Join the .CLUB: Benefits of This Brand New Domain

.CLUB New gTLD
The brand new .CLUB extension is set to launch next Wednesday, May 7th. It’s not too late to pre-order your .CLUB domain and ensure that your order is submitted the second this extension becomes available. The cost is only $29/year.

Thrive Online with .CLUB

.CLUB is a unique domain that gives organizations the opportunity to succeed online. In the bygone days, your only options for a domain names were with .COM and .ORG. However the chances of getting the domain you wanted were slim to none since many premium names are long gone. That’s no longer the case with the introduction of .CLUB and hundreds of other new domains. With .CLUB, you no longer have to settle for second best.

Grow Your Group

If you have a group of any type, .CLUB is a great domain for you. Whether you run a sports club, fan club or political network, the .CLUB domain can work for you. Not only that, but corporate entities with exclusive programs to interested customers. For example, a credit card company can use this domain to share information with customers about special offers and rewards programs

Pre-Order Now

With .CLUB launching in about a week, it’s not too late to submit your pre-order for this domain. Let us explain how this works: Once an extension is set to launch, you can confirm reservation for a specific domain by making a binding pre-order. Pre-ordering a domain means you agree to pay its registration fee in the event of a successful registration, and we agree to submit that domain for registration on its go-live date for you. If for any reason we can’t register your domain, you won’t owe the registration fee.

You can pre-order your .CLUB domain by clicking here.

Another Big Win for New gTLDs at United Domains

April showers bring May flowers, and every week brings a slew of new domain extensions. It’s been a whirlwind week of domain extension releases here at United Domains.  This week, we saw three separate new domain extension launches.  Tuesday brought us .BUZZ ($39.00), .GIFT ($29.00), .LINK ($19.00), .GUITARS ($39.00), .PICS ($19.00), and .PHOTO ($29.00).

On Wednesday, it was all about .MARKETING ($29.00) and .HOLIDAY ($39.00).

And finally, earlier today, .ONL ($39.00) was finally, well, online.

Three launches in the span of a three-day period. It’s got to be some kind of record.

Speaking of records, we wanted to take a moment to mention one we’re proud of: our consistent track record for successfully converting pre-ordered domain names into successful domain registrations. Just as we’ve done every week since the first new domain extensions in Februrary 2014, we have once again registered over 70% of all pre-orders we collected from our customers.

And all those domain names add up. United Domains ranks as a global leader in new domain extensions. In terms of worldwide registrations, we are ranked as one of the top registrars for new domain extensions. Of course, we couldn’t rank as anything at all without the support of our amazing customers.

So, from all of us at United Domains, thanks for placing your trust in us for yet another exciting week of domain launches.

We’re glad to end the last few days on a high note, and ready to go at it again next week, when we’ll be releasing .CODES ($49.00/year), .FARM, ($39.00), and the Spanish-speaking-focused .VIAJES ($49.00).

See you then.

Keeping A Good Thing Going: Over 70% Success For Pre-Ordered Domains!

From the very beginning, United Domains has believed in new domains and the new opportunities they bring. New small business owners in need of a name that will stick with new customers and help to build their base, Casual users hoping to share their passion with the help of a content-oriented name, and anyone who wants their domain name to say more — new domain names create new possibilities of online expression for everyone. Those are the kinds of opportunities we’ve believed in since day one, and the opportunities we are committed to helping our customers reach for themselves.

That’s why we couldn’t be more thrilled at the outcome of today’s new domain extension release. In the wake of today’s launch of .HOUSE ($49.00/year), .COFFEE ($39.00/year), .FLORIST ($49.00/year), .INTERNATIONAL ($19.00/year), and .SOLAR ($49.00/year), we saw that our tremendous track record for successfully registering domain pre-orders is staying strong. Once again, over 70% of all domains pre-ordered for today’s launch were successfully registered to United Domains customers.

New domain extensions are changing the face of the Internet one gTLD at a time, and they’ve only just begun. Next week will see the arrival of .PICS ($19.00/year), .PHOTO ($29.00/year), .BUZZ ($39.00/year), .GIFT ($29.00/year), and a slew of other extensions. Visit our homepage to see them all for yourself and prepare your binding pre-orders. New domains mean new opportunities. Let us help you discover yours.

Pre-Registration, Pre-Ordering, and Premium Domains: What Are They?

If you’re reading this blog, there’s a good chance you have an interest in new domain extensions. Maybe you’re looking to rebrand your blog, or get your business’ website off on the right foot with a meaningful, memorable name. Maybe you’re a domain investor looking to diversify your portfolio. Whatever interests you about new gTLDs, it helps to be prepared for your domain’s arrival, and United Domains wants to help you do just that.

United Domains offers three distinct phases of domain ordering: free pre-registration for domains with extensions to be released in the next three to twelve months, binding pre-order for domain extensions launching in the next few weeks, and live registration for extensions available right now. 

Knowing the difference between the three stages can make all the difference between scoring the domain you want and missing out. But just what are those differences, and what do you need to know to make the most of your pre-registration? We’ll explain.

Free Pre-Registration (For Domain Extensions Being Released in 3-12 Months)
New extensions are launching every week, but most are still months away from their release. Domain extensions in this category do not have an official price or release date. If you’re interested in a domain that’s still a ways off, you can pre-register it for free with United Domains.

Pre-registering a domain is free and completely non-binding, which means you pay nothing and have no obligation to register the domain. Pre-registering enters your domain into United Domains’ database. As long as the domain is pre-registered to you, no other United Domains customer can pre-register it for themselves.

Binding Pre-Order (For Domain Extensions Being Released In The Upcoming Weeks)
Once a domain extension’s price and go-live date are revealed, you can confirm domains with that extension for binding pre-order. Pre-ordering a domain means you agree to pay its registration fee in the event of a successful registration, and we agree to submit that domain for registration on its go-live date for you.

If a domain you have pre-registered becomes available for pre-order, you will receive an email from us letting you know that the time has come to confirm your pre-order if you wish. You will then be able to confirm your pre-registration as a binding pre-order. If you take no action to confirm a pre-registration as a binding pre-order, that pre-registration will be deleted from your account automatically before its extension’s go-live date.

If you don’t have a domain pre-registered in your account already, you can still submit a binding pre-order. Simply search the domain you’re interested in the search bar found at www.uniteddomains.com.

Live Registration (For Domain Extensions Available Now)
This category is pretty self-explanatory. You can register these domains now!

Premium Domains: Why The Higher Cost?
You may have noticed that certain domains available for pre-order or live registration have a higher price than other domains with that extension. This is because the registry for those domains has classified them as premium domains. These domains tend to command be shorter, more easily memorable, and made up of simple keywords and search terms. For that reason, they often command a higher value in the domain aftermarket and are highly sought after. A premium domain can make a terrific addition to your portfolio.

Because premium domains are classified and priced by their respective registries, United Domains must price and classify them in turn. The premium price for registering a premium domain is the same from year to year, so it will cost the same amount to renew a premium domains registration as it did to register.
