The .WEBSITE extension has entered the General Availability phase, therefore now it is possible to order/apply for domain names within the: .WEBSITE extension/suffix. Please contact our support via e-mail or use the contact form in order to buy .WEBSITE domains.
The purpose of the .WEBSITE domain is to provide an online home for Internet users across the world. Generic and universal in meaning, the .WEBSITE extension can be used by anyone anywhere to define the virtual nature of a site. The new .WEBSITE domain will be perfect for businesses, organisations, commercial activities as well as communities and individuals. It is not restricted to a geographical region and can be used virtually globally. Technology-oriented sites, in particular, may find the .WEBSITE domain attractive.
.WEBSITE is a new generic Top-Level Domain (Computer / Tech gTLD) announced by ICANN, the Internet domain authority. The New gTLD Program`s goal is to enhance competition, innovation, and consumer choice. You can see it as your opportunity to get that perfect domain which has been taken by someone else. The introduction of .WEBSITE domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .WEBSITE domain will become public and registrations will be available to everyone (General availability).
If you are not a brand owner, before General availability you are allowed to take part only in the first phase and pre-register your desired domain names within .WEBSITE. The use of our gTLD pre-registration module is free of charge and without any obligation to buy later on. We will keep you updated on future developments related to your preregistered domains, including information about pricing and regulations, once these have been announced by the registry responsible for a given gTLD. Please note that pre-registration of .WEBSITE is not a queue. Although we will try our best, we cannot provide any kind of guarantee that pre-registration will eventually lead to successful registration of your chosen domain within the .WEBSITE extension.
If you wish to secure your rights to a specific domain name, please choose our Managed TMCH Submission service which offers trademark owners a simple yet efficient way to monitor and protect their brands. It is also the only way by which trademark owners can participate in designated Sunrise periods.
For non-trademark holders Pre-registration of .WEBSITE will be available until General availability.
The definitive .WEBSITE domain does not require explanation. It will be perfect for any site, especially technology-related, anywhere across the globe. The .WEBSITE address can be beneficial to businesses, groups, and individuals that offer web hosting services, website design, engineering, programming, blogging or other activities that might not be represented by other Top Level Domains. Memorable and crisp, the .WEBSITE extension will also be perfect for any content related to web services.
To distinguish your virtual identity with the .WEBSITE domain, consider pre-registering a domain name that will be best for your virtual needs. Pre-registration is free and non-binding, and you will receive relevant updates on the domain so you can be ready when it becomes available for registration.
