Get Snapping with the .PHOTOS Domain Extension

.Photos Domains

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.

For Enthusiasts

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!

Spotlight on .WEBSITE: One of the First Generic New Domain Extensions

Even with a slew of new domain extensions aimed expanding the Internet landscape and increasing the online visibility of an array of individual industries, the range and flexibility of a generic domain extension will always have a place online. The problem is, with a dwindling supply of short, available names in the .COM and .NET namespaces, domain registrants face a tough challenge when searching for a memorable, generic domain name that meets their needs.

Enter .WEBSITE, now available for free pre-registration now at United Domains. As one of the very first truly generic extensions to go live, .WEBSITE will open up a new, unclaimed territory of available generic domain names perfect for practically any site you can imagine.

But what really sets .WEBSITE apart, and what can it do for your online presence? Sandeep Ramchandani, Business Head of Radix FZC, took some time to describethe registry’s vision for the .WEBSITE domain extension, as well as outline the benefits a .WEBSITE domain name offers over other options.

Who is .WEBSITE for?
.WEBSITE is for anyone anywhere to use! It is truly global, synonymous with the internet and completely restriction-free. Individuals, large organizations, startups, individual businesses, industries, countries, communities….everyone can use a .WEBSITE and be limited only by their imagination. Anyone looking for a short, memorable, easily available domain name should get a .WEBSITE- irrespective of whether they are first time domain-name owners or not.

What sets .WEBSITE apart from other new gTLDs?
It is the first pure generic to launch in the new gTLD space. The .WEBSITE domain is truly representative of the internet and is understood in multiple languages. You transact business on the internet through a website, you share your opinions on the internet on a website, you stream videos through a website, you listen to music on a website, you spend all your time on the internet interacting with websites…so why have your online presence on anything but a .WEBSITE? It has infinite scope and is purely generic, like no other new gTLD!

How will a .WEBSITE domain benefit businesses?
Having a .WEBSITE domain will enable businesses to get the perfect, short and easily brandable name for them on the internet. The online space today is so crowded with millions of domain names that finding a high-quality name is extremely tough! The average length of a domain name today is 15 characters! On .website, you can get much shorter names very easily, allowing businesses better branding and SEO/SEM opportunities.

What kind of future do you imagine for .WEBSITE?
Existing domain owners are definitely going to be an important part of our target market – statistics say that given the opportunity, 52% of current domain name users are willing to change their domain, primarily because they couldn’t get a short domain name of their first choice. And 59% would definitely consider a new gTLD.  Having said that, we envision most of the demand for .WEBSITE coming from first-time domain name owners who are eager to create their first online identity – whether they are individuals or organizations! We aim for .WEBSITE to be the domain of choice for new users seeking to grab a highly brandable piece of internet real estate.
