The market for four TLDs is looking pretty good. As of March 6, 2017, four finance-related TLDs have been looking bearish (though that's no indicator of poor health in general). Which is good if you're thinking of investing in one of these TLDs.
Boston Ivy, the registry for all four, has lowered prices permanently, and by significant amounts. Here's a look at the price change per year:
The quintessentially mercantile top-level domain of .markets is entering the Sunrise phase, which will last until June 17 on a first-come, first-served basis, just like tomatoes at your local vegetable stand. Unlike tomatoes, a one-year registration during this phase will cost $313.39.
There will be no Landrush phase.
The GoLive phase will begin June 17 promptly at 5 p.m. PDT (2015-06-18 00:00 UTC), after which a one-year registration will cost $82.45.
Remember, the Sunrise phase is for TMCH-registered trademark holders. Contact our corporate support team if you have a TMCH-registered trademark (or would like help registering your existing trademark at TMCH) in order to register one of these new gTLDs during Sunrise. If you are not among the trademarked, you can still pre-register for the Landrush or GoLive phases. We'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment – as soon as your chosen phase begins – for the best chance of success.
