Launching a CLUB on Internet?

AS EASY AS 1-2-3
  1. First: you need a .club domain name;
  2. Second: you need a CMS;
  3. Third: you need a template for a club;
  4. What is it that you can't read here?
This is where it gets interesting: many solutions exist to create a website online, but the one with Google Sites allows you to select templates during the creation process of your first website. I like to remind you that many offers allow that too, but Google Sites has an option entitled "Browse the Gallery for more" and guess what: on the seven libraries of templates offered, one is entitled "Clubs and organizations". Some are ugly but... many are quite nice and I have no doubt that you can build your first club online with one of these.

Registrants: what they think about new gTLDs

New gTLDs?
Do you remember the first time you were asked about new generic Top-Level Domains? I remember asking about them and listening to Trademarks' first thought.

What Registrants think about new gTLDs
Extract:
  • My Registrar sends me too many emails about new gTLDs, this is annoying;
  • Why is there such a difference of price between Registrars?
  • I hate don't like domainers;
  • .BRAND new gTLDs are a good idea for those who can afford it;
  • ...

.WINE New gTLD is Here, Thanks to Politicians

.WINE: what about other Governments?

According to Jean Guillon: "We are thankful to Axelle Lemaire for its toughness and the action of its team but wasn't this an act of leadership to be able to force ICANN to act and to mobilize the international wine community, including the American one? In a nutshell, wasn't the political pressure applied on ICANN far more efficient than the protection mechanisms it offered at the beginning?"
