While both .rest (for restaurants) and .bar (for, well, bars) have been open for business since 2014, today, October 19 the special, exclusive .bar and .rest are opening up too.

We're talking of course about premium domains.

These are the exclusive .rest and .bar's that are in high-demand, with a steeper price of admission to go with it. Here's just a sample menu of available options:

airport.bar (for that pre-flight grog)
exotic.bar (for all the rum drinks you can stomach)
fight.bar (first rule is: don't talk about fight.bar)
american.bar (play this one again, Sam)
cajun.rest (jumbalaya and crawfish pies)
buenosaires.rest (probably a steak house with a good house Malbec. Tuesdays are Tango night)
detroit.rest (for good food and good music, we assume)

As you can see, it's mostly a mix between some nice generic names and more geographic names.

Open that .bar or .rest you always wanted?:

.tld

This Monday is July 14th, which means our Parisian colleagues will be intoxicated with liberty and enthusiasm on the day of their independence. Here in the San Francisco office, we'll be tirelessly toiling on many things, not least of which is the planned GoLive of two new gTLDs.

Publically available registrations of .bar and .rest domains is scheduled to begin on Monday, 14 July at 5am PDT (noon UTC). Here are the prices in Landrush and GoLive at A rates:

  • .bar: $237.80 | $85.43
  • .rest: $170.63 | $42.88

At the time of this writing, there are just two hours left of the Landrush phase. You can already preregister for the GoLive phase right now. We recommend doing so as soon as possible, as we will be submitting the orders to the Registry at the moment GoLive begins, in the order they're received.

 

Register a domain under either of these TLDs?:
