We’ve Got .EMAIL. Here’s Why You Should, Too.

Dozens of new domain extensions have already set to their task of molding the Internet landscape into a wider, more accessible place for everyone. Every new domain extension has something to offer this brave new world of smarter web addresses, whether it’s identifying an industry, a hobby or even a city. But even among countless useful domain extensions, there are bound to be some that stand out. As of Wednesday, March 26th, .EMAIL ($29.90/yr) has become one of them.

The official web address of a mainstay communication platform, .EMAIL is still hot off the heels of its recent release, and it’s already skyrocketed to popularity as the 7th most registered new domain extension on the web.

If these results seem surprising, they shouldn’t be. It’s almost impossible to imagine the world today without email. As one of the earliest communication formats on the Internet, email has persevered through the decades and now thrives as a preferred form of online communication. Today there are over 2.5 billion email users online, managing over 3.3 billion email accounts. The number of emails sent worldwide in just one day measures in the hundreds of billions. If you are reading this, you probably have at least one email address, and quite possibly more.

But email is not just one of the most popular ways to communicate over the web. It’s also become an indispensable tool for both ecommerce and brick and mortar businesses. It’s a central utility for managing our personal lives, as well, helping us to stay in touch with friends, family, colleagues and services. Newer methods of communication may come and go, but email is clearly here to stay.

Even with such popular support for both email as a platform and the .EMAIL extension itself, there is still a healthy abundance of strong names yet to be taken. Here’s what can make .EMAIL a valuable asset for you, your online presence, or your brand.

For All Businesses
Facilitating communications from both within and outside of a company is necessary for any business to establish credibility. Having a clear, intuitive method for customers to reach you helps to establish and maintain trust. The .EMAIL extension provides a clear and memorable destination for all email communications associated with your business. Customers and clients looking for a clear channel through which to reach you can be memorably directed to a .EMAIL address, either for a website or for a real email address they can contact.

For Email Services
The email services industry is growing, which means a larger number of services competing for business than ever before. In a growing marketplace, you only have a moment to make a strong first impression. If you’re in the business of email services, a .EMAIL domain name is just what you need to clearly represent your services to visitors while standing apart from competitors in the .COM and .NET namespaces.

For Personal Use
Everyone who’s online has an email address, but not everyone has a memorable address they can use. Many users register personalized domain names (i.e. JohnDoe.com) just to use as a memorable extension for their email address. With names in the generic namespace becoming more crowded, it’s tougher to find personal domains that match your name. Because it is available for open registration to anyone, .EMAIL opens up the namespace for billions of people, giving everyone a new opportunity to register a simple, personalized domain name to use as their email address.

.EMAIL is flexible, functional, and has a use for just about anyone on the web. Feel like adding a little power to your portfolio? Get a .EMAIL domain of your own for just $29.00 per year at United Domains today.

Another Great Launch: Over 70% of Pre-Orders Successfully Registered!

Domain extension releases have become a weekly event at www.UnitedDomains.com. Each and every week we witness an incredible turnout in support of new domain extensions.

This week’s release was no exception. This afternoon, we opened the floodgates to some powerful and eagerly anticipated new gTLDs: .COMPANY, .ACADEMY, .CENTER, .COMPUTER, .MANAGEMENT, .SYSTEMS, and the highly anticipated, Spanish-friendly gTLD .UNO.

We’ve mentioned our track record for successfully registering over 70% of domain names customers pre-order with us. It’s our pleasure to announce that that record is going strong. This afternoon, over 70% of pre-orders submitted were registered successfully.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the past months of new domain extension releases, it’s to never underestimate the power of a strong domain name. The release of new domain extensions each week spells big opportunities for the businesses, brands and blogs in related fields.

Don’t forget, we also released an exciting new extension, and the very first geographic new gTLD (link to blog post) to hit the market this year: .BERLIN. Geographic extensions like .BERLIN are perfect for building a trustworthy presence with a geographically specific market. They’re also indispensable tools for a region’s local businesses and tourism industry. In other words, they can spell big opportunity for you, so don’t miss out — be one of the first to register .BERLIN.

That wraps up new arrivals for this week, but there is always something new coming up at United Domains. Now is the time to confirm pre-orders for .BUILDERS, .EMAIL, .SOLUTIONS, .SUPPORT, .TRAINING, .CAMP, .EDUCATION, .GLASS, .INSTITUTE, and .REPAIR — all launching next Wednesday, March 26th! It’s a mighty batch of top-notch names, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring it to you next week. New domains mean new opportunities. Seize yours at United Domains!
