New .bank Domain Sees Strong Demand with 3,000 Applications

Last night, within the first 10 minutes of general availability for .bank domain names, more than 3,000 applications were received. These join the 782 applications for .bank domains filed during the “sunrise” period for banks whose names have previously been registered in an international trademark directory.
