NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Uniregistry, Corp., a leading domain name registration services company, is pleased to announce the successful launch of the .mom domain extension to the internet. Timed to coincide with Mother's Day, .mom became widely available on May 3, 2016 and quickly garnered over 30,000 registrations in its first day of availability. This quick adoption makes .mom one of the biggest launches of a new domain name extension.
Sandie Angulo Chen, Editor of thedcmoms.com, is now the proud owner of DC.mom. "I've been thinking about ways to rebrand or relaunch The DC Moms, and .mom is providing me the perfect opportunity to become dc.mom, an ideal URL for my site of local, lifestyle, and parenting content."
Zabeen Bint Ahmed is the new owner of Jobs.mom. "As a mom-focused business, we decided to use a .mom domain name to differentiate ourselves in the market and truly be able to to reach the mothers we want. It's easy for these women to get lost in the vast universe of the internet - with so many companies and so many domains vying for these women's business, it was important for us to secure a .mom domain for our venture, letting these moms know that we were seriously catering to them."
"We're excited to bring .mom to the internet in time for Mother's Day," said Frank Schilling, Managing Director of Uniregistry, "and we are pleased to see the name taking on a playful generic quality for not-moms who are leaders in any field. .Mom is an innovative, 3-character name, and one of the most beloved sounds on earth. In .mom, everyone now has access to a new space with full name availability - for any online project."
Amanda Fessenden, Director of Registry Business Operations for Uniregistry, noted the widespread adoption of .mom names around the world. "We always knew that .mom would be a strong name in the United States, but we were especially pleased to see this extension resonate with users worldwide. More than half of our first day registrations were sold outside the United States."
Many premium .mom are still available at special pricing, including single character names like i.mom, geographic names like California.mom and Texas.mom, and activity specific names like yoga.mom and tech.mom. Premium names have a one-time, first-year fee that reflects the high value of the name, but will renew in future years at typical domain name registration prices.
.mom domain names are now available at domain registration companies worldwide. More details about this new domain extension, with links to places to buy .mom names, are available at http://www.go.mom.
