With our old website and domain partner, we used to offer just .COM, .ORG, .NET, .INFO, .BIZ, .WS, .CC, and .TV domain registrations. Those TLDs were available via the new website when we launched it yesterday.
Today, I’m happy to announce the immediate availability of eight new TLDs for registration:
This brings the total number of TLDs available for registration to 16. We’ve still got a very long list (a couple hundred!) of TLDs that we need to sort through, price, and get added to the system. Pricing has been one of the trickier pieces of this task, and has been something of a sticking point for us, as each TLD establishes their base pricing, which can vary wildly from TLD to TLD. After much deliberation, benchmarking, and what-if’ing, I believe we have finally settled on a pricing process for domains that is equitable, sustainable, and fair to all parties. This pricing system is going to be the topic of a separate blog posting a little later. For right now lets just enjoy the fact that we have such a wide variety of options available, and we’ll get them rolled out as quickly as possible.
