Today kicks off the start of the Early Access Program for the .BLOG domain, which will reach General Availability on Nov. 21, 2016. .BLOG has already brought in around 950 registrations during Sunrise Period alone, and is expected to become one of the most widely registered New Domains yet.
Why choose .BLOG?
Anyone who has or is interested in starting a blog can benefit from a .BLOG domain. Not only does it clearly indicate the type of website visitors can expect, but it also serves as a memorable domain ending. Because .BLOG is also a brand new domain extension, it’s a less crowded space—meaning there’s a better chance that you can get your first choice of domain names.
Using the Early Access Program
Interested registrants can get their first pick of the best domain names .BLOG has to offer by registering during the Early Access Program. Leading up to General Availability, individuals and companies have the option of registering the domain they want before anyone else by paying a premium price. As the days count down to the public release of the domain, the Early Access pricing will continue to drop, so you can decide the value of the domain, and how much you’re willing to pay for it, yourself.
You also have the option of preordering your .BLOG domain. Although there is no guarantee that we’ll be able to secure the domain for you before someone else gets it, placing a preorder can increase your chances of getting your top choice of domain name.
