.CLUB Domains LLC is applying to run the .club gTLD within ICANN's new gTLD program. Its mission is to more adequately serve clubs and associations it believes are not adequately represented by current gTLD offerings such as .com and .org. The entity is one of the first public applicants within the program given that many potential applicants have kept their own plans under wraps, this public presence has allowed them to crete excitement around the potential extension and elicit support from those interested.[1]

The organization has operations in the USA, Canada, Ukraine, and the Philippines.[2]

Background

.CLUB Domains LLC was started by successful, serial entrepreneur Colin Campbell. His previous endeavors include founding both Tucows (1998) and Hostopia (2000), and acting as the founding director of The Canadian Internet Registry Association (CIRA).[3] He also has served as the Director of the Canadian Association of Internet Providers (CAIP).

Other current projects include GeeksForLess.com, Sharkfin Networks, and Brisk Mobile.

These projects have received a number of awards and recognized distinctions, including: Profit magazine's 7th fastest growing company in Canada (1997), 2nd fastest growing company in Canada (1998), #1 fastest growing company (2005) and Inc magazine's top 500 fastest growing companies (2005).[4]
