If you visit this page located at Wikipedia you’ll see top YouTube Channels with number of subscribers. It’s no wonder – YouTube today has become the go-to channel in terms of information and entertainment. More and more people are slowly leaving direct Television – and switching over to YouTube because of the variety, portability and the free access it provides.
Here is the list of top ten YouTube Channels with their .com and .tv extensions:
|PewDiePie||registered||registered||.com & .tv forwards to YT page||Excellent|
|TSeries||registered||registered||Tseries.com an official site and .tv is available. Ignored hyphen||Should register/get .tv name|
|5MinuteCrafts||registered||registered||.com shows 5minutescrafts heading and .tv returns nothing||needs to fix .tv and .com|
|CanalKondZilla||available||registered||.com is a parked page. And, TV is available||Should register/get .tv and .com|
|SETIndia||registered||registered||.com an official website and .tv returns nothing||should get .tv domain|
|JustinBieber||registered||registered||.com and .tv both takes some other pages||should try?|
|Cocomelon||available||registered||.com takes to official site and tv is available||should forward to YT channel or make a better website|
|WWE||registered||registered||.com and .tv takes to official site||nothing|
|DudePerfect||available||registered||.com takes to official site and tv is available||get a .tv|
|HolaSoyGerman||registered||registered||.com and .tv returns nothing||get a tv and .com|
Although, TV extension should not be associated with a YouTube channel. But, for brand protection, it’s a necessity I say. So, companies/Channels who’re not having that not so popular and commercial .tv extension but have millions of subscribers should give a thought on registering the .tv extension. The cost could be well recovered with the leaking traffic via a .com or .tv extension.
My next question on this series – should channels with high subscribers forward their domain to the YouTube channel or maximize it via a domain name?
