Latest .City domain name launches with 4,000+ registrations

.Wien launches. .Tokyo is next week. The latest geo city top level domain name to launch received more than 4,000 registrations on its first partial day. .Wien (German for Vienna) launched yesterday and added 4,201 domain names to the zone file. That brings its total to about 4,650. The registrations are spread across multiple registrars, mostly focused in Europe. United Domains got about a quarter of all registrations, judging from nameservers used. .Wien domain names will set you back about $35-$60 per year. 1&1 is offering the domains with a $29.99 first year price and then $49.99 going forward. A potentially much bigger city domain name goes live next week. .Tokyo domain names enter general availability on July 22.
