.CLUB Partners with RightOfTheDot.com for “Category Killer” Premium & Founder Program Domain Sales and Strategy

Posted on the 14 November 2013 by Worldwide @thedomains

Although I rarely write about projects I’m personally working on, I’m delighted to announced that .CLUB Domains, LLC, the company formed to own and operate the new “.CLUB” generic top-level domain name (gTLD), has partnered with Internet consulting and advisement firm RightOfTheDot, LLC to help facilitate and manage the release, placement and auction of certain super premium and Founder .CLUB domain names.

Super premium names may include such “category killers” as a.club, e.club, 888.club, chess.club, poker.club, insurance.club, golf.club, country.club, wine.club and car.club, just to names a few of the natural terms on the left of the dot that go perfectly with the right of the dot.

Premium sales of .Club domain names are expected to begin in early 2014, after companies have had a chance to secure trademark names through a sunrise period.

As most of you know, the publisher and editor of TheDomains.com,  Michael Berkens, is a Director, Partner and Founder of RightoftheDot.com.

New web addresses with the .CLUB extension are expected to be among the most popular new gTLDs to hit the market in early 2014, and is ranked in the top 30 of all new gTLD pre-reservations on 1and1.com which has received over 4 Million pre-reservations

The word “CLUB” is recognized in nearly every language and appeals to many different categories of people, including membership organizations, affinity groups, loyalty clubs, athletic organizations, country clubs, social clubs and many more.

“The word `club’ is a great choice for a web extension because it’s recognizable, short, memorable and meaningful, which are all vital components for websites that want to attract visitors and create communities,” said Monte Cahn, co-founder and president of Right of the Dot, LLC. “We expect tremendous interest around .CLUB from all over the world and are excited to be part of the launch.”

RightOfTheDot, LLC was founded in 2010 by two well known domain industry veterans, Monte Cahn and Michael H. Berkens, Esq. who have a combined 29 years of domain industry experience and have participated in more than $350,000,000 in domain sales.

Monte has advised and assisted in launching many of the existing 22 gTLDs, and pioneered many domain industry products and services such as: domain appraisals & escrow; live and online domain auctions; WHOIS privacy; and domain theft protection.

“No firm has more experience, network and knowledge to showcase some of our top names,” said Colin Campbell, chairman and CEO of .CLUB Domains.…
