When you hear someone say "Doctor" you immediately think of a medical professional who holds a medical degree. But there are many types of doctors and while this term could be used to describe an M.D., a Ph.D., it could also be used to describe a subject matter expert who specializes in any given area (e.g., "the plant doctor"). Because of this range of application, the New .doctor gTLD is an open registry domain namespace meant to provide a relevant and unique TLD for all definitions. Dot DOCTOR can be used for doctors, health forums, publications, subject matter experts, etc.
The goal of the new .doctor gTDL is to provide a new/better way for doctors and SMEs to make themselves and their websites easily identifiable to their consumers and clients--and to bolster consumer confidence in their brand. Registering a .doctor 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 .doctor domain name you want before it's taken.
