Gone are the days of hard-bound yellow pages. No one flips through the pages of--well, hardly anything anymore. With smart phones and tablets literally at every fingertip across the globe, people want access to information right now, right where they stand. The new .directory generic TLD enables online directories (of any kind) and information repositories to provide that information on demand. Registering a .directory domain extension for your brand will help you grow your business, by letting your customers and prospects know exactly who you are and what you do. And it will help boost advertizing and help you promote your business (or yourself) more effectively online, increasing search rankings for your business. Be sure to get the .directory domain name you want before it's taken.
