Famous Four Media smashes through the half a million domain name registrations mark
Wednesday, 20th May 2015 Gibraltar: Earlier today, the number of domain names in Famous Four Media registries surpassed half a million. This equates to nearly 10% of all domains registered under ICANN’s new gTLD program.
“We are delighted in rapid growth in the registries under our management” said Andy Churley, CMO of Famous Four Media, the registry management company for 16 new domain extensions. “The go-to-market approach FFM has adopted is clearly striking a chord with the public and to have reached 500,000 registrations in such a short time is a testament to the strong strategy and great staff at FFM.”
In 2013, ICANN the body that oversees domain names on the Internet embarked on a massive program of change opening up the domain name space to thousands of new domain endings. Web-addresses can now end in almost any series of letters.
“A great part of the success comes down to the domain endings we manage.” continued Churley “People love .PARTY, .SCIENCE and .WEBCAM in particular, these strings have a broad appeal and are words that work in many languages. We are just as excited about the domain endings we will be launching, in particular .DATE and .REVIEW, which we believe share a mass appeal. ”
Famous Four Media plans to launch 10 more domain extension in 2015 to augment the six domain endings (.BID, .TRADE,.WEBCAM, .SCIENCE, .CRICKET and of course .PARTY ) that are already available.
