Perfect Usage of a .Christmas Domain


There are a few new domain name extensions I don't totally understand. Among them is .Christmas, a domain name extension operated by Uniregistry. I didn't really understand why people would buy a domain name based on a holiday. This morning, my perspective changed a bit.

Michele Neylon, CEO of Blacknight Internet Solutions, sent his annual Christmas card/email this morning. In the email, he referenced his online Christmas card, which can be found at Michele.christmas (previously WhiteChristmas.me). When I received that, .Christmas clicked for me.

During the past week or so, my wife and I have received a ton of Christmas and holiday postcards from friends and family. We've always been a bit slow with cards like this, and most of the time it doesn't end up happening. It gets to the final days and we can either do a last minute card and pay extra for speedy shipping, or we can just skip it like usual. With a .Christmas domain name, it is faster to setup and less expensive than mailing a holiday card, especially when compared to → Read More

Uniregistry Testing New Landing Page Designs? (Updated)


My graduate degree is in Direct & Interactive Marketing, and one of the things we were taught is to test everything. Direct marketers test the offer, the design of marketing materials, and the content within the marketing materials. In my opinion, testing is very important.

This morning, I stumbled upon a new Uniregistry landing page that I thought I would share. I don't visit many parked pages, but I was searching for domain names and I noticed what appears to be a new Uniregistry landing page design:


As you can see, the colors are much darker than the current "mountains" landing page. I shared an image of one of my parked pages so you can see how it currently looks: (more…) → Read More

Did You Buy Any of the Released Uniregistry Domain Names?


Yesterday, I wrote about Uniregistry releasing 3.5 million domain names for people to register. I am not really much of an investor in the new domain names besides a handful of them, so I did not register any of these domain names.

I know there are people who are investors in the new domain names, and I am curious if anyone was willing to share the names they registered yesterday. I briefly used the search tool that Uniregistry released in conjunction with the news, but I did really use it enough to comment about it.

It would be interesting to see what types of names became available and what types of names readers thought were valuable enough to register. Feel free to share your new registrations below so I (and other readers) can see the types of domain names that were purchased after the names were released. → Read More
