If you're an online retailer and there doesn't seem to be a fitting domain extension for your line of business, the new .STORE gTLD extension is the perfect solution. This new domain is a place for the online retail market place to call home. Dot store can be used by any business that wants to enhance their online presence with a more identifiable domain extension than .com. But... the new .store extension can also be used by storage companies, data storage facilities, even bloggers who write about stores, storage, and related topics. The new .store domain offers a broad, widely applicable, term perfect for any brick and mortar store trying to establish or enhance their online presence.
The goal of the new .store gTLD is to provide a new/better way for so many businesses to make their websites easily identifiable to their consumers and clients--and to bolster consumer confidence in their brand. Registering a .store 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 .store domain name you want before it's taken.
