The .PW Registry, powered by Directi, has launched open registrations today for .PW. This was after successfully concluding Sunrise and Landrush periods.
Directi is calling .PW the Professional Web and is targeting small businesses in emerging economies, such as Brazil, Turkey, Indonesia, India, China and Russia. They have signed up over 100 Registrars to offer the TLD, making it one of largest group of registrars to offer a new TLD at its launch.
As a brand-new namespace, there is a lot of generic names still available for registration.
This a reminder that the current TLD’s, both gTLD’s and ccTLD’s will not be passive in the face of the rollout of new TLD’s.
