CSL GmbH takes over Domain Business from EIS AG

With Joker.com, CSL Computer Service Langenbach GmbH became one of the most successful domain registrars in Germany. Offering best conditions with optimal handling for our customers, resellers and registrants always is and has been our first priority for acting.

After many years of cooperation with our swiss business partner EIS European Internet Service AG in Zug, the surroundings of the domain business and legal conditions have changed.
These changes have induced the board of directors of the EIS AG, to liquidate their business and offer it on behalf of the customers to CSL GmbH as a full takeover.
CSL GmbH agreed to this offer, and will therefore continue to offer domains using the CSL trademark “Joker.com”, and will also continue all existing customer relationships without change.
We will also inform our customers separately in the near future.

We as CSL GmbH are thrilled to run Joker.com, continuing the success and helping to further form the domain market.
We are delighted by the trust that you – our clients – place in us, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with you. Our pipeline is already full of innovative new features – please stay tuned!

Your Team of Joker.com

Do you miss a special toplevel domain on Joker.com? Right now there are more than 1000 domain endings and we can’t offer all of them. If you are interested in a domain ending which we don’t offer (yet), please let us know. We’re always interested to see how much demand exists for one domain ending. If a few people want it, chances are high, that we will be offering it.

New TLDs, Promos and more

Fall is upon us and with it many new TLDs and Promos.
Let’s start with what’s new on JOKER.COM:

JOKER.COM offering .FI domains

Domain Logo: .FIIt didn’t go as smoothly as we hoped for and the Registry has still some issues to be worked out, but many of you transfered your .FI domains sucessfully to us which was the first step. .FI Domains can now be managed on JOKER.COM and new domains can be registered. The price for registration will be €17.90 as of November 1st, until then our special welcome price of just €14.99 is valid.

New TLDs: .shop, .games

dotshop_banner
.SHOP and .GAMES are both new domains on JOKER.COM, having started at the end of September.
.SHOP is the top level domain for all things shopping. Whether you sell products or services, online or offline a .SHOP domain name adds meaning to your online address and is a powerful marketing tool.

.SHOP is available for only USD 3.99/month at JOKER.COM.

dot games_domain_banner

.GAMES (not to be confused with .GAME) is the ideal domain for gaming platforms, blogs and magazines about games or even for publishers or developers. Where .GAME makes most sense for download- or landingpages for a single game, .GAMES is for all sites about games in general. But not only videogames profit from a catchy .GAMES domain ending, classic games like boardgames or sports events as well can make use of a .GAMES domain.

You can get your .GAMES domain at JOKER.COM for only USD 2.00/month

Domain Promos

New in October is our .NET flashsale from Oct 11th to Oct 13th where you can get your.NET domains for only USD 4.99 for the first year. New as well and running until Dec 31st: .STUDIO, .VIDEO and .LIVE – all for only USD 12.99/1st year each.
You can order those domains here.

And you’ve probably already seen our .EU promo which isn’t special just because of the price (though €1.99 for the first year is a pretty good price, we think) but it’s also the first time ever that we’ve placed an ad in a print magazine. We chose the German tech magazine t3n for that and we’re really happy with the final result. We’ve also placed a banner on their website. What do you think?

These are the 10 most popular new TLDs ranked by traffic

Registration numbers are an important indicator of interest, but there is more than that when comes to domains – this is true for both the classic TLDs and the new TLDs. Some domain ending seems popular if you look at the number of registrations, but quantity doesn’t always mean quality.

Brand protection company and domain registrar, Corporate Service Company (CSC), took a look on how gTLDS are being used and how popular each gTLD is. By looking at just the number of registrations, the domains popular in China dominate the list with .xyz, .top, .wang and .网址 on top of the list.

CSC now compiled an alternative list ranked by the number of domains in the Alexa 1M – a ranking of the million most popular websites on the web measured by traffic. How many of the new TLDs can be found in this list and which are most popular?

According to CSC, the alternative top 10 of new new gTLD is as follows:

.media
.today
.sexy
.news
.tokyo
.life
.social
.global
.space
.site

This might come as a surprise since .media for example has a registration volume of just 23.000 (February 2016) while .xyz had nearly 2 million registrations when this report was first published. The strongest gTLD by registration volume is .space in this list but it’s still below .global and .social according to popularity.

All in all, around 8000 of Alexa’s million most popular websites have a new gTLD. That’s not even 1% but according to CSC, the number increased 16% since their last report – the acceptance of the many new TLDs is definitely growing and more and more corporations or individuals use them as an alternative.
