Top Level Design signed for .ink, which is expected to compete with Uniregistry’s already-delegated .tattoo.

XYZ.com signed for its uber-generic budget offering .xyz.

BusinessRalliart is now contracted for its Japanese geo .okinawa.

IRI Domain Management, affiliated with the Mormon church, got its .mormon RA, for what is expected to be a “highly restricted” religious namespace.

    Yes, every single stupid one of them will fail. Thanks for the snort when reading that .INK is going to challenge .TATTOO. Why? To fight over a market that doesn’t even exist in the first place? You kidding?
