The remaining application for .CLUB has been deemed an "uncalculated risk" by [[ICANN]] because of name collision with existing internal networks, which means the application will face delays until the issues are resolved. However, in a letter that .CLUB Domains LLC CTO [[Dirk Bhagat]] sent to [[ICANN]] on September 16, 2013, .CLUB Domains has proposed a solution to the name collision issue. The company hired the same firm that ICANN hired [[Interisle Consulting]] to report on the proposed .CLUB gTLD, and are proposing to reserve the top 50 name collisions of .CLUB, which is available knowledge now due to Interisle's report. The top 50 name collisions would be blocked from registration, and according to .CLUB Domains LLC would create a number of queries to the gTLD that it would be deemed by [[ICANN]] as "low risk."[http://domainincite.com/14501-club-offers-solution-to-name-collision-risks .club Offers Solution to Name Collision Risks] Retrieved 16 Sept 2013 ===Contract Signed=== On 08 November 2013, [[.CLUB Domains LLC]] received a [[Registry Agreement]] signed by [[ICANN]] for .club after passing all the required processes needed to become a [[Registry Operator]] for the string.[http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/registries Registry Agreements, ICANN.org] Retrieved 11 Nov 2013 ==Delegation and Availability== .club was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on January 18, 2014, completing the successful application for the string. ===Promotion=== .club Domains LLC has used extensive advertising campaigns to raise awareness about .club within the general public.

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
