    Hey Folks

    Not sure if I'm understanding this correctly but I got a mail form Uniregistry few minutes ago and this is their price break down for .store per-launch:

    Pricing schedule
    Day 1 - June 7th 16:00 UTC - $27,500 + registration price*
    Day 2 - June 8th 16:00 UTC - $11,000 + registration price*
    Day 3 - June 9th 16:00 UTC - $2,750 + registration price*
    Day 4 - June 10th 16:00 UTC - $1,045 + registration price*
    Day 5 - June 11th 16:00 UTC - $550 + registration price*
    Day 6 - June 12th 16:00 UTC - $275 + registration price*
    Day 7 - June 13th 16:00 UTC - $275 + registration price*


    Now am I missing something here or what?

    You are missing the huge line people will stand in to register a .store domain for $27,500 :laugh:

    Comes with risk as renewal fees are a little high but it will proberly come down in time to sustain demand.

    This is probably the best structure for gtlds, if it would involve just the registration price with standard renewals comparable to .com prices.

    If someone really wants a super prem .store, he'll pay 27K, if not, he'll risk and wait if it goes to 11K through $275.

    Donuts is the only registry with fair pricing model and provide opportunity for domainers.

    $27,000 is a great way to target TM holders in bad faith. Glad for them that they are not selling names like PlaystationStore.com because they would get an UDRP + maybe COURT..............

    Yeah, a lot of the stuff they pull off just seems almost counterintuitive. It must be (to an extent) working for them, though... Something to consider.

    I think most of the new ngTLD domains can be also explained by the domain .sucks. Sometime you have to get yourname.sucks, so the others don't get it.
    Maybe spent 250$ in ransom for a .sucks or ngTLD domain.

    Probably the rationale behind most ngTLDs is: "You have to protect your brand, so the first 5000 domains are guaranteed! Let's launch a new ngTLD."

    You only need a .com to properly protect a world wide brand ..... plus the local cctld of your country is also handy
