Which domains the top 10 domain registrars promote

April 30, 2012.co, .com, .net, Domain Registrars, Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on Which domains the top 10 domain registrars promote

.co is a favorite among non-VeriSign domains.

Registrars have many options when it comes to which top level domains to promote to customers. Sometimes this is based purely on demand calculations. In other instances domain registries strike deals with domain registrars to give them premium shelf space or promotion on their home pages.

I just checked the top 10 domain registrars. These results are for either the drop down box in their domain search function or the results page when you search. Excluded are reseller-only registrars that don’t have a consumer facing site. I’ve also excluded MelbourneIT because they seem to be having web site problems right now.

GoDaddy

.com
.co
.info
.net
.org

(notably, .me, which is backed by GoDaddy is #6)

eNom

.co
.com
.net
.org
.info

Tucows (Hover)

.com
.net
.info
.co
Then usually shows another variant of .com

Network Solutions

.com
.net
.co
.org
.biz

1 and 1

.com
.co
.net
.org
.us (I suspect this varies depending on your location)

Register.com

.com
.co
.net
.org
.xxx

Moniker

.co
.com
.org
.net
.asia

Jon Stewart Reluctantly Settles for .Net, Struggles with Comptroller

November 1, 2009.net, Domaining, Domainnamewire, john stewart, UncategorizedComments Off on Jon Stewart Reluctantly Settles for .Net, Struggles with Comptroller

Two Daily Show clips related to domain names (Ok, so one’s a stretch).

Last week on the Daily Show Jon Stewart discussed net neutrality. In the story, he also poked fun at domain names, saying he registered a .net because he couldn’t get the .com. He repeated it several times during the story. I can’t repeat the made up domain he mentions in the video, but he emphasized .net. “I was going to have that .com but it was already taken, so I got dot net.”

Later in the week he discussed Michael Bloomberg’s opponent in the Mayoral election. It really doesn’t have much to do with domain names, except for me personally. Bloomberg’s opponent was the former comptroller of New York City, and I own the domain name Comptroller.com. So Jon, if you really want to know what a comptroller is, visit Comptroller.com. And if any politicians running for comptroller want a great domain name for their campaign, I’m happy to lease comptroller to them.
