Why you can’t afford to miss out on a .club web address if you want all eyes on you online…
Forget needles in haystacks, when you’re a club, fighting for an audience online, you can often feel like a grain of sand in the Sahara.
Fortunately, you’ll be able to hand internet users a searchlight from today. At 4pm, the web address ending .club will go on sale. One of the advantages of having one of these, is that it allows internet users to identity your club as a club from the moment their search engine results load.
The second advantage is that these new web endings give you the opportunity to get a web address where the entire name reflects your club more specifically – be among the first to register and you could get thebestnightclubintheworld.club if you wanted!
The release of this new web address ending couldn’t have come sooner. The first clubs were formed in the UK as early as the 14th century and they’ve continued to be set up ever since. In fact, one of the first clubs ever officially formed was called La Court de Bonne Compagnie, aka the court of good company, and it existed in the reign of Henry IV.
Today, there are millions of clubs in the UK. Fifty thousands of these are book clubs. You might think this is a modern phenomenon and that the fad will pass. But you’d be wrong. Book clubs can be traced back centuries. In Cumbria, the Dalton Book Group, had their inaugural meeting in May 1764.
In addition to this, there are more than 150,000 sports clubs in the UK. Each one has an average of around 100 adult members and 90 junior members.
Then there are the golf clubs. Golf courses cover 270,000 hectares of land – that’s a massive 2 percent of the UK’s total space, and enough room for more than 15,212 holes. If you’re interested, that would take you roughly 105 days, without sleep, to complete.
On top of that, there’s the nightclubs, of which there are 2,150 in the UK. Not to mention all the hobby clubs, social clubs, and country clubs.
So, if you want to stand out from this enormous crowd, log on to the UK2 website from late afternoon today and get your club some extra exposure online.
