When you think of family, it likely evokes feelings of support, love, safety, and a strong social network. And the term family isn't reserved for blood relatives, but also friends, co-workers, and other loved ones. No matter who your family is, the new .FAMILY gTLD extension offers a more relevant domain option, which can be registered by any individual, group, or business, for any reason. Use .FAMILY to create an online network to support the families you belong to, whether a corporate family, a charity family, or a family of loved ones and friends.
The goal of the new .family gTDL is to provide a new/better way for families and businesses to make their websites easily identifiable to their consumers and clients--and to bolster consumer confidence in their brand. Registering a .family domain extension for your brand will help you grow your business, by letting the world know exactly who you are and what you do/offer. And it will help enhance advertizing efforts and help you promote your business (or yourself) more effectively online, increasing search rankings. Be sure to get the .family domain name you want before it's taken.
