For those of us in the domain industry, we are fortunate to be part of an online, digital ecosystem that is able to continue to provide our products and services to partners and customers who may be confined to their homes and restricted in their travel. In truth, while sequestered at home, many people may be inspired to pursue their passions, learn a new skill, share a skill they have, or start a new online business or community. With time on their hands and the internet at their fingertips, this is a time when the entrepreneurial spirit can rise and new startups may emerge. All of these new ideas will need domain names, hosting, email, and other services our industry provides.
With that in mind, we continue to see many excellent premium .CLUB domains being registered during the recent months and weeks, including we.club, wealth.club, retirement.club, safe.club, and many more. We appreciate the strength of people’s passion and confidence for the future as they use this time to create new online ideas and businesses. We’re honored to be a part of the process.
Strong Premium Sales
Since our launch .CLUB has earned total premium name revenue of $7.7 million USD. We have seen and continue to see great interest for premium .CLUB Names as we are close to our sixth year of operation. We created several programs and products to assist end-users to have easy access to .CLUB premium names.:
- Names.club: Every business needs a meaningful, memorable, brandable domain name. With a wide choice of meaningful new domain extensions (.club, .shop, .Miami, .Online, etc.), there is no reason to make up or misspell words. Names.club was started to focus on businesses that need a powerful, SEO-friendly, keyword domain that is perfect for their brand and online presence. The Names.club platform has both Easy payments (see below) and one-time purchase payment options.
- Easy Payments: At Names.club we offer a 60-month easy payment plan option where buyers can pay for their chosen .CLUB (and other) premium names in 60 no-interest monthly payments after an initial 15% down payment. This gives entrepreneurs and startups cost-effective access to a great portfolio of brandable domain names.
- Broker/Affiliate Program: The Names.club broker program is an affiliate program where domain broker, agencies, etc. can earn a commission on selling names listed at Names.club. Brokers get a custom code that gives their customers a 5% discount, and the broker/affiliate gets a 10% commission on the sales they generate.
