If you have ever owned a website, you have experienced the discomfort that comes with finding the perfect domain name for your business or blog. I call it “discomfort” because, well, aren’t all good domain names already taken?

Until a few years ago, that had been the case but not anymore! Today, you can get any domain name that you desire, on a domain extension that best suits the purpose of you website.

Don’t just settle for any name, look for alternatives.

When the Internet first manifested, it was assumed that there would be government websites (.GOV), social organizations (.ORG), commercial / business portals (.COM), networks (.NET), educational websites (.EDU), and so on. Nobody knew then how the Internet would evolve in its scope, and explode to 2 billion domain names! 30 years later, we now have a more evolved website naming system, with a specific domain extension for every industry out there.

For example, there’s .STORE for eCommerce and retail, .TECH for technology, .FUN for leisure, .PRESS for media and news, and then there are universal domain extensions such as .ONLINE, .SITE, that can be used by a variety of businesses.

So, why look for something unique among the 2 billion domains that are already taken? New domains are the way to go!

How do new domain extensions help?

New domain extensions are not just functional, they are also pretty cool!

By using a contextual or industry-relevant domain extension, you can give your startup a robust brand which helps in gaining and retaining the right customers. Put simply, new domain extensions are your chance to get a creative, super-sleek domain name that stands out of the clutter.
