.Sucks Gets Almost 3,400 Domain Registrations At Prices Up To $2,499 in Sunrise
#1
MONDAY,23 JUNE 2015 The Domains
According to the news from Domain Forum of China on June 23th,the .Sunrise period for the new gTLD .Sucks generated over 3,400 domain name registrations at pricing ranging up to $2,500 per domain name.

Premium .Sucks Sunrise registrations were sold for up to $2,499, with at a wholesale cost of $2,000 as set by the .sucks registry, Vox Populi Registry Ltd.

If all 3,400 registrations in Sunrise were sold at the $2K premium wholesale price, then Vox Populi just pulled in $6.8 Million

Mark Zuckerberg registered no less than 10 .sucks domain names:

markzuckerberg.sucks

markzuckerbergreally.sucks

mzuckerberg.sucks

mzuckerbergtotally.sucks

zuck.sucks

zuckerberg.sucks

zuckerbergreally.sucks

zuckerbergtotally.sucks

zuckreally.sucks

zucks.sucks

Guess it one thing to just suck and another to really or totally suck.

Miley Cyrus registered MileyCyrus.sucks, Paris Hilton registered parishilton.sucks and Oprah registered Oprah.sucks

Hillary Clinton registered HillaryClinton.sucks, although Bill did not register his .sucks domain.

Miller Beer were just one of many brand who registered multiple Miller sucks domains which probably are and will be costing them 7,500 a year: Miller.sucks; MillerLite.sucks and MillerTime.sucks

Sheraton registered:

sheraton.sucks

sheratongrand.sucks

sheratonresorts.sucks

sheratons.sucks

spg.sucks

spghotels.sucks

spgresorts.sucks

Even the United States Postal Service, which last I heard were losing billions spent a small fortune on .sucks domain names including:

prioritymail.sucks

unitedstatespostalinspectionservice.sucks

unitedstatespostalservice.sucks

unitedstatespostoffice.sucks

postmaster.sucks

postmastergeneral.sucks

Even Super Hero’s filed .sucks domain names, including Marvel.sucks

Company and brands in the Internet Space registered a lot of domain names like info.sucks, ninja.sucks, Godaddy.sucks although there is no domain registration for Verisign.sucks as of publication.

Many of big name Tech company’s registered their .sucks domain including Uber.sucks, Facebook.sucks, Google.sucks, Microsoft.sucks,
Instagram.sucks and salesforce.sucks to name a few.

I have no idea how but someone in Russia registered Russia.sucks in the Sunrise period.

A trademark on a country, I had no idea you could get one of those.

Many sports team, including many who do actually suck, registered their matching .sucks domain names.

However unlike other Sunrise periods of other new gTLD’s, this time many sports teams did not choose between registering just it’s nickname or of it’ss city + nickname, but covered all possibilities for example the San Francisco 49ers registered:

49ers.sucks

sanfrancisco49ers.sucks

sanfranciscofortyniners.sucks; and

niners.sucks

Here is the entire list: sucks sunrise (word)
