MMX's record-breaking top-level domain .VIP was honoured today with an infographic in leading domain name investment blog, OnlineDomain. In an article entitled ".VIP Sells 167,231 Domains Within 24 Hours Of Launch (infographic)", the site's editor in chief Konstantinos Zournas writes, ".VIP entered General Availability on the 17th of May breaking all New gTLD registration records for domain name registrations in the first 24 hours after launch." Mr Zournas writes, ".VIP is a Minds + Machines (MMX) new extension. Within the first 24 hours of launch exactly 167,231 domains were registered according to the company. It has been the fastest registered New Extension since the NEW gTLD program started in January 2014. According to NameStat.org .VIP is already #2o of all new gTLDs in terms of domain names registered." The article quotes MMX CEO Toby Hall, who characterized the launch as "an exceptional start" for the new top-level domain. "The strong international demand for .VIP domains is highly encouraging. We have worked hard with the retail channel to ensure the domain is keenly priced for both domain investors and end-users. The support from the international registrar community has been exceptional." MMX Chairman Guy Elliott is quoted, "“In China, the acronym ‘VIP’ is universally accepted as a Chinese word. It means so much more than 'very important person.' Contemporary Chinese people view VIP as standing for prestige and honor, and applies to people, places, objects and experiences."
