Like many 5 year old’s we’re feeling a bit rambunctious and filled with excitement. Yes, today is our birthday! 5 years ago today the .CLUB top-level domain was launched and made available for registration to the general public. After more than two years of fund-raising, applications, contention and finally a successful auction, the .CLUB extension became a reality 5 years ago today.
And what a 5 years it has been! Thanks to our amazing partners, friends, and the support of our families we’ve seen .CLUB grow into a leading new extension, with over 1.5 million registrations and hundreds of thousands of websites around the world using a .CLUB domain. So, really, when we celebrate our birthday each year, we are really celebrating YOU!!! We appreciate and are most grateful for every one of our partners, team members present and past, industry friends, and especially EVERYONE who has registered a .CLUB domain name. We’d have nothing to celebrate if it were not for your support over the years. Thank you!!!
We hope you enjoy the little birthday video above. Below are some highlights we are very proud of, and below the infographic is a short video of the very moment .CLUB went live 5 years ago, with our founder and CEO Colin ringing the bell at GoDaddy’s office in Arizona. We look forward to many more birthday celebrations ahead as more and more of you continue to join the .CLUB! Thank YOU!
