We all long to connect with others, and to be part of a group or community--so we can share life's experiences with people who have common interests and understand us. Whether the group is your family, your town, volunteers, a support group, a book club, your church, charity, or your hobby group/club, the new .group gTLD is brilliant because it allows groups to identify with members and prospective members. It can be used to personalize a domain name, gain visibility, and assit with promotion(s) with a built-in keyword. Use .GROUP to design a more memorable domain name.The new .GROUP gTLD is the perfect for networking within a particular group and/or community, celebrating events that are happening within a certain group, strengthening ties between or within groups/communities, and helping members of different groups communicate.
The goal of the new .group gTLD is to provide a new/better way for networks and communities--of all types-- to make themselves and their website easily identifiable to their members--and to bolster consumer confidence in their brand. Registering a .group domain extension for your brand will help you grow your business, by letting the world know exactly who you are and what you do--and offer. And it will help enhance advertizing efforts and help you promote your business (and your deals) more effectively online, increasing search rankings. Be sure to get the .group domain name you want before it's taken.
