Glasgow, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 7 May 2014
A new Internet domain name extension targeted at sports businesses and organisations has gone on general release.
The new generic Top-Level Domain name (gTLD) .Club is expected to be one of the most popular domain name extensions among nearly one thousand gTLDs being issued this year by ICANN, the international organisation that regulates domain names, as part of a drive to open up competition and opportunity on the Internet.
ICANN accredited UK domain name provider Easyspace, one of the UK’s leading domain name registrar and web hosting companies, is offering .Club on a first come first served basis.
Sarah Haran, managing director of Easyspace, said: “Dot Club is the ultimate social domain name for sports and leisure organisations. If you run a football club, rugby club, or athletics club using this shorter and more specific domain name is the ideal way to bring your supporters together online.”
West Ham Football Club is one of the high profile sports organisations already embracing the new gTLDs. The Premier League Club has gone live with a new .London domain in order to associate itself more closely with the UK’s capital city.
