The New .CLUB Domain Extension Now Available At Webnames.ca

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/10/14 -- Webnames.ca, Canada's original domain registrar and a leading provider of web solutions, is pleased to announce that registration of the new .CLUB generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) extension is now open.

The .CLUB gTLDs Sunrise Phase, a priority registration period for trademark owners, has just ended and .CLUB is already showing signs that it will be one of the most popular domain extensions being launched. Prior to its launch, .CLUB has consistently been ranked as one of the most popular new gTLDs.

".CLUB web addresses have proven to be in high demand, both in terms of pre-registration numbers and during our successful Sunrise Period, which showed applicants from a wide variety of industries, including high-profile sports teams, auto manufacturers, major consumer and luxury brands, private clubs and more," said Colin Campbell, CEO of .CLUB Domains, LLC. "The word 'club' is recognized and has meaning all over the world, no matter what language or alphabet, so it makes sense that organizations and individuals see its value from a branding, marketing and affinity perspective."

"We're excited to see how businesses and organizations will adopt .CLUB into their online strategies," said Cybele Negris, CEO and Co-Founder of Webnames.ca. "Besides the obvious sports clubs or night clubs that a .CLUB domain would be relevant to, I can see that every business with a loyalty program would want a .CLUB domain like "www.Webnames.club". There are also numerous student clubs, hobby clubs and non-profit clubs around the world that will start adopting this domain as their way of communicating with club members."

Webnames.ca, is now accepting registrations for the .CLUB Domain's Landrush Phase, an early access period open to anyone and allows registrants to essentially jump the line for a slightly higher price.

"For trademark holders that weren't able to secure their brands during the Sunrise Phase and businesses that want to secure their brands sooner rather than later, the Landrush Period is your best bet to get the .CLUB name you want," said Ms. Negris.

Individuals, organizations and businesses that want to register a .CLUB domain name during the regular General Availability Phase, which starts May 7, 2014 can also pre-order today. Webnames.ca's pre-order system will take orders and submit them the moment the Registry opens, to increase customers' chances of securing the .CLUB domain names that they want.
