    If you are not US citizen doesn't mean you can't register a .us
    Any can register a .us domain but must follow the rules
    What are the rules ? Very simple
    As non citizen must prove ( in case of a complaince Nexus ) that you have a connection with a US entity ( person or company ) with a simple bill ( sale of a domain for example )

    Thanks for replying. Sorry that doesnt make sense the bill of sale as a connection to us identity. You could buy into the venture for a one time payment of 1 penny, plus 1% of renewals. My plan is to build an established website and sell it to dncafe
    For me .us is a hack something us, would be used in that sense. What are current number .us registered?

    For a Nexus verification ( for them ) is enough that type of bill
    Of course if some one have a business , a partnership with a US entity ( like me ) much better

    .us i think are reg. close to 2 millions & rise

    According to Namebio ( official )

    In 2020
    Total sale number: 153
    Dollar volume : 166000 USD

    In 2021 until 25 June
    Total sale: 122
    Dollar volume: 153000 USD

    And we are only after 6 month
    This are official sales but personal i know at least 6-7 sales that are not indexed on Namebio including my sales of NeverGiveUp & GoodIdea = 4000 $
    So my guess is official & unofficial total sale are around or close to 200k

    There isn't much to it.

    I had it priced on Afternic and someone bought it. LOL

    I generally only have my non .COM priced on there at the moment, and not all of them.

    I have a BIN then put my floor at 90% of it. It sold between the floor and my asking price.

    As a long time fan of .US I am glad to see that it is getting some traction now amongst domainers and end users.

    @Ron Jackson ,

    Congrats on your new .US website,

    At one time I had a lot of .US domains, but due to having some health issues and becoming disabled I was not able to maintain a large portfolio, but I managed to hang on to a few of my best domains:

    Airline.Us
    Depression.US
    Church.US
    Mortgage.US

    Happy 4th of July to all the .US fans.

    I backordered several .US in the last few days, tied back to the 2002 original dates, on several venues.

    I didn't win many. Most went random places. I think there is an increase in competition over past years at the domainer level.

    This is following GD expired auctions recently that had a lot of interest for top brands/keywords.

    Not imo. I think .us really needs to be single words, or top quality two word terms.

    That is more like a solid brand, but the bar for .us is higher.
