The .FAMILY domain is here!

The thing about family is that they’re always going to be your family, no matter how many times you cringe at your grandpa’s cheesy jokes or screen your mom’s calls. But if you’re lucky enough, the people in your family are your biggest supporters when the going gets rough and your biggest cheerleaders when you accomplish great things.

Family is kind of a really big deal.

That’s why we’re so excited about the new domain extension .FAMILY, which has reached General Availability as of today. From sharing family photos to keeping in touch with loved ones through a host of .FAMILY email addresses, there are so many possibilities for what you can do with this domain.
