There has been considerable discussing about registering COVID-19 and coronavirus domain names for resale. Bloomberg’s Quick Take just posted a video about 17 year old Avi Schiffmann, who created “one of the largest coronavirus-tracking websites in the world.” He did it using the nCoV2019.live domain name, which was registered on February 2, 2020.
I am sure new gTLD and ccTLD registries have been beneficiaries of the “run” on domain name registrations related to the coronavirus pandemic. People have often cited trust as a major factor in choosing a .com domain name for their business or website. I wonder if people who visit this popular .Live website notice that it uses an alternative domain extension, and if they do, I wonder if this is helping to educate the general public about non .com domain names.
Here’s the Bloomberg Quick Take video about nCoV2019.live and its 17 year old creator:
