First good news concerning .FORUM: the registration costs have been drastically reduced! Before the relaunch of the extension, it was necessary to count €998 excl. VAT for a registration… which was relatively high.
From May 17th at 4pm (i.e. the day of the general availability) the .FORUM will be available to registration for €42 excl. VAT! This is an extraordinary price reduction… It would be a pity not to take advantage of it?
Release of domain names and 1 and 2 characters
Another not-to-be-missed news for the .FORUM. There is a release of reserved domain names. This means that some domain names that were previously unavailable will be available, starting at €42. This release also includes some 1 and 2 character domain names. Many Premium domain names are available, you can check them right here:
The entire list is available for pre-order.
In short, the agenda for the relaunch of the .FORUM extension is composed of the following 4 phases:
With this new launch, you will now be able to register your .FORUM domain name for €42 excl. VAT instead of €998 previously!
You can also take advantage of the many 1 and 2 character domain names that have been released and are available for registration (in pre-order).
There is also a list of over 300,000 Premium domain names available for pre-order.
