New domain names launched

It’s becoming increasingly more difficult to find the perfect domain name as more and more websites are built, so in a bid to combat this and also to make the web an easier place to navigate a wide range of new domain names have recently been released.

This range of top-level domain names simply refers to the extension at the end, such as .com or .co.uk and whilst we are currently quite used to seeing some variants already such as .biz or .org. now the flood gates have opened up for a whole host of possible domain names including .photography .food and weirdly .sexy and were set to start seeing lots of usual variants popping up soon.

What does it mean to you? Well it means that you now have a better choice of domain name and indeed a better chance of acquiring it, for example if the .co.uk and .com names are already taken then you could still use another extension such as .food or .photography and there are many more to choose from, covering lots of areas.

What are the new extensions?

Well so far they include:

  • .bike
  • .clothing
  • .guru
  • .holdings
  • .plumbing
  • .singles
  • .ventures
  • .camera
  • .equipment
  • .estate
  • .gallery
  • .graphics
  • .lighting
  • .photography
  • .construction
  • .contractors
  • .directory
  • .kitchen
  • .technology
  • .today
  • .enterprises
  • .tips
  • .sexy
  • .tattoo
  • .diamonds
  • .voyage
  • .land

How do these new names compare in cost?

The prices for the new domain names vary depending on the extension and most are slightly more than a traditional .co.uk would be, but the difference is quite small and the cost is still very, very affordable and for the sake of getting the right domain name or a more descriptive domain name it’s an investment well worth considering.
