New gTLD Case Study, Update #5: 100 Dot Berlin Domains

Posted on 18 June 2014 by Andrei

Got an email about the fact that 101Domain is offering up to 100 free Dot Berlin domain, so I thought it would be an interesting experience to register 100, point them to “this domain is for sale” landing pages and see what happens.

Today, I’ll be sharing those domains as well as a few details about the approach I’ve chosen.

First and foremost, I decided to register three letter Dot Berlin domains and furthermore, decided to pick the letters based on their usage frequency in Germany. Please note that one letter might be more popular in the English language than in the German one, so whenever you want to analyze the letter quality of a domain, don’t forget to ask yourself who your target audience is.

I used this Wikipedia page when picking the letters.

Most of the 100 domains I’ve registered (70) contain the 8 most popular letters in Germany:

e
n
i
s
r
a
t
d

For the remaining 30, I also used the 9th most popular letter: h

To generate all possible letter combinations, just use this website, type in one letter per row and then write down “.berlin” in the “Suffix sets with” box.

That’s it, you’ll receive a list of domains in the “LLL.berlin” (one domain per row) format that you can simply copy/paste over at 101Domain to check for availability.

The entire process (picking the domains and hand registering them) took about 20 minutes or so.

Next, I set up “domain for sale” landing pages on each domain.

I’m not from Germany but my German is reasonably good, so the landing pages contain a message in English as well as the German version. If you can’t speak German and want to use an online translation tool, please keep in mind that the translation won’t be perfect and in fact may contain errors that might make your landing page seem unprofessional.

I’d recommend asking someone who knows German for an opinion or if you want to simply use the message I have on my landing pages (or a variation thereof), feel free to do that. I don’t mind.

As you’ll be able to see by taking a look at the landing pages below, I’m pricing all of them at 295 EUR, approximately $400 at the current exchange rate.

Pointing the 100 domains to “domain for sale” landing pages took about 30-40 minutes.

All in all, I’ve invested 50-60 minutes of my time.

Dot Berlin is a desirable extension in my opinion, should be an interesting experiment.

    Thanks for the tip. I managed to register 100 .Berlin domains just before the promotion ended.
