.GAY is proud to be different

By David Gold

Despite less than a year on the market, .GAY is currently one of the most interesting domain extensions. With its community-centric approach, .GAY is going above and beyond domain-industry standards to elevate and protect LGBTQ people online.

Every June, LGBTQ communities and allies join together to remember the 1969 uprising in New York City when the crowd at the Stonewall Inn fought back against abuse and oppression. Like the rainbow flags that brighten windows in homes and businesses in June, the .GAY top-level domain extension is like a digital Pride flag for your website.

Since its long-awaited launch to the public in September of 2020, .GAY has been all over the news, released its own web series, and worked with global LGBTQ luminaries like Star Trek actor George Takei, pop superstar Adam Lambert, and pioneering tennis icon Billie Jean King. So far, more than 10,000 .GAY domain names have been registered by artists, entertainers, nonprofits, SMBs, global brands, and proud community members who want to help create a vibrant, more-inclusive internet for LGBTQ people.

Here’s what makes .GAY different and why you should get your own .gay domain.

Introducing DigitalOcean at Name.com

Last year when we launched our new Name.com brand and website overhaul, we told our users that we wanted to create a simplified experience at Name.com that puts usability first. Since then, we’ve worked to identify our users’ pain points and build solutions to alleviate them.

Some of the biggest feedback we received while conducting interviews with our users was the lack of a quality cloud hosting experience provided by domain registrars. So when we began planning the launch of our own cloud hosting solution, we knew that a generic cloud hosting product would not provide the kind of seamless experience our users are looking for. We wanted to offer the best of the best.

That’s why we’re proud to announce our new partnership with DigitalOcean to provide access to an industry-revered, best-in-class cloud hosting experience, all managed via your Name.com account.
