The design industry is huge business, not only in the US, but across the globe. The new .design gTLD extension is great for interior designers, web designers, architects, artist, clothing designers... the list really does go on. The way a designer (of any kind) markets themselves and/or their business, definitely depends on the type of design services they provide. Dot DESIGN is also perfect for boggers who write about design and related topics. This new gTLD offers a unique online home for design industry professionals--of all kinds--which enables better marketing to potential clients. Dot design has also become a community of support and collaberation for designers across the globe.
The goal of the new .design gTLD is to provide a new/better way for designers-- individuals and companies--to connect and share their ideas, and market themselves to people around the globe... It will make your website(s) easily identifiable to others. Registering a .design domain extension for yourself and/or your brand will help you grow your business by letting your community know exactly who you are and what you do. And it will help enhance advertizing efforts and help you promote your business (and your deals) more effectively online, increasing search rankings. Be sure to get the .design domain name you want before it's taken.
Do restrictions apply to some .design domain names?
