Do you carefully consider your domain extension?
To be present online, is to make choices. Do you build your own website? What will the design look like? Which content do you provide? When you pick a domain name, you’ll think the name through. But does that thinking also apply for the domain extension?
The recent internet (r)evolution enables us to choose out of more than 1.300 domain extensions. As a result, not only your domain name but also the extension matters. It tells something relevant about you, your company, product or service.
FREEDOM OF CHOICE IN DOMAIN NAMES
From .ads to .zip, From 2 or 3 characters (.ca and .bio) to 12 or 13 characters (.versicherung and .international). Domain extensions based on geography, media, entertainment, culture, education, technology, sports, health, business, brands and finance. It seems like we have an almost unlimited choice! Indeed, more than 800 new extensions were launched last year and we can now choose out of 1.300 domain extensions.
Relevant extension + meaningful (domain) name = distinct online identity
