ChatRoulette Launches New Services Without Domain Names

More domain name issues for ChatRoulette.

ChatRoulette.com has become somewhat of a hot button topic in domainer circles thanks to the CamRoulette.com saga. So it’s interesting to see a new set of features from ChatRoulette with domain implications.

First, the company launched ChannelRoulette and LocalRoulette. The site doesn’t own the corresponding domain names. ChannelRoulette.com was registered by a Florida man in March; LocalRoulette.com was registered in January 2009.

Second, the so-called channels will be at subdomains of ChatRoulette.com. For example, a channel could be austin.chatroulette.com. Given the immense amount of traffic this web site gets, don’t be surprised to see quite a bit of missing-dot typo traffic to the popular channels. For example, austinchatroulette.com.

While we’re on the topic, the CamRoulette.com saga continues. A pre-trial hearing has been called between the original registrant of the domain and the party that claims it had a deal to purchase it. Meanwhile, the buyer of CamRoulette.com has filed a trademark application for CamRoulette.com.
