The new gTLD .blog will go to general availability in November with a wholesale price tag of $20, it was revealed today.

The registry, Knock Knock Whois There, told registrars that sunrise will kick off August 18 and run for 60 days with a $130 price tag. Disputed sunrise domains will go to auction.

Landrush will follow for a week from November 2 with a $130 application fee and auctions for contested domains a week later.

General availability is then due to begin November 21, with a registry fee of $20.

There will be tiered pricing on reserved “premium” names.

The registry does not seem to have ruled out an Early Access Period either.

Tiered pricing sounds exhausting for buyers, but it's an interesting strategy to keep the income flowing. The $130 for opening sounds a bit too high for a new TLD, but I'm pretty sure many will be interested to secure a domain for themselves just for fun; heck, even I may do it.
