The new .shop domain name extension is the definitive online address for all things shop and shopping.
This New gTLD is not only the natural choice for online services and shopping sites, it is also a great fit for offline retailers building an online presence. Dot shop identifies your website as an ecommerce or retail website to Internet users all around the world. The .shop domain works just as well for shopping malls, shopping reviews, guides, blogs and more! This new domain, .shop, is one of the most sought after TLDs to come out of the new gTLD program. Already registrars around the world have accepted pre-registrations in the hundreds of thousands.
The goal of the new .shop gTDL is to provide a new/better way for retail businesses to make their websites easily identifiable to their customers--and to bolster consumer confidence in their brand. Registering a .shop 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 .shop domain name you want before it's taken.
