Later, this year, you will be able to get yourself a .blog domain extension, after Automattic, parent company to WordPress.com, secured the rights to manage the sale and registration of .blog domains.

The news were made known through a post on WordPress’ official blog though they did not say how much the new top-level domains (TLDs) will cost.

Domain registration prices are still being finalized, but they will be in the standard range for new top-level domains with some premium pricing for higher-value names.

The domain names will become available through traditional timeframes such as “sunrise” (the period during which trademark owners can purchase domain names) and “landrush” (the time in which applications can be received prior to general availability).
