As the official ccTLD of the United States, .US has been deemed “America’s Internet Address,” allowing individuals and businesses to establish a memorable identity within the United States. Whether you’re a business based in the U.S. or an international business with a presence in the States, .US can work for you.
Understandably people are frustrated by the lack of good domains available in other extensions and they are forced to dilute their name and their brand just so they can have a .COM for their business. With .US there’s no reason to settle, you still have an opportunity to get a great name in a recognizable extension. An extension that establishes a strong geographical identity for your brand.
If you’re one of the lucky ones with a good .COM, you still have an opportunity to secure your name, brand, and presence with a .US domain.
Another perk of having a .US is you get a listing in the US Directory, a free service that lists your .US websites on zipcode pages, helping build and advertise your business. You can apply for this listing here.
Currently Name.com has .US registrations for just $3.99 (holy cow!), so now is a great time to let your .US speak to your customers. Really, if you’re doing business in the United States, it just makes sense.
