
Admin Name: Dirk Hamm

The name Dirk Hamm matches the name of the contact for the new gTLD application filed with ICANN for .Voting which was filed by Valuetainment Corp.

The email address for Mr. Hamm on the ICANN new gTLD application for .Voting is dirk.hamm@votingtool.de, which uses the Name Servers:

ns.namespace4you.de
ns2.namespace4you.de

These are the same Name Servers used on all of the 8,811 .Voting domain names registered to innotarget AG & Co. KG

This certainly would not be the first case of a new gTLD registry registering domains in its own extension but certainly raises the bar to a whole new level in terms of the percentage of domains registered and less than an transparent manner.

This Weeks New gTLD 1st Day Totals: .Voting 9,025; .Kaufen 4,325; Consulting 3,852; Media 3,438

July 24th, 2014 Comments off

Yesterday a bunch of new gTLD’s went into general availability (GA)  meaning domain names can be registered live on a first come first serve basis.

All total include any Sunrise registrations and any Landrush/Early Access Program (EAP) registration which took place before GA:

.Voting 9.025

.Kaufen which is German for the word “Buy” had 4,325

.Consulting  3,852

.Media 3,438

.Pictures 1,548

.Lease .538

We noted yesterday that .Pictures was the 4th of very similar domains to launch including .pics, photo and .photos and finds itself in 4th place.

Again we would point to first movers advantage.

We also asked in a poll a month ago which of the political domain names would to the best between .Voting, .GOP, .Democrat and .Republican .

.Republican hasn’t launched yet but .Voting blew the doors off of .GOP and .Democrat

 

I picked up a good chunk of .Media domain names including Trending.media, Breaking.media, Publishing.Media, Newspaper.Media, Buying.Media, Magazine.media, Major.Media, Broadcast.Media; Outdoor.Media;  TheSocial.Media (social.media was reserved)  just to name a few.

July 23rd, 2014 Comments off

We published a post earlier today that included .Pictures that went into general availability today.

We thought we would take a look at some of the more interesting Sunrise and Early Access Program (EAP) registrations for .Pictures keeping in mind some of these had a premium registration and renewal rate in addition to the EAP cost:

gTLD’s: Now It Gets Interesting: .Pics, .Pictures, Photo, .Photos

July 23rd, 2014 Comments off

Tomorrow the new gTLD .Pictures launches into general availability  status meaning it can be registered on a first come first served basis.

We have been chatting about plural and singular new gTLD’s for a while as well as vertical competition but with the launch of this new domain name extension we can actually start to see what the effect of these different but similar strings have on the new gTLD program.

.Photos

.Photos was the first of the five to launch on February 26th an is a Donuts extension.

.Photos currently has over 13,000 registrations placing it as the 20th most popular gTLD extension.

.Photos is priced at $17.99 at Godaddy.

.Photos has premium domain names priced at premium registration and renewal rates.

.Pics

.Pics launched on April 15th and is owned by Uniregistry.

The domain is priced at $19.88 at Uniregistry (Godaddy is not selling the extension)

There are over 4,000 .Pics domains registered.

All domains are priced the same but the registry reserved many domains.

An affiliated company North Sound Names has bought some 40K+ domain names in Uniregistry strings but we don’t know how many were bought under this string if any.

.Photo

.Photo also launched with .Pics on April 15th and is owned by Uniregistry.

There are over 8,000 .Photo domain names registered

The domain is priced at $29.95 at Uniregisty.com (extension not for sale at Godaddy)

An affiliated company North Sound Names has bought some 40K+ domain names in Uniregistry strings but we don’t know how many were bought under this string if any.

.Pictures

.Pictures domains are priced at $14.99 at Godaddy.

.Pictures goes into general availability today and its a Donuts string.

I just pulled the zone file and there are less than 200 registrations counting Sunrise and Early Access Program (EAP) registrations.

.Pictures has premium domain names priced at premium registration and renewal rates

We intentionally left .Photograph off the list, although certainly in the vertical we think the buy for this domain is the professional photographer and is a different kind of domain that the other three.

So what can we tell?

Well arguably .Photos is the best of the lot, but first mover advantage is pretty apparent.

Beyond that pricing seems not to be as important.

I’m not sure your going to get a huge increase is registrations because your retail price is $10 more or less than a similar string.

Renewal time will be telling especially when it comes to domains that have premium renewal pricing.

.Moe Ends 1st Day Of General Avalibility With 1K Domains & Only Has 199,998,930 To Go

July 23rd, 2014 Comments off

The .Moe registry predicted that .Moe would get 200 Million domain name registrations in short order, blowing past .Com registration which are at over 113,500,000 registrations.

Well after the first day .Moe is well on its way after racking up 1,070 registrations after Sunrise, Landrush and on the 1st day of General Availability (GA).

.Moe is only short of its 200,0000,000 goal by 199,998,930.

At Name.com the price of a .Moe domain registration is $19.95

If your curious as to what people are registering under .Moe, three number domain are definitely popular as well as three letter domains 4 letter domains, first names and keywords.

There seems to be a decedent number of registrations using Moe to mean More or as used in pop culture the word “Mo” as in Get.Moe or MoeMoney.moe (yes really)

And yes someone registered curlylarry.moe, larrycurly.moe, larrycurlyand.moe and real fans will get; slowlyiturned.moe

Someone also registered m-o-e.moe

Netsol .XYZ Registrations Top 300,000, Back Over 85% of all .XYZ Registrations

July 23rd, 2014 Comments off

ntldstats.com updated once again today and the number of .XYZ domain names registered at Network Solutions topped 305,000 registrations.

The total number of .XYZ registrations is at over 355,000

The share of .XYZ registrations attributable to NetworkSolutions (NetSol) is now back over 85%.

Network Solutions has been giving free .XYZ domain names to its existing customers on an opt out basis.

The issue was the  “Total count of unprocessed Domains:” which  just a few days ago as  listed on ntldstats.com as 44,945 Domains”

I wrote to ntldstats.com to ask them what unprocessed domains meant and why the amount of unprocessed domains for .XYZ was well over 10% of the total number of domains and higher percentage wise than any other new gTLD.

I got this response from ntldstats.com on Friday:

“”We have some trouble with centralnic right now. I am already in contact with centralnic/xyz to investigate if there is a way to get around it.

Right now we only count domains listed in zonefile as active – we can’t update the registrar stats for xyz. I hope that we can fix it until next week.””

CentralNic is the backend provider for the .XYZ registry.

It appears all of the nprocessed domains have now been accounted for by ntldstats.com

I’ll Say It, 10K .Tokyo Domain Registrations Is Not Good

July 23rd, 2014 Comments off

.Tokyo launched and taking into account the 80+ Sunrise and Landrush application I would say a first day total of less than 10,000 registrations isn’t great.

The price of a .Tokyo domain name registration was very reasonable priced at around $15,

There were no premium registration and renewal priced domains although there were certainly reserved domains.

There were no residence restrictions on registrants.

Tokyo has a population of over 13 million people in the city and over 35 Million people in the Metro area.

That’s a lot of people.

Beyond that Tokyo is a economic power house.

According to Wikipedia, Tokyo has the largest metropolitan economy in the world.

Citing a study conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers, the Tokyo urban area (35.2 million people) had a total GDP of US$2.91 trillion in 2012 (at purchasing power parity), which topped that list.

51 of the companies listed on the Global 500 are based in Tokyo, almost twice that of the second-placed city (Paris).

The city gets an estimated 5 million tourist a year from outside Japan and 420 million from Japan.

So its a city of over 13 Million people in the city, 35 million in the metro, a very lucrative economy with a huge corporate presence coupled with a low registration price and high tourism and they can only get 9,000 registrations on the 1st day of registration.

I have to call it like I see it and the results are not impressive in my opinion.

Moreover it appears only 8,000 of the 10,000 new gTLD .Tokyo may have come from within the country as the only Japanese registrar in the top 10, logged just over 8,000 registrations including Sunrise and landrush applications with the balance some 2,000 registrations coming from those who do to live or work in Tokyo.

Of course its only day 1 but I think so far pretty disappointing results.

Amazon Settles a New gTLD Contention Set By Private Auction As Donuts Wins .Group

July 22nd, 2014 Comments off

donutsimages

 

 

 

 

Amazon has apparently participated in its 1st new gTLD private auction losing .Group to Donuts.

There were 5 applicants for the new gTLD .Group

Amazon (AMZN)

Donuts

Top Level Design, LLC (Raymond King .Wiki & .ink)

Straat.co (related to former owner of the .Co Registry)

Tucows.com (TCX)

All applications other than the Donuts application for .Group have been withdrawn from ICANN’s site.

I haven’t seen any announcements from the two public companies in this auction or from anyone else.

I believe with 5 applicants this may be the largest contention set to be resolved by a private auction.

As far as I know it is also the first private auction for both Amazon and Straat.

Although some in the community believed that Amazon or Google would win every auction they were in be it a private auction or the ICANN last Resort auction, I have long-held the opinion that Amazon and Google are not going to pay an unlimited amount for each of the strings they applied for and that they would, like other large applicants, wind up getting outbid on some strings.

That appears to be the case with .Group

.Tokyo Is Live & Got Over 800 Sunrise/Landrush Domains Led By Apple

July 22nd, 2014 Comments off

.Tokyo launched today and is live for domain registrations which seem to be running around $15 a year.

It is by far the largest city to have launched its own new gTLD extension with a population of over 13 million people.

I went through the zone file and found Apple who rarely participates in new gTLD Sunrise periods seemed to get a lot of .Tokyo domain names.

Anyway here is a list of some of the more interesting .Tokyo domain names taken in Sunrise and Landrush and may include some domains registered by the registry for the promotion of the registry:

.Moe Launches Today & Predicts It Will Have 200 Million Registrations

July 22nd, 2014 Comments off

“.Moe” Could Potentially Hit over 200 Million Registrations! ”

Is the first line of a press release out this morning by Interlink Co., Ltd., a new Domain Registry Operator, announcing that the new gTLD .Moe is in general availability meaning it is open for live domain name registrations on a first-come, first-served basis.

Interlink calls .Moe the “Internet’s most unique Top Level Domain (TLD)”

Of course there are over 113 Million .com registrations so if the registry hit there predicted 200 million registrations it would make the world no longer a .Com world but a .Moe world.

Its one of the boldest predictions I have ever read which the registry seems to have based on the results off a poll it took of a whopping 100 people, 70 of which preferred .Moe to .Com.

“The word “moe” (pronounced as “moh-ay”) comes from the Japanese Otaku (geek) culture and is used to deeply express “kawaii” (cute things) or things you “love” where words just won’t do. The “moe” subculture is globally recognized for anime, manga, comics, visual novels, gamers, cosplayers, and hobbyists.”

The PR goes on to say that “Interlink conducted a survey to identify which new gTLDs users have the most interest in while participating as a sponsor at the Japan Expo event held in Paris, France (2-6 July 2014). Participants were asked to select their preferences for various domains (ex. “.moe” vs. “.com”; “.moe” vs. “paris”). The results showed that “.moe” was more popular amongst this audience by a large margin over other popular new gTLDs (see below for more details of survey).”

“Calculating the results for “.moe” vs. “.com” (“.moe” won by a vote of 70 to 30) the number of “.moe” registrations could potentially double “.com” (113,401,886 as of January 2014!). ”

“If the entire world population were Otaku (geeks) “.moe” could hit 264,604,400 registrations!”

*Interlink surveyed participants of all ages at the Japan Expo exhibition booth. Each person was allowed to answer only one questionnaire, and each survey closed once it reached 100 votes. The results below show the number of votes for each set of TLDs.

Which domain do you prefer: .moe or .com?

Result:”.moe” (70) vs. “.com” (30)

Which domain do you prefer: “.moe” or “.paris”

Result:”.moe” (82) vs. “.paris” (18)

Which new gTLD do you prefer?

Result:”.moe” (61), “.club” (17), “.xyz” (10), “.dance” (6), “.vegas” (4), .shabaka” (2)

To find out where you can register your .Moe domain name you can click here Hint Not at Godaddy.

.Moe domain registrations are around $17 at Hexonet.
