I was looking for a .ai domain for my AI coaching bot. No surprise... all the short names were taken or the two I could get were $15k & $20k! Not the kinda budget I had in mind for this project.
Searching around I found that I could register the same two names with a .bot domain for ~$70! The hack is that you do need to create and publish a bot as Amazon controls the .bot name releases and verifies the bot's presence.
If you are interested to know how to do it then hit me up and I'll post an article on how to register one a few steps.
