Radix Predicts 15,000+ .Online Registrations at Launch

Radix sent out a press release touting its .Online new gTLD domain extension. The company reported that there were 775 registrations during the Sunrise period. It’s email stated that this figure is strong, and it ranks as #6 behind .Porn, .Adult, .Sucks, .Brussels, and .Melbourne.

The email also made a pretty bold prediction. According to the accompanying press release I was sent, Sandeep Ramchandani, Business Head at Radix stated, “We expect to start off with at least 15,000 registrations at launch and would love to break .club’s launch record!

I can see .Online being a solid producer for Radix. According to a DomainTools search I did today, there seem to be many companies that use “online” at the end of their domain name, and this could be appealing to them either as a defensive measure or to shorten their url. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Radix hit their 15,000 number. One knock on the extension is the length. Obviously, the number of characters is more than double that of .com.

Radix reported that .online domain names are available for Early Access Phase (EAP) and General Availability (GA) pre-registrations. The news release noted that registrars such as GoDaddy, Domain.com, 1&1, 1Api, Name.com, 101Domain, United-Domains, and eNom are selling .online domain names. The EAP for .online starts on August 19th, and General Availability is set to begin on August 26th.
