.buzz and .support go live

DotStrategy has become the newest registry with a gTLD live in the DNS root.

Its .buzz, which is aimed at “groups related to blogging, communications, journalism, advertising, and marketing and development” was delegated last night.

The first second-level name, nic.buzz, is currently resolving to a parking page — seemingly managed by one of the usual parking companies — which, let’s face it, looks a bit crap even as a temporary measure.

That said, I really like .buzz as a concept, if for no other reason than it’s a rare example of a gTLD string that seems to have been selected by a human rather than an algorithm.

Speaking of which, Donuts also had its 42nd gTLD, .support, delegated last night.

There are now 54 new gTLDs live in the DNS root.
