There are 2 applications for .RUN
So while I was running in Paris, I wondered if there would be a TLD for runners like me…and guess what…there are 2 applications for .RUN and they are in contention:
First one is from dot Run Limited (Famous Four Media);
The other one is from Snow Park, LLC (Donuts).
There will be a .RUN Registry in the end and it will become possible to register domain names ending in .RUN (instead of .com :-). So what is the market for .RUN ? Do runners communicate on Internet? Do they need to communicate because they are runners? Is .RUN for runners only?
