November 2013 – Famous Four Media (FFM) and Key-Systems today announced a strategic partnership to jointly develop, market and sell the FFM generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) portfolio. Famous Four Media is managing some of the most relevant suffixes in the domain industry, such as .accountant, .bid, .date or .download; 12 of the 57 applied for strings are uncontested.
The first uncontested new gTLD FFM launches will be .BID. The Sunrise for .bid is expected to start in early 2014. With its strings FFM offers new secure and intuitive naming options.
