Now anybody can register a '.game' top-level domain

The menagerie of content-specific top level domain (TLD) names grew once again on Tuesday when registry service, Uniregistry, opened up .game to the public. It joins other custom TLDs like .beer and .nyc, which have already been around for years.

Of course, don't expect big or brand name domains to still be available. Uniregistry held a week-long early access enrollment last week and virtually every major studio, including Nintendo, EA and Microsoft, has already claimed their own intellectual properties. Blizzard, for example, nabbed domains for Warcraft, StarCraft, Hearthstone, Diablo and Heroes of the Storm. That said, there are still plenty of domains available, assuming you can afford the annual $318.88 fee to maintain it.Uniregistry
