According to a 2010 survey more than half the American population gets its news online... this number has increased exponentially since then and will continue upward, expanding across the globe. The new .NEWS gTLD extension is the perfect extension for news any type of organizations—television, radio, daily newspapers, alternative weeklies, political publications, as well as local publications. Registering a targeted domain for your brand allows you to reach your readers/viewers--and potential readers and viewers--with an identifiable and marketable industry-specific TLD.
The goal of the new .news gTDL is to provide a new/better way for businesses to make their websites easily identifiable to their consumers and potential readers/viewers--and to bolster consumer confidence in their brand. Registering a .news 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 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 .news domain name you want before it's taken.
