A .Estate Sighting in the Wild

Dec 31 2016

I took an impromptu trip to northwestern Costa Rica and was on the lookout for .com versus .cr domains, but was surprised to stumble across a new gTLD: CostaRicaRealEstate.Estate.

The picture below was taken while biking between the beach towns of Coco and Ocotal, on the Pacific coast.


The sign was on a dirt road in an area where most of the homes are inexpensively built of cinder blocks, and it’s interesting to see a really old school Hotmail email address with a new school domain extension.

The domain itself has a ‘coming soon’ lander live, and they have a link to their current site, which they chose to put on the .eu extension: CostaRicaRealEstate.eu. The .com extension is built out by a competing brokerage firm.

Donuts controls the .Estate extension, which has just under 10,000 domains registered.
