November 25, 2016 The new gTLD .blog entered into general availability on November 21 2016 and is already hugely successful with more than 23 000 registrations in less than a week.
The extension was launched in in the August 18th 2016 Sunrise and passed through the Landrush period from November 2nd to November 9th 2016 without noticeable success. The opening of the general availability period has led to a huge increase in registrations of this new gTLD.
This gTLD is appealing for trademark owners who wish to develop a close relationship with their customers. The .blog extension is especially popular with private individuals and professionals who wish to develop an area of personal expression on the web and thus improve their visibility.
The famous blog provider Wordpress.com, also inventor of the eponymous open-source CMS (Content Management System) has for its part made it possible for its users to register a .blog domain name during the creation of a blog on its platform. In view of its popularity, it is likely that the .blog extension will soon become a new standard for all blog owners, individuals as well as professionals.
You can now register your own .blog at IP Twins by contacting your usual account manager or by emailing us at email@example.com.
