Moving to gTLD.club

I have been publishing content related to new gTLDs from several blogs and other platforms and just decided that it was time to cencentrate on one single website with a daily Newsletter.

Expect better contents published both in English and in French with a super cool daily Newsletter about new gTLDs...only.

For daily content related to new gTLDs, please stick to www.gtld.club from now on. Other websites I have been working on will (probably) remain static with a final announcement.

The reason of this change is very simple: it takes me a lot of time to post one single information per website and I'd rather focus on increasing value and audience on one website, instead of many.

Thank you.

Launching a CLUB on Internet?

AS EASY AS 1-2-3
  1. First: you need a .club domain name;
  2. Second: you need a CMS;
  3. Third: you need a template for a club;
  4. What is it that you can't read here?
This is where it gets interesting: many solutions exist to create a website online, but the one with Google Sites allows you to select templates during the creation process of your first website. I like to remind you that many offers allow that too, but Google Sites has an option entitled "Browse the Gallery for more" and guess what: on the seven libraries of templates offered, one is entitled "Clubs and organizations". Some are ugly but... many are quite nice and I have no doubt that you can build your first club online with one of these.
