.travel has a flourishing secondary market
Top level domains that serve an industry, such as .travel, have high levels of name use since most businesses have little desire to sell the names that represent their brands and products. However, a solid secondary market still exists for .travel names, as the recent transfer of easterisland.travel shows.
As part of Easter Island Traveling’s growth and preparation for the future, it proudly announced that it bought a new premium website URL with a .travel extension – www.easterisland.travel. Domains with these extensions are available exclusively to verified travel and tourism businesses and organizations. This premium domain was sold to Easter Island Traveling for not more than 1,000,000 CLP (US$1,545) by a Chilean private owner. At the same time the company changed its website URL from www.easterislandtraveling.com to www.easterisland.travel. It also changed its company name to Easter Island Travel to better fit the domain and for a cleaner, slicker impression.
