The Internet domain game got a new player as .Club Domains won the rights to the new generic top level domain (gTLD) name .CLUB. The .CLUB name was obtained in the first private auction to be completed since ICANN began the new gTLD process, the Fort Lauderdale-based company said.
.Club Domains also announced that it has completed a $7 million funding round and plans to add 20 to 30 jobs. “What .COM has done for companies, .CLUB will do for membership organizations of all sizes." said .Club Domains’ CEO Colin Campbell, founder of Tucows International and Hostopia.
