maybe those gtlds unprofitable and Godaddy saving the industry?
sorry for all the people who own .club
luckily nobody owns any .design domains
I have no .club no .design but thank you for the info.
Hahahaha cashed out after Clubhouse promos
In all seriousness, another Vertical acquisition
Went Horizontal (Uniregistry, direct competitor)
Vertical (Neustar, indirect Registry)and now the MMX Registry best known .club. ,design etc. .Club squeezed havin same name “Clubhouse”
This means your domain can be less suggested on GD search result in the future. Prepare your mind, keyboard and mouse...
I may have one or two.
Good acquisition... For them . Not a fan of mmX extensions but owning them fits the long game GD is playing.
They probably won't, but it'd be cool if they bring down pricing significantly.
“Upon close of the acquisitions, GoDaddy Registry will own, manage or operate more than 240 top-level domain extensions, with more than 14 million domain names under management.”
Had not expected this move by GD. Wonder if they will bid in the Uni extension auctions this month. Club must have gone for a lot - not disclosed yet,
Thanks for posting story, @SNJV .
For reference here is list of MMX extensions with registration numbers. The most registered are .work and .vip.
My guess is renewal prices will be going up in the near future....
Yes, that's a USP of GD
I bet Godaddy will take over .com from Verisign
Sooo: What will this mean for Porkbun, ‘a Top Level Design company’*?
*’Top Level Design LLC ... the proud registry for the .design ... TLD. We also provide registrar services through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Porkbun LLC.’
GD is loot company, their USP is to loot customers money by using silly bad tactics and malpractices. If ( .com) takeover by GD then I will stop investing in domain
Mostly a pitiful bunch of NGTLD's. They are probably happy to be relieved of this burden.
I knew that .design and Porkbun had a relationship, but did not realize Porkbun were subsidiary - would have assumed it other way around.
Porkbun is a well liked registrar with smooth operation and great prices. I hope there are no changes coming. Tagging a rep at Porkbun for confirmation of situation. @SlackJawedYokel
probably realize their their standard business model is failing due to their shenanigans.
personally, i think its awful for everybody that godaddy is doing this and controls so much. godaddys reputation is nonexistent nowadays
porkbun is one of my favs.
who is top level design llc? what else do they own? are they affiliated with godaddy?!?!
Clubhouse has responded saying they have not experienced a breach of their systems and said that the data is already publicly available and that it can be accessed via their API which raises some questions about the privacy stance of the company allowing for anyone to gather even public profile information on a mass scale. We have sent some follow up questions regarding their API policy and will update when we have more information.
Since GoGreedy has 29.65% market share of .com. Nothing is impossible
what a shame. somebody needs to shake those people a bit more.
Yes nothing is impossible, but if GD takeovers (.com) then they will play a big game with customers and will show their real colors of malpractices. So it is always better that some other registrar companies must pull up their socks and compete with GD otherwise monopoly will kill domain investors from (.com)
Thanks for the tag, Bob. Sorry for the delay, I've been away on "vacation". It's true, Porkbun is owned by Top Level Design but we've always operated independently so there will be no changes whatsoever. The only thing being sold is the .design TLD, no other part of the business. As for which is a subsidiary of what, the registry business actually came first, then when I came on board we were like "Hey, let's build a registrar!", and so we did
