Yesterday, GMO Registry partnered with Alibaba Group to hold the first ever auction of .shop domain names. As the largest retail commerce company in the world, Alibaba was the perfect platform to provide the first opportunity to bid for .shop premium names.
Around 20 names were put up for auction, under the theme of "shopping" (of course!). The auction targeted the Chinese market and featured numbers that are considered lucky in addition to Chinese words. All 20 names were sold for a total of RMB 391,131 (US$58,583). Here are the top sellers.
.shop is the definitive online shopping address. Whether your business is online or offline a .shop domain name instantly identifies your website as a place to shop. Coming to the Internet this summer! .shop is operated by GMO Registry, Inc.
