This week, we’ll talk about the .WEB gTLD extension; detailing its potential uses and how it can benefit registrants for that specific domain space.

The .WEB gTLD is popular because it is such a generic term and not limited to an specific industry or niche. In fact if you think about it, it is more relevant to any website than a .COM which was originally intended for commercial websites.

Benefits of a .WEB domain name

  • Highly versatile and flexible.You can literally make any domain name under this gTLD extension and use it for whatever purpose you see fit.
  • Not limited to a specific industry or niche. It is applicable to commercial websites, brand pages, campaigns, not-for-profits, groups and individuals.
  • Opportunity to get the name you want.
  • The perfect alternative to a .COM domain name.
