Set of medical top level domains being released right now

biotech naming, scientific naming, naming medical products, naming healthcare productsI thought the sequencing of the release of new top level gTLD’s, as the domain extensions are properly called, was more random than I am seeing – but that might just be a coincidence. Regardless, if you are in the medical, healthcare, research or biotech fields this is the month to seriously consider picking up one of these domains to supplement your key corporate offerings. Here is the release sequence thanks to United Domains:

Extension /Start of Live Reg /Price Per Year
.ski
08/09/2014 $59
.care
08/13/2014 $29
.clinic
08/13/2014 $49
.surgery
08/13/2014 $49
.dental
08/13/2014 $49
.hiphop
08/15/2014 $19
.investments
08/20/2014 $79
.fund
08/20/2014 $39
.tax
08/20/2014 $49
.bio
08/21/2014 $59
.hiv
08/22/2014 $199
.fitness
08/27/2014 $29
.hamburg
08/27/2014 $49

Ok I know .ski is usually not directly connected to medical – unless you are up in a ski resort area. But I couldn’t resist because of the accidental sequencing .And as for .hamburg? I am assuming there will be restrictions on registration, like proving you have an address in Hamburg, Germany. So don’t expect to see McDonalds.hamburg any time soon. If it is applicable to the hamburger industry, well then it may belong in this healthcare batch.

PS And my usual exhortation:  Don’t forget to check trademarks worldwide before you run out and claim domains!
