URL forwarding is one of the most practical and useful domain tools available, and with New TLDs coming soon, it’s about to be more useful than ever. If you’ve got an existing web presence and you want to bolster it with New TLDs, you’ll want to get familiar with URL forwarding.
For instance, let’s say you’ve got a great YouTube channel. You could brand your channel with a memorable domain that takes advantage of a new extension like .VIDEO, .MOVIE, or .VIDEO.
Or what if you’re looking for a new job, and you want to add an extra layer of legitimacy to your LinkedIn profile? Sounds like you’re a perfect candidate for .ENGINEER, .LAWYER, .ACCOUNTANT, or the dozens of other profession-based New TLDs.
