Uniregistry is to massively increase the price of some of its under-performing new gTLDs in an effort to keep them afloat. Sixteen TLDs from the company’s portfolio of 27 will see price increases of up to 3,000% starting September 8, CEO Frank Schilling confirmed to DI today. “We need more revenue from these strings, especially […]

.sexy may be blocked in Iran

Some networks in Iran appear to be systematically blocking Uniregistry’s .sexy gTLD. That’s one of the conclusions of a slightly odd experiment commissioned by ICANN. The newly published An Analysis of New gTLD Universal Acceptance was conducted by APNIC Labs. The idea was to figure out whether there are any issues with new gTLDs on […]

.SEXY & .TATTOO Go Live…Now If I Could Just Buy One

I was excited about .SEXY and .TATTOO going live today. While I don’t think either is worth spending thousands of dollars on there are a few names in each I’d like.

Here’s why registrars are boycotting .sexy

Will .sexy and .tattoo trip on the starting blocks today due to registrars’ fears about competition and Whois privacy? Uniregistry went into general availability at 1600 UTC today with the two new gTLDs — its first to market — but it did so without the support of some of the biggest registrars. Go Daddy — […]

.Tattoo and .sexy enter general availability tomorrow, although relatively few registrars are offering the domain names. Frank Schilling’s first two top level domain names, .tattoo and .sexy, enter general availability tomorrow at 11 am EST. Judging from registrar support so far, Uniregistry’s first two domains are going to be a bit hampered. That may be […]

areyou.sexy? youare.sexy? If you’re thinking about trying to bag these names when Uniregistry takes .sexy into general availability next week, you’re out of luck — they’re among almost 100 registry-reserved names.
