1st Day .Game Totals: 991 Domains; 337 Premiums @ $1,300 Wholesale

Posted on the 26 May 2016 by Worldwide @thedomains

.Game launched into general availability (GA) on Wednesday and received 991 domain name registrations in the 1st 24 hours of registration

The wholesale price set by the .game registry,  Uniregistry,  is $300 for a non-premium domain names for a registration and for each renewal.

Premium .Game  domain names, were all priced at $1,300 wholesale.  Premium domain names will renew annually at the premium price.

Domain registrars of course mark up the wholesale prices for regular and premium .Game domains making the retail cost closer to $400+ for a non-premium domain and over $1,400+ for a premium domain, per year.

According to a source in the industry 337 of the 991 domain names that were registered in the 1st 24 hours of GA were premium domains or just about 1/3 of all registrations.

Some of the domain names I had interest in were all premium domains.

Most of those premium domain .game domains were registered in the 1st 24 hours, including i.game, e.game, and video.game to name a few.

According to ntldstats.com as of the last report,  a total of 1,338 .game domain names have been registered including those registered in Sunrise by trademark holders and through the Early Access Program (EAP).

Interestingly 5 of the top 10 domain name registrars for .game are corporate brand protection registrars, including 2 of the top 3.

CSC is the largest domain registrar for .game and Mark Monitor is number 3.

Premium domain names are still premium priced even for trademark holders.
