I actually was inspired by a fellow Risograph publisher, Issue Press, who has a .press domain name. Issue Press was a huge inspiration to me before I started Martian Press. Issue Press is one of the first presses I know of to use Riso as an artistic medium. I loved how clean the URL looked by incorporating part of the business name into the domain itself. Many independent publishers use the word press in their name, and I think utilizing a .press domain helps to keep a clean and privy look for publishers like myself and Issue Press.
I have to be honest, I did have concerns about choosing .Press. Would there be email issues,? Would it confuse people? Would my hosting environments accept the non-traditional extension ok? Would there be browser issues? SEO issues? I am happy to say that its been smooth sailing. No problems with email, acceptance, nor SEO. People like it.
We wanted a name that would resonate with the industry. The construction industry relies on the supervisors to execute at the ground level and that is why we chose our name, SuperWise, which helps deliver smarter insights from the construction sites to the management. As for the domain .site, again it resonates perfectly well with our name as the supervisors operate from construction sites. There is an element of novelty in the name of the website which is obviously helping but more importantly, it helps us establish that we are not a generic product but focused on a particular vertical.
As an astronomer, using a .space domain seemed like an obvious choice! And it makes my website more memorable.
elearning space acquired its name from the virtual location it represents. elearning space is our organizations name, but it is also the name for any virtual space where learners participate in the learning process. This is an elearning space.
I thought of it as childrens playground. It was by far the best option. It helps because its a domain with meaning, its a word that contains a concrete idea.
The .tech domain is communicative as it tells our users what our startup is about. It gives a strong first impression of what they will learn about when they land on our website. Technology is what makes us move and technology should be the first thing people think about when they see our URL or logo.
It was really easy! AI is a core technology in our product, so we decided to add that element as part of our product name. This made our choice for a domain name very obvious – only .tech!
.Space is not just a domain for us. It’s a part of us. Our users and supporters – Snovians, have always been a very tight-knit community. So, when it came to choosing a name for them, it really felt like we were creating a SPACE for them to work, connect, interact, find new people for their own projects that they are passionate about. It’s our space.
We decided to go for a more modern domain name than just a simple .com or .net domain, as we are all about innovation and set out to disrupt the industry. Also, it describes our business in the best way. We are Software as a Service Store!
I thought .tech made perfect sense given that the product is a tech scalable solution. I believe the .tech extension a great way to stand out from the other tech companies.
Being a neurotechnology company, we think the domain .tech perfectly fits our identity.
MojiPop.fun, is short, creative, and easy to remember. We wanted to combine fun and creativity to provide an entertaining experience to everyone, and so .fun sounded just right.
As a food-tech startup, the domain name kwaita.tech immediately communicates what we do. Our URL has become a message. We believe that in the future new domain names will become as popular as .com. With this unique URL, we show that we are there right from the start. Unique URLs are becoming more and more important to position and present yourself online.
For us, there is some kind of a natural connection. 3DSS is developing state of the art technology for facial recognition and the .tech domain is something that describes it well. So, now we have the possibility to use our URL as our company slogan: 3DSS TECH. It sounds simple and powerful, which is why .tech is our choice and for sure we will use it in the upcoming years also.
Ever since Josh Tillman had acquired the new moniker, Father John Misty, the domain FatherJohnMisty.Store seemed to be a great name for his merchandise store. The website easily resonates with his fan following all over the globe and has been a great extension to Josh’s new identity.
The Khalid store is a spectacular bridge that connects the star with his massive fan following. We wanted to give it a brandable name that is easily relatable by Khalid fans the world over. Khalid.Store was the most obvious choice and it has built a brand for itself very quickly.
The Dude Perfect merchandise has a huge fan base and the collection is constantly evolving with the addition of new products and styles. We needed an online storefront that would make these products easily accessible to the fans of Dude Perfect. We chose DudePerfect.Store because it was an excellent name to brand our store with. Also, it has been intuitively memorable for our dedicated fan following which is brilliant.
Shadow is fundamentally a high-tech company. The investors at Shadow have a strong technical background and the founding team has worked in some of the most advanced technology companies and industries before. We are proud of our tech roots and .tech reflects this origin.
Our designer Rudolf Ammann, who is a member of the editorial board, spotted the new .PRESS domain when we were making plans for a separate new website, away from the main university site. The choice helps to convey very directly what we are and what we do – we are part of a new wave of small independent and university presses that are experimenting with form, content, and method.
We wanted to promote only positive stories. Fun was the best choice for this. For us, FUN means Good and Positive. We Pre-registered Banter.fun from GoDaddy. .Fun is easy to pronounce as compared to other TLDs, and it leaves a great impression on our clients and sponsors.
A fellow author recommended the .Press domain. Karenlordrutter.press has become the one stop shop for my readers to learn more about my characters, my writing, the Appalachian Trail, and author events. It is also a resource for teachers using the book in the classroom. Readers can find more musings, adventures, and discussion through the blog tab. It has become a place to hang out and learn or merely enjoy funny videos and beautiful photos.
When we did our branding research, one of the primary goals was to transmit the fundamental emotion that will enable people to connect with our products: Fun. We were thrilled to find that we could use .fun as a suffix for our domain thereby completing our online branding concept.
We chose .SITE for better branding and because it is easy to remember. Ping-My-Site means to check my site. PingMy.Site is shorter as compared to pingmysite.com which is longer and is in fact, a premium domain name that is already taken.
From 2013 until 2015 we focused only on the Brazilian market. From 2015 we decided to serve clients outside Brazil, initiating a process of change of brand. In 2017, we adopted .HOST as our primary domain extension since it clearly highlights our goal and what we specialize in. It is a fantastic domain for us. Since we work in the technology space, we have always wanted to highlight the aspect of innovation and using a truly innovative domain extension like .HOST has helped us do that. It has worked very well.
Because our imprint is called Elsewhen Press (we’re a small press!), it seemed obvious that we should migrate our website to a .press domain. Although we registered the domain when it became available, we migrated our website to it slowly because at first most people were so unfamiliar with the idea that many frequently tried to add .co.uk or .com at the end. It is becoming better understood now though and is also a talking point when we share our domain address with people.
I wanted my site to be reflective of who I am and everything I do online. I had it set up as a regular blog in the past but recently I’ve set it up as a sort of hub so that people can follow or subscribe to the parts that they are interested in most. So, I have a section for my freelance writing, a section for my indie author posts, a personal blog that is for whatever I feel like writing about, and a section that covers everything else. I like that it is several sites within many sites and the .space domain seems to work really well with what I have set up.
We stand for innovation and the promise of a better world made possible by technology. CES® is well known as the foremost innovation event in the world & we are happy to have selected a domain name on .tech that conveys what we stand for in a succinct way.
We needed a simple yet brandable domain name for our official merchandise store. We chose .store because it aligned with our vision for this retail outlet as well as helped us create clear visibility for it. .store is refreshing and gives us a unique way to brand and promote our storefront.
Since SuccessValley is a tech startup, it’s more appropriate to use a .tech domain because it makes the domain name brandable, memorable and innovative. Our domain brand is helping us get registered members every day and currently, we are working to connect with Startup League to help position our unique brand in international conferences and events.
We have always been supportive of innovation and technology. And that’s how our company is shaping into become. Due to this reason, we decided to pick up a .tech domain. It is also an indicator of who we are as a company and where our expertise lies in. People have started recognizing us as a company that can work with various technologies and one that has diverse experience as probably compared to a .AI or a .IO company domain. It helps us reach a specific band of customers very easily as well.
As our company is called Lightly Technologies using a .tech domain was the perfect fit for us. It’s given us a short, modern URL that really stands out for emails and website links.
We saw that .tech is the best choice as we’re a tech-company – we could highlight our tech-expertise and involvement. Our page visitors would already know what the company is about and as it’s something new it might even be easier to remember. I think we made a right choice as .tech domain creates uniqueness and it’s easy to build a brand around it. Traditional ways are of course .com, but nowadays when most of the premium domains are already taken you have to be smart to find the right and suitable domain for your company. Companies should not live under the old dogma, where all domains should be built around .com, but rather find a smart solution, which highlights your creativity and focus. I think it mostly depends, who are your customers and what’s the business behind the domain, but for us working in enterprise and b2b makes the .tech domain a great way to be innovative.
We knew we wanted an online presence as a store and the .store domain seemed exciting and original. We get asked about our .store domain choice a lot so it’s a good talking point for our brand. We hope to benefit from this new and exciting domain style.
We opted for a .store domain because we wanted to clearly distinguish our eCommerce site from our content site, and the store extension helps in our organic search rankings. We also see more and more large brands utilizing .store domains and we felt it was a smart move for our business.
The word Sweetheart has everything I was looking for in a name and .store domain was the perfect addition to it, creating a cohesive image of what my business is about.
I chose a .store domain because we are an eCommerce marketplace platform for specialty brick and mortar retailers and the .store domain extension makes a lot of sense and adds relevance to our business.
We chose a .store domain because we are a store by yogis. We wanted this to be a super clear message to all our potential customers. .store was a great fit!
Our .store domain is great because it says exactly what we do. We are a store and we sell a sense of wonder. Our domain name is open and direct.
We already had a domain with our country code top-level domain but then we got a cool invitation to join Radix and the Startup League. We are marketers, yes, but also geeks and programmers and designers and very technology oriented and we want to create things. It just felt like a no-brainer to use .tech so that in the future if need be, we could do things that might not even be restaurant related. Who says we could not have a biotech company with this name? And it has worked, some people have asked us to do work that has indeed nothing to do with food and since the architecture of our platform is flexible, we can use it for markets like insurance or dentistry! At the same time, it also works for the restaurants to trust that we know what we are doing when we start talking about apps, AR, AI and other tech terms that other companies would not talk so much about.
Since ifna .com, ifna.net, ifna.org were already taken, we had to use ifna-int.org which was not really relevant. The .site extension sounds better and is easier to use. It is easily understood and works in our favour for our visibility
Being able to grab a three letter domain (on .host) in 2014 was a pleasant surprise!
As a UK web hosting company it totally makes sense to own a .host domain name. It also allowed us to shorten our domain name from 11 characters (ioxhost.com) and 13 characters (ioxhost.co.uk) to just 8 characters (iox.host).
I’m always an early adopter with technology, I recommend getting a .host in place for your hosting business while things are still in the beginning stages. In a year or two, it will be the norm, and you will be late
It was simple. We needed something that showcased the fact that we indulge in cutting edge technology and .tech was a no-brainer.
The choice of a .tech domain was appropriate at the time because we were fundamentally creating a technology development organisation. There are benefits of being able to distinguish our brand in the technology space.
I chose .tech because it communicates quickly and clearly that our company is about technology and it seems pretty cool.
We wanted a simplified domain that was easy to remember and embodies what we represent. Using a .tech domain was a natural fit not just because of our name but also because it described a future that perfectly matches our company vision: disruption.
We choose the .tech domain for a number of reasons. First, we owned the .com and .net domain for our company name but we wanted to shorten our name and that was not possible with those domain extensions. Second, we looked at other domain names like .io (which has been very popular) but we felt that io would seem confusing to those who were not from the tech industry. Thirdly, we chose to rebrand to Stronger International because it told the client what we did, but it still didn’t tell them what industry we were in. We liked Stronger but wanted people to know that we were in technology. The .tech domain name was a great solution. Our name became: Stronger.tech - short, powerful, and conveyed what we do and which industry we belong to. We love our domain name. We get lots of questions and compliments for it. It is unique, but so is our company. We would choose the name again if given the choice.
For me, .tech is important as it truly represents what we, at Sentient Machines, care about - developing the most cutting-edge technology in the space of Natural Language Processing. This is very different from building a consultancy business or what we traditionally know as a business since the focus is purely on innovation and technology.
Our .tech domain helped us showcase the tech DNA of our company. It has also been a way for us to create our difference with an unusual domain name. It has been powerful in search engine referencing as well.
Our name had Technologies as a suffix so our .tech domain reflects who we actually are – a technology company. .tech domain names are different and smart (two qualities that we wanted our business to reflect). .tech domains easily catch attention and so, it was an easy choice to select it for our business.
.tech is one of the most popular domains in the startup ecosystem worldwide. In particular, I got connected with various startup companies through the Startup League, the startup support program by Radix. Through the Startup League, we went to RISE (Hong Kong, 2017), where I met many entrepreneurs and engineers with similar mindsets. We exchanged contacts and hopefully, we will have a chance to collaborate in the future.
Daan means Damian plus Antoine (my name and the name of my co-founder). We chose .tech since we are a technology company and we really believe in progress through technology.
The unabbreviated name of my firm is actually Firedove Technology (although just about everyone, including myself, shortens it to Firedove). Ergo, the .tech domain name was perfect for us! Our entire domain name, including the extension, was our firm name. How cool is that? It’s really given us an edge over our competitors. People think we really know our stuff and it gives prospective clients the immediate impression that we are invested in technology. It has also made us much more unique in comparison to our competitors. A lot of businesses have a .com but when someone sees a .tech domain, it makes them pause and take a second look. .tech domains cut through the noise.
Populo means people in Latin. Essentially, connecting people through technology is at the core of what we do. Therefore populo.tech was an apt domain name for us. I think it will be very helpful in the next few years when we expand our product offering.
We have been able to set our ourselves apart as a platform in the business of connecting people, one job at a time. Our .tech domain has helped us yield positive results in our marketing efforts. The domain name has successfully enhanced our user engagements as it imparts a strong feeling of brand trust.
Our .tech Domain has helped us show our website visitors that we are dedicated to the technology that sits behind what we do and that our company revolves around technology. And so, it makes a great domain for our company.
Usually, people love our .space domain name! They say, “it’s cool!”. We personally like it very much as it specifies where our mind is set!
Not being common and fitting perfectly with our activity, the .space domain was a natural choice for us. As Space activities are increasing, I am sure the .space domain name has a bright future coming ahead.
Since our business is all about space technology, the .space domain name fits perfectly with our core competence and industry niche.
It was a simple choice. I always look for new trends, and I was aware of the new domain .space being available. So I thought that would be a great name – a space for the best dev teams! I think other companies should take advantage of innovative new domains such as .space too.
Since the brand is called Earthling, a .space domain seemed fitting. The ethos of the company is about making things better for individuals and the collective planet, in other words, making space for a new generation focused on health, wellness, and consciousness.
We chose .space because it is a clear and intuitive domain name that denotes a clean and uncluttered web address – just what we needed to get the Artecology name out into the world! However, Artecology is all about space, about volumes and areas in the urban environment and about our shared uses and experiences of these spaces with the natural world. I’m certain that this congruity between the name and purpose has also helped to reinforce our message.
We are a telecommunication company that utilises space infrastructure for serving its customers, this is where .space came in. Besides, we are an innovative startup and want to be different, we ride the latest wave of trends in the startup world, we move and adapt quickly, it is in our DNA and it makes us different from big elephant corporates, and an application-related domain is one of those things.
We chose the .space domain because loop.space was unique and provided an identity that was immediately identifiable. Furthermore, it allowed us to optimize our SEO/SEM to build brand value.
.store is going to be the future of eCommerce, it sounds very familiar to shopping online. We choose .store because we had a plan to set up a one-stop online store and it is perfect for our business. It sounds a bit different and new to customers and also defines our business effectively.
We choose .store because it’s simple and direct and it helps us to define our online retail identity and visibility.
At Twirl, we believe that every person is unique and their purchased products should be distinct as well. Further, Twirl’s philosophy of creating a sustainable cycle of fashion is new and innovative. In essence, we are a STORE with a difference. The .store domain, which in itself is unique, seamlessly fits in with our brand. The domain has helped us stand out in the eCommerce landscape.
Compared to the typical .com, I think .store sounds more unique and is more suitable for young independent brands and online stores. It stands out and clearly indicates what our website or brand is about before anyone arrives on our web page.
We chose a .store domain name because it was unique and refreshingly different from the standard .com/ .in, etc and it conveyed the message to our customers clearly about what we are- an online organic STORE! It has helped in creating our own identity to stand out in an otherwise crowded online marketplace for home-delivered organic produce.
We were making a store and it seemed like it would make sense to use a .store domain. We very clearly wanted Kono Store to be its own entity, apart from Input Club, even though some of the same people work on both projects. We also use a .club domain for Input Club, so it just made sense to follow suit. An interesting anecdote here is that we didn’t learn until after we had already started the business that Kono means “inviting” in Hawaiian, which is very fortuitous, as Kono is a very inviting store!
One of the significant challenges in getting your start-up running is to name it and find a perfect domain extension. Even though .com was available to us, we wanted to represent our-self as not just a t-shirt company, but a technology-driven company. Two new domain extensions were running the finale in our naming process – .Shop and .store. Both domain extensions are identical, but we chose .store as our domain extension, as well as the last name of the company, after running a couple of pronunciation tests. I am so grateful to have a wide range of new domain extensions to support our branding nowadays; else, our name would have been something else. You see, there is a significant difference between saying ThreadlyStore .com and Threadly.store. In our case, the company name and the website address are identical.
Onvent is short for online event. We felt that the .online domain name would support our brand identity by emphasising the online nature of our business.
I felt a .online domain name was the right fit for us: The collection itself is not a company or organisation and the domain ‘online’ describes just what the website is – Jerwood Collection’s online presence.
I think we are living in a time where people start to realize that there is more than just the .com domain. There are many new cool domains like .tech or .io, and since we are building an online platform, the .online domain made perfect sense. It also gave us the opportunity to team up with the Startup League, which has been an incredible partner to us at Web Summit.
It was good fortune that the .online domain name came up just at the time when we were redesigning and relaunching a new brand of the DAO journal in 2016. It fit our brand name perfectly because the word ‘online’ was already in our organization’s name. .online made our organization name relevant again, instead of making it sound a bit dated. It’s also a brilliant match for us because our organization name is our entire URL.
We felt the .press brand was a great fit for our media-focused workshops. We thought it stood out among other options and we really liked the fact that it was easily available.
We thought the .press domain made a good fit for the ‘vegan fast food’ image that we wanted to portray. Plus, we wanted to try something different with the URL.
The main reason I chose a .PRESS domain is because I prefer domains to be as short as possible; I believe this is best for positioning in the long run. Using a .PRESS gives our brand a domain name of nine letters (www.yogi.press) which would not be possible with any other extension such as .COM, .CO, .IO, .CO.UK, etc. Because then the domain would have to include the words YOGI and PRESS. (i.e. www.yogipress.io) Additionally, with Google search and social media working the way they are at present, it is time to stop giving so much importance to .COMs and pay more attention to positioning, optimization and above all, social value. Leading brands such as Proto.io are doing very well with their positioning despite not using a .COM domain.
It (press) has its roots in printmaking, with pressing the letters into the paper to be precise. So it has a direct link to what I offer as a graphic designer and a letterpress practitioner.
Press is a traditional term for fine art printing. I have admired many of my predecessors such as “Peace Press”. So when .press was released it was a natural fit!
Revelore chose to use the .press domain because of how elegant and integral it is. That elegance reflects some of our core principles as a publisher. Plus it simply looks damn cool on our masthead.
It was about making the best use of resources and thinking forward into the future. "Reckoning" is a popular word these days, what with #metoo and so many other injustices rampant in the world. "Press" is what we are; we publish, we make new writing and art available to the world. Succinctness and clarity only get more important in this content-drowned world.
Choosing .press was to indicate what we work with and also to do something “new”. We wanted to be the first ones to move to .press since it is not a common domain name in Denmark.
We wanted to create a platform that would serve as a single source to highlight the smart cities initiatives being undertaken in different parts of the world. The term ‘press’ refers to the media and we believed having the website titled smartcity.press would be the best way to indicate all that this platform offers.
As a technology company, we (Xpresso.tech) always wanted a URL that reflects the same. Before .tech domain, we would have resorted to having a name that reflects tech. Now we can be as creative with the name since the extension clearly positions us as a technology innovator. It really helps us getting identified. The .com/.co space is really crowded & availability was always an issue, with the new domain names that has been solved. Also, adding .tech to our domain gave an idea to developers/partners that they could use our technology inside their apps or businesses. I believe because these new domain names are still not very common, having a .tech domain adds to our image as an early mover and positions us as a cool company/product.
I honestly believe that .tech ushers in a new era of domain names. It gave us much more freedom in terms of choosing the domain name for IOSD and HackDTU as there were name-unavailability issues on other extensions. Also, there is less flexibility offered by other extensions, as compared to .tech. We truly believe that we share the same vision as .tech and hope to collaborate in the future.
