New DNA social media site highlights “in the wild” domains

The Domain Name Association has launched a new web site to show off domains, primarily new gTLD names, that have been spotted “in the wild”.

InTheWild.domains points to a Tumblr blog where members and others can share, for example, photos of billboards or promotional videos that prominently feature new domains.

“Tumblr offers the DNA a very efficient and flexible platform that will help the DNA social media team and you find and post more domains, rather on non-productive management tasks,” the DNA told members.

The site currently has a few dozen posts, such as a WePark.nyc billboard and a VSquared.rocks red carpet video.

Most listed domains are in 2012-round new gTLDs, but there’s a .info, a .us and a .co in there too. I don’t see any .com names.

The submission process appears to be open to everyone, but submissions are moderated by the DNA’s social media people.

    Hi Kevin,

    .Com examples are welcome at InTheWild.Domains, such as this very cool billboard for QuitPlan.com: http://inthewild.domains/post/121835451373/quitplan-com. The key is we want to show creative uses of domains, where the domain name itself adds value to the presentation and/or is uniquely creative. 🙂

    Best,
    Jeff
