    Good evening Domainers,

    Has anyone done anything with the .Direct domains? Bought, developed, or sold? It just seems to be a great outlet for retailing products.

    Hello,

    I have bought these:

    - Dating .direct
    - Euro .direct
    - Call .direct
    - Inter .direct
    - Clean .direct
    - Korea .direct
    - School .direct
    - Team .direct
    - Agent .direct
    - Tattoo .direct

    All are just up for sale. Nothing developed, at least yet. I've not sold any yet, but have had offers on "Korea" and "School".

    I also have bought these and have recently put some of them up for sale. Nothing developed, and have not sold any yet.

    1.Direct
    Bra.direct
    charity.direct
    cigarette.direct
    electric.direct
    free.direct
    gas.direct
    ins.direct
    music.direct
    petroleum.direct
    poker.direct
    power.direct

    Let's hope some of our domains get some significant sales to gain some recognition for the extension.

    Good luck and thank you for your input.

    Here is some more interesting information on the number of developed sites per extension. What I find very promising about this information is that the DIRECT extension already has more developed sites than extensions like BUSINESS, GLOBAL and INTERNATIONAL. This is without any hype what so ever on the DIRECT extension(Well besides myself. LOL). As awareness grows development should grow rapidly. To summarize, this extension just makes sense..

    BUSINESS: 305,000
    CENTER: 946,000
    DIRECT: 491,000
    DIRECTORY: 633,000
    GLOBAL: 436,000
    INTERNATIONAL: 446,000
    LOL: 595,000
    NEWS: 766,000.

    I got this information from google. Here is an link for the global extension numbers, direct link was in my previous post.

    https://www.google.com/#q="site:.business"

    Thanks Fellas. Submitted enough domains to Brandroot and Brandbucket.com, so I figured I would list the other rejected domains on my own marketplace.

    I only got two.
    Brand.direct
    Insure.direct

    I think Dating .direct is a $36 premium and all the rest are non-premiums.

    direct(.)dating - RIGHT
    dating(.)direct - WRONG

    Yeah, a potential generic one that makes it even better. I found no trademarks on it. It could even be MY brand. ;)

    Edit: Found one in Europe for the whole phrase combined. However this is a domain name put together with two extremely generic words. So far, no one have lost such in a UDRP, as far as I know. Also, we are a Asian company, with no intention whatsoever to compete with any european dating sites.

    Robotics direct is (could be) a brand

    Are there even 500,000 .direct names registered? I don't think the search you are using is giving you the info you think it is giving you.

    I like .direct, don't get me wrong but half a million developed sites using .direct? I'm pretty sure that is not correct, to be direct.
