The new .cloud top-level domain (TLD) has hit general availability, with registrars offering domains for between $20 and $25, Domain Name Wire reported.

Aruba IT won the auction for the top level domain name in 2014, beating the likes Amazon and Google.

There are no restrictions on registering .cloud domain names, with many still open for registration.

.Cloud saw 500 sunrise applications and 2,651 land-rush applications.

The sunrise and land-rush periods for the launch of a new domain afford brands and investors a chance to get domains before the TLD becomes generally available.

According to Domain Name Wire, these early applications are strong launch numbers, while still being low enough that good names are still available.
