Cloud is my business, .CLOUD is my domain

Over the last few years a large number of new domain extensions have become available on the market. Many of these new extensions are keywords that are commonly found in legacy top-level domain registrations such as .com or .de. A prime example of this trend is the word “cloud”, which according to corporate Registrar CSC has risen in popularity over the last few years, thanks to the growing importance of cloud computing and cloud-based services.

As the cloud becomes increasingly embedded into our lives, it is clear to see how the .cloud domain extension provides clear advantages to companies operating in the cloud computing space. Launched just four months ago, .cloud has taken the domain market by storm with over 55000 domains registered from over 130 countries.

How Video Marketing (and .VIDEO) Can Help Achieve Your Business Goals

video-domain-blog-post

Video and marketing go together like peanut butter and jelly. You could attempt to consume them separately, but the effect wouldn’t be nearly as satisfying, and what’s the point of doing something if you’re not going to do it right?

In May, YouTube celebrated its 10-year anniversary which got us all thinking about how far video has come in the past decade. Once upon a time, a business looking to create video content required an entire marketing team and a big budget. Creating video content wasn’t necessarily a priority for smaller businesses, which was fine because consumer expectations were different as well. This was an era before smart phone technology ensured that almost everyone has immediate access to the necessary tools to both create and watch videos.

1&1 launches .WALES domains amid St. David’s Day celebrations

Wales-and-Cymru-Domains

Nominet has just launched two brand new domain name endings especially created for the Welsh Internet community – .Cymru and .Wales – now available to everyone. Over the next few days, we will be showcasing some of the first 1&1 .Wales registrants, and sharing their ambitions for their new .Wales Web identity.

Hot on the heels of recent .London and .Scot domain launches, the case for .Wales is clear. New research commissioned by Nominet, the registry that provides the .Wales domain, shows significant interest in the new online home for Wales, with two-thirds (65%) of adults in the country saying they would want to highlight their Welsh connections through a dedicated .Cymru or .Wales domain name if they were launching a new personal or business website. Previous research from Nominet found that 70% of consumers and 59% of businesses in Wales believe it should have its own domain space, bringing it into line with other countries across the world.

A business Web address is just as important as any business street address. With the demand of mobile and online purchasing increasing, your online address should also be carefully considered.

From business industries, hobbies to professional services and more, the new domains present a large realm of new possibilities now available for business owners when registering their online address. Perhaps the most interesting category of this new domain launch is the geographical domain names. Starting with .UK in June, .London next month and continuing with .Scot and .Wales later this year, individuals will soon have the option to register a regional domain name.

The Backup Plan Your Domain Can’t Live Without

The Backup Plan Your Domain Can’t Live Without

Domain owners have enough to think about without worrying about the back-end operation of their online property. After all, that is someone else’s business, right? In fact, it is. It’s the business of a domain registry (which is different from a registrar like 1&1).

But, what would happen if a domain registry goes bankrupt? Should the owner of a top-level domain then fear for their website address? Don’t worry: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which is responsible for the assignment of names and addresses on the Internet, has an emergency plan up its sleeve for such cases.
