Premium names such as MakeUp.CLUB and Beauty.CLUB have already been purchased by MaryKay Cosmetics, a trusted global name in skin care.

And with dot-CLUB launching today, there are plenty of opportunities for premium names.”
New domain extensions like .CLUB provide unique alternatives to traditional extensions, expanding the range of choices and creating new domain names to better identify websites based on their focus or specialty.
