Beginning March 30, dotSucks domain names will be up for grabs, but only if you can afford annual prices of up to $2,499, MarketingLand reports.

Vox Populi, the company selling the .sucks website names, claims the domains are “designed to help consumers find their voices and allow companies to find the value in criticism.”

“Each dotSucks domain has the potential to become an essential part of every organization’s customer relationship management program,” the website says.

Industry leaders have little good to say about the dotSucks domain names, calling the sale of them a shakedown to extort money from business owners.

The early registration period — otherwise known as the ‘sunrise’ period during which some domains can be reserved — begins March 30 with general availability beginning June 1.

Companies with registered trademarks will have to shell out $2,499 to grab their .sucks domains.

Non-trademarked names can be reserved for $299.

Pricing has been laid out by the company in a chart, seen below.
