You would have to be living under a rock to not have heard about the upcoming U.S. presidential election. And if you so happen to live under a rock, then props to you dude, we don’t judge.
The internet has played an enormous role in the outcome of political campaigns in recent years. In fact, some claim that without the internet, President Barack Obama would not have been elected in 2008. No matter what you believe, there is no argument that the internet is the main source of information about political campaigns for most Americans.
Think about it: You can hardly scroll through a Facebook or Twitter feed without seeing a shared article or opinion about the upcoming election or current political issues. And that’s just passive information that you don’t even search for. But those who are passionate about getting involved can read news stories, follow Twitter feeds, join political discussions, or even volunteer to help out with a campaign—all online.
The internet offers a massive opportunity for anyone who is running for office or wants to promote a political cause or movement. But establishing a web presence that people will trust can be difficult without the right tools.
.DEMOCRAT and .REPUBLICAN domain names are just what you need to create an authoritative presence online. These New Domains offer a number of advantages for people and groups of all kinds.
Political candidates can create a striking online presence
Those running for public office can create a powerful first name-last name website that is memorable. While a generic domain may not be available for those with a common name, .DEMOCRAT and .REPUBLICAN domains are much less crowded and far more likely to be available. It also informs voters of your political affiliation right off the bat, so you can attract an audience that has the same ideologies as you do.
Party members can connect in an exclusive community
Want to connect with others in your political party to discuss issues and current events? Use a .DEMOCRAT or .REPUBLICAN website to create a space just for other party members. Having such a great keyword directly in your website URL makes it easier for people to find your website and join the community.
A strong domain can bring about a stronger social presence
If you have an existing social media presence that you want to take to the next level, forward a .DEMOCRAT or .REPUBLICAN domain name to it. This is a great way to legitimize your account and bring in new followers. Rather than asking others to just look you up on Facebook, give them a simple, memorable link that will direct them to your page.
Anyone who identifies as a Democrat or Republican can take advantage of these domains to create a strong web presence for themselves or their cause. This campaign season ask yourself: how will you make a difference?
