The number of people who use online dating sites to find their perfect match... their soul mate... their better half. Well, it's insurmountalbe. That number has increased exponentially over the past decade, and there is no sign of a plateau. And let's face it, the market is becoming a bit saturated. Dating websites cater to people all over the world, regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, or religion. There is a dating website for every person, and the .DATING TLD offers a unique namespace for each of these sites. There really is no better way to help ensure continued membership growth than to register a .dating domain name for your brand.
The goal of the new .dating gTDL is to provide a new/better way for online dating sites to make their websites easily identifiable to their consumers and clients--and to bolster consumer confidence in their brand. Registering a .dating 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 .dating domain name you want before it's taken.
