I was excited about .SEXY and .TATTOO going live today. While I don’t think either is worth spending thousands of dollars on there are a few names in each I’d like. Unfortunately it looks like there are some problems on the backend and registrars are allowing you to buy names that aren’t actually available. I don’t think I’ll buy more than 2-3 domains in each of these TLDs but there are a handful that I would like to have.
I don’t think I’ve seen this particular problem before and am sure it will be resolved soon, the question is, what will be left after it is resolved? Konstantinos did a good post about the problem earlier today and some people mentioned reserving names at multiple registrars and having them all come back as unavailable. It does look like 101Domains does have the highest success rate so far but that could just be luck of the draw.
I don’t think this will be a huge problem for Uniregistry as I do think the best .SEXY names will sell one way or another. The complexity will be in who gets the name which in some cases it looks like could be the second or third person to buy them. Either way I’ll keep trying for a few, I don’t think there’s any pot of gold here but I sure would like to nab Morgan.sexy 🙂
