    Agreed. Even as the second cctld of the USA, with .com being the first one ;), .us should be doing much better and all it needs is a little presentation and marketing.

    People go nuts of Columbia or some island extensions, while .us provides businesses with something those cannot provide: trust and memorability. People here in the USA are conditioned to remember .us extension as lots of government organizations, small businesses etc. are on .US. They also don't experience much scam with .us, as it requires residency.

    Zoom.us might be doing the greatest service though, by using .us and even forwarding .com to it.

    Couldnt agree more. I know some investors have waited and waited, then sold...but I really believe long term, .us holds huge promise. Particularly for quality dictionary words.

    Few months back I bought a group of 10 or 15 .us for $100. Put them on Afternic and one sold right away for 500 or 800 bucks. I think .us looks bright. GD might even help with consumers.

    GD might help hugely, might hamper it. With multibillion dollar company, you don't really know the plan with the acquisition until later. It could be to grow, to benefit themselves in other areas, or just using it as a cash cow without any incentive to change.

    How's this for a 2 word .us ?

    E/x/o/t/i/c/C/a/r/s .US

    Just the rental business alone in the "US" is huge...

    Plenty of endusers big and small

    recent GD CL score :)

    Thank You

    I did some diggin before making the purchase just to be sure given it is a 2 word cc

    NameDroppers listed 589 names ending with this name

    Countless Car Compaines Marketing I see all the time

    then I notice the Largest Rental Company- Enterprise - has its own Sub Domain Section strictly for the said 2-words
    https://exoticcars.enterprise.com/en/home.html

    huge Outbound potential on this one though letting them come forward is still a stronger position. which is why I think I'll just do soft ads on LinkedIN so they become "aware" it's available :)

    You could have bought jennie.us for $65 on Namepros a few weeks ago.
    I almost bought it because Jennie is the name of one of the most popular
    Blackpink members. Now it is for sale for $10,000. Did we miss out?

    domain digital marketing institute. us handreg highest offer is €500 on dan. com
    i am not sure if i will sell this at this price. i really dont want to sell but maybe at the right price i might.
    any advices inputs please ?

    both are genuine offers as i found out more about who sent the offers from their first and last name. one is artist into web design. second person is ppc expert for saas companies.
