A week before the 2015 Black Friday, buyers go on a shopping spree
Uniregistry, the registry behind the .blackfriday extension, added 386 domains to their .blackfriday zone files bringing the total of all names in the Black Friday space to just over 12,000.
Considering that .blackfriday, along with .christmas, fall into the “seasonal” category, the numbers, while small in comparison to many of the other new domain extensions, isn’t surprising.
But what is surprising, at least to me, is how many were added only a week before the holiday.
Many of the names were registered at Name.com to an organization that goes by the name of Smart Tax Professional Services, a CPA firm with a Michigan address, who paid to own the rights to market the Black Friday holiday for most of the decade of the 20’s securing 2021 thru 2030, minus the year 2025.
At the registration price of nearly $45 per domain, these Smart Tax Professionals appear to be ready, willing and able to carry the load for a long time.

Similarly, Smart Tax Professionals also registered the decade of the 20’s in the new domain extension .christmas, but unlike with .blackfriday they were fortunate enough, depending on how you look at it, to secure all the years including 2025.christmas paying as much as $20.99 for each domain at Name.com.
Christmas domains can be purchased at Uniregistry and are on sale now for as little as $6.88 and I would suggest that if you are interested in buying .christmas as gifts or otherwise, you should take advantage of the sale while supplies last because I’m guessing we’ll see the sale end as we get closer to December 25.
