Yesterday we shared our 80% success rate for our latest batch of new generic top-level domains (new gTLDs). Included in that group is the highly sought after .PHOTOS extension. After seeing success with similar domains like .PHOTOGRAPHY and .CAMERA, we are certain .PHOTOS will be a great fit for many customers. So whether you’re a professional photographer or a weekend enthusiast, you’ll want to keep reading to find out how the .PHOTOS new gTLD can work for you!
Your Portfolio with .PHOTOS
In our digital age, an online photo portfolio is imperative for working photographers. No matter what skill level you’re at, a good website can easily set you apart from the competition. With the .PHOTOS new gTLD, you can easily build your website and advertise to potential customers.
With more than 150 million active users on Instagram, it’s clear amateur photography has become wildly popular across the globe. The .PHOTOS new gTLD is an amazing way to expand past using a third party platform and using your own site to share your enthusiasm. This is a great way to keep long distance friends and family in the loop.
Better than .COM
At this point, you might be wondering, “How is this any different from a .COM?” And that’s a good question! Since .COM has been around for decades, many of the premium names are already taken, meaning that you have to search for hours just to find an available domain name. Since .PHOTOS just launched, many domains are still available, meaning you’ll be more likely to find a domain name that works for you.
With .PHOTOS you can also register a shorter domain name. For example, before new gTLDs, you may settled for a mouthful like “johnsmithphotos.com”. Today you can register something like “johnsmith.photos”. We don’t know about you, but to us that just sounds better, looks better and is much shorter, which makes it easier to remember. You don’t want to lose out on traffic just because your domain name was too long, or even worse, too boring.
Why wait? Order your .PHOTOS domain today!
