“To celebrate July 4th, we’re hosting an online auction with the .us domain. As the demand for keyword product specific top-level domains increase, the interest in .US domains has also grown,” said Monte Cahn, founder of Moniker. “Domain registrars in the US are seeing both companies and individuals scoop up these domains again.
