Ever go to register a domain and the results you get back are… taken, taken, taken for every name you try? Super frustrating, right? We’ve all been there. You want to start a website or blog to keep your friends or fans updated, but all the good .COMs are owned by someone else. You can try to buy the name from the existing owner if you’re willing to spend an arm and a leg, but who has that kind of cash on hand?
Less Time Shopping, Shorter URL
You could toil away at the .COM time- and money-sink, or you might consider one of the hundreds of new TLDs that have come online in recent months. A really short and descriptive option to consider is .NEWS. If you’re a blogger, a podcaster, or just someone with something interesting to announce, .NEWS makes it simple to get out the latest info with a short and memorable URL. URL shorteners are great in a pinch, but for long-term campaigns, think about using a link that’s clear and precise.
Here are just a few examples of cool uses for .NEWS:
- Point to your posts when live blogging the next Apple keynote
- Show off your newest selfies on Instagram
- Announce that baby bump to your friends and family
- Direct people to your fantasy football league’s leader board
- Hand out your short new URL at a conference
The .NEWS extension is really flexible, and we look forward to all the great things you’ll do with it. Got a great idea on how to use .NEWS? Leave a comment below.
