    I saw the scientific name drop from WHO less than an hour ago.
    It seems like people spell it with and without the dash (COVID-19).
    There are many registrations already. Seeing as some of the people registering it are probably on here, let's have a thread about it.

    What do you think the prices will be like for the various domains?
    Do you think it will matter with including the dash or not?
    Do you think this official name will actually be used by the public?

    .com, .co, .co.uk, org, net, .de, .eu, .news, .tech, .health and many others have of course already been snapped up.

    Congratulations to the one who got the .com! Enjoy your new yacht! :cigar:

    Total waste of money, nobody will buy these names. We saw the same with sars, ebola, bird flu etc etc, the virus will be gone soon and the names just expire.

    Did you ever hear anyone mention SARS-CoV 😉🙈

    Cool. Just as .com was first domain extension.

    The keywords that came out first were

    Coronavirus
    And
    NCOV

    If you Google these, you will see hundreds of millions of results for each.

    No doubt COVID19 will trend.

    But keep in mind. When news will talk about

    COVID19

    The news will always go like this

    COVID19, the Coronavirus or ncov.
    Coronavirus or NCOV or COVID19 blah blah blah.

    It's like Baby Yoda. They say Disney will announce baby Yoda's name soon.

    Does that mean the keyword that's trended these past months (Baby Yoda) will lose value?

    Don't think so. With all the mentions on millions of websites? The SEO value of BABYYODA.COM won't lose.

    Congrats of registrant of COVID19.com

    I think Coronavirus will have staying power as a keyword because it was first.

    If anything it will pull up searches for 2019ncov and ncov and COVID19

    Edit: whoever comes up with the vaccine for this will want COVID19.com or Covid-19.com

    The WHO really should trademark terms before they let the cat out the bag. At least they can make extra money licensing the term.

    Will changing the name of White House to Blue House make any difference and these are days Google has autocorrect option and throws up the main synonyms results though there was a change in previous name.

    After the disease swallowed more than 50,000 people and officially death count has crossed 1000 plus and spread to more than dozen countries, the sleeping stalwarts at WHO are focused more on renaming the disease...God Save Earth

    I will throw in some Trademark bad news here.

    COVID is the "root" of Covid19 or Covid-19.

    Covid.com has been registered since 1997-01-21

    and it is developed.

    Covid Inc. looks like it sells wiring and cables for networking.

    There are no trademarks for the mark "Covid" but as someone who has been schooled numerous times on here by the "experts".

    let me regurgitate.


    Although there is no Trademark for "Covid" the owner of Covid.com has non-registered rights on the mark because it is first to market.

    Although the niches would be different. Covid19 has nothing to do with wiring or cables.

    So I guess it's "safe" to reg Covid19 domains?

    You are correct. I have ThePandemic and FluReady both in king and have had very few inquires over the 14+ years each has been registered. I would have thought those two are more generic and maybe had a wider audience.

    The only way to profit from regs like these is to immediately develop and add value to visitors. Capture emails, send them news/info as it becomes available. Although we never know how many domains truly sell privately, I can confidently say none of these will sell.

    “As a recent example, moments before the World Health Organization announced the official name of the coronavirus, Namecheap registered the name (covid-19.com) to a domain name speculator, presumably unassociated with the public health mission of the WHO.”
