.CLUB Domain Name Extension Now Available for General Registration

GoDaddy, the world’s largest technology provider dedicated to small businesses, is helping customers find the right name for their business with the newest generic Top Level Domain (gTLD), .CLUB. As a word that translates across many languages, the .CLUB domain name extension brings immediately recognizable meaning and marketing value to names around the world.

There are millions of established clubs throughout the world, ranging from social clubs to health clubs, from yacht clubs to night clubs - making .CLUB one of the most versatile, globally relevant domain name extensions available. Premium names such as MakeUp.CLUB and Beauty.CLUB have already been purchased by MaryKay Cosmetics, a trusted global name in skin care.

“The new domain extensions were created to give individuals, businesses and organizations a way to create personalized experiences through easy-to-remember, relevant domain names,” said GoDaddy Senior Vice President and General Manager Domains Mike McLaughlin. “If you think about how many different clubs are out there – car clubs, ‘club’ sports, ‘of-the-month’ clubs – the list goes on and on. And with dot-CLUB launching today, there are plenty of opportunities for premium names.”

New domain extensions like .CLUB provide unique alternatives to traditional extensions, expanding the range of choices and creating new domain names to better identify websites based on their focus or specialty. The .CLUB domain also offers an enhanced and personalized presence on platforms like Facebook, Google, Yahoo! and LinkedIn, by creating a direct link to the group’s dedicated page.

“As the largest domain registrar in the world, GoDaddy is an essential partner in making this general availability launch of dot-CLUB a success,” said .CLUB Founder, Chairman and CEO Colin Campbell. “We consider dot-CLUB the one-stop shop for clubs of all sizes to secure a great domain, so we’re looking to connect this widely popular domain with consumers and brands everywhere.”
