Le Sporting Club propose des salles de sport dans différentes villes pour pratiquer le football par exemple. Voici ses réponses".

What is NDD.buzz?
The domain is the Premium domain name negotiated with the .BUZZ Registry to talk about domain names in French. Most of the information being published by accredited Registrars, there was no independent website pointing to the global domain name information. NDD.buzz was born.
The domain was created in March 2014 and was recently transferred to Jean Guillon's accredited Registrar with help from the Registry.
Why a ".buzz" domain name?
The purpose of the NDD.buzz website is to point to the right information as soon as it is published. The info usually come from Registrar and Bloggers. According to Wikipedia, the "marketing buzz" is a term used in word of mouth marketing. It is exactly what we do here: we provide an extract of a few line from the information and offer to read it on the author's website. The idea is to publish as fast as an information appears, as often as possible. We also write articles here from time to time.
Who uses ".buzz" domain names?
There will soon be 10 000 domain names registered and the travel/tourism industry has understood, and values, the meaning of the word "buzz": there are few geographic and city domain names left in ".buzz". There are also another communities registering ".buzz" domain names.
If I would not disclose the deal, I particularly want to thank the .BUZZ Registry for helping me with this transfer and the gaining Registrar Namebay who was king enough to install the zone file for me prior to transferring the domain.
Extract in French: "La nouveauté: Les noms de domaine à forte valeur ajoutée coûtent souvent plus cher car ils peuvent être plus courts ou plus génériques. Un nom de domaine tel que fra.club (nom de domaine court) ou handball.club (nom de domaine générique) font partie de la liste que le registre vient de mettre à disposition du public. Jusqu’à présent, il fallait s’adresser à une plateforme d’enchères bien connue des Domainers, pour prétendre à l’enregistrement d’un de ces noms que nous appellerons “Premiums”. Si le fonctionnement de cette plateforme est bien connu des professionnels du marché, sa complexité la rend peu accessible par des utilisateurs comme vous et moi. Le principe de l’enchère n’inspirant pas non plus confiance lorsque l’on ne pratique pas régulièrement, ces noms de domaine étaient restés inaccessibles pour tous".
A good news for non professionals
Traditional Registrants (end-users), like you and I, now have access to unique ".club" domain names directly at their Retail or Corporate Accredited Registrar. I personally use Namebay at the moment.
Extract from gTLD.club
"The most important thing is that the premium price is for the first year only. All renewals are always at regular General Availability prices (unless your Registrar invents something different). An example: if you pay €100,00, €800,00 or more for your generic Premium ".club" domain name, the price you will pay each year could be as low as €12,00 !"
The official list of Premium ".club" domain names is available on gTLD.club but asking Nameshield is a good option too.
What if multiple applicants applied for strings such as .LION or .CROCODILE in Round 2 of the ICANN new gTLD program? If we focus on sales registrations for color new domain name extensions, animal names could be a hit...but not for the same reasons. Extract of my post: Some applicants realized that speculating with new gTLD applications was possible. Auctions for some of them also seem to have been lucrative but this is nothing compared to private auctions: some new gTLD applications were won in auctions for millions of Dollars leaving their applicants with more money than what they spent to apply.
