Artificial Intelligence (AI) is booming, and so are the domain names that represent it. According to a recent study from CSC companies that haven’t secured their branded .AI domains are learning a hard lesson: third-party actors are already snapping them up.

Key Statistics:

  • 43% of .AI domains are registered to unrelated third parties.
  • 350% year-over-year increase in .AI domain disputes in 2023.
  • 49% of .AI domains remain available for registration – but for how long?

The Growing AI Domain Dispute Problem

The surge in domain disputes demonstrates a growing problem for companies as they grapple with the rise of AI. Industries like banking, finance, and IT are particularly vulnerable. Even with increased AI regulation, companies remain eager to adopt these technologies and the demand for .AI domains will likely continue to rise.

The Takeaway

The rapid evolution of AI demands that companies take proactive steps to secure their online presence. The rise in .AI registrations and disputes emphasizes the need for vigilance and a strong domain strategy.
