Cool Poker.com success brings sister-name to auction--China Net Technology Limited news

With poker.com already a well-established location for online card players, domain name poker.com.vc is this week up for auction.

The .vc domain is the country code top-level domain for Caribbean islands St Vincent and The Grenadines, but has also become the domain representation of 'virtual community' and 'venture capital'.

Poker.com.vc can hope to fetch a high price from companies looking for a popular and catchy web address, in the wake of the success of generic domain name poker.com.

By choosing a web address corresponding exactly to its product, poker.com has become a favourite site with many fans of the card-game.

Its generic domain name gives the site a sense of being the leader in its sector, with poker players searching for an online outlet for their hobby likely to easily locate the site, sometimes without even using a search engine.

Once arrived at the site, poker.com provides customers with links to various online poker rooms, along with reviews of what each of them offers.

The auction of poker.com.vc may lead to the foundation of another great site based on the generic domain name.

whois.net doesn't even support search for .vc
A google search for .vc turned up no responses on page 1
BTW, where do you even register these?

No so according to this sales pitch to "Savvy Investors" for .vc

http://vegascasinos.vc/

QUOTE: “You can now own a domain name branded with .VC, soon to be synonymous with the world of Vegas Casinos...
But you must take advantage NOW, before the word gets out and savvy investors pounce on this opportunity,
driving up the price of ‘getting in’ to a level beyond your wildest dreams!”

QUOTE: "Add it all up and you can easily see why .VC will take the domain world by storm!"

.vc names are still available for sale on their site (no prices listed) sold by "the Domain Name Divas" :p
