Promote Your New gTLD on a NC License Plate

Companies have been spending quite a bit of money on promoting their domain registries. Frankly, with all of the domain names available and with the number of forthcoming extensions, they really need to spend marketing dollars to promote their extensions.

Abdu Tarabichi of Domainsville is offering new gTLD registry operators a unique way to let people know about their new domain name extensions. According to a tweet he just posted, he will offer up his North Carolina license plate as a medium to promote a gTLD registry. In the photo he shared on Twitter, the registry is being promoted as an example. The cost for this promotion is $399 a year, and interested companies can connect with him via Twitter.

This is certainly a unique way for a company to market its extension, although it would probably be confusing to others in the short term. Perhaps he can also offer a license plate frame as part of the deal, and that could be used to give more information or an illustration of what the extension means and how it can be used.

    • LMAO! $399 a year for one plate? Think about it, for $400 you can have any GTLD or domain painted on your car with an awesome graphic, Or you can have bumper stickers made and put them on all your cars. As for the yearly fee anyway, they wont have to renew it because after the first year, the GTLD will have already burned out.

      Sorry to say, but this is the most boneheaded idea I’ve heard in a long time.
