Discover your next domain
Your domain name says a lot about your business. The launch of new gTLDs is a fantastic opportunity to select a domain name that perfectly suits your needs… So what are you waiting for?
In 2011, ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) approved a plan to implement one of the biggest changes the internet has ever seen, allowing organisations to apply for their own domain extensions.
Traditional extensions like .com, .net and .org will now be joined by over 1,000 new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs), including geographical locations, generic words and financial terms – e.g. .london, .shop, .careers or .solutions. This change represents the beginning of a new digital landscape, and it’s a fantastic opportunity for companies to strengthen their online presence.
(Remember, a TLD is what appears after the ‘dot’ in a domain name – e.g. .com, .org or .info).
New addresses including .technology, .education and .construction are becoming available, enabling you to replace your .com or .co.uk extensions with an address that more accurately describes your business.
A new gTLD will make it easier for customers to find your website – you can even have your location as part of your domain name. New gTLD registration from SSL247® is the perfect solution to set your brand apart from competitors, increase brand awareness and target new markets and revenue streams.
Competition for the new gTLDs will be fierce, and it’s important to stay ahead of the competition. Our advice is to at least be aware of what’s happening – knowledge is power, after all! Just fill out this form and we’ll send you regular updates about new extension releases and our Online Business Continuity Services
If you’re interested in gaining exclusive priority access to the new gTLDS, before public release, check out our Online Brand Protection.
Without Brand Protection, there’s nothing to prevent cyber-squatters and hackers from registering new gTLDs containing your organisation’s name. This could damage your reputation, leave your customers vulnerable to web threats such as phishing, and cost you thousands to rectify.
Pre-empt this costly threat and be first in line for new gTLDs by ensuring access to your brand is restricted with Brand Protection by SSL247®.
Registering your trademark with us will give you the following essential benefits:
- Access to an exclusive priority gTLD registration period of at least 30 days prior to public release (known as the sunrise period).
- Regular gTLD release updates to keep you on top of proceedings – enabling you to avoid the frustration of a daily manual check
- Alerts any time someone tries to register a domain extension including your brand name
