Customize your domain
There are more options for custom URLs than ever before. Rather than tacking on numbers or unnecessary punctuation to a .COM, you can register a New Domain that is far more likely to be available - exactly the way you want it.
Create memorable URLs
URL and email forwarding are the easiest ways to start using your domain immediately. You can forward your domain to an existing website, and you can create email addresses that will forward messages to your existing inbox.
The internet just got a whole lot bigger.
Did you know that there are other domain extensions besides .COM, .NET, and .ORG? Many people are surprised to find out that are the now hundreds of options when it comes to choosing a domain for your website. Some domain extensions are dedicated to specific purposes, like .MOBI for mobile websites. Others are geared towards specific industries, like .TRAVEL for the travel industry or .JOBS for HR departments.
Beyond these "generic" top level domains, there are also country code domains, which are extensions based on specific countries or geographic locations. Some extensions like .TV, .ME, .CC, and .WS are open for anyone to register while others, like .IN and .JP, are restricted only to those who live or work within their associated countries.
What is a gTLD?
gTLDs, or generic top level domains, are meant to be general purpose domains and are some of the most common TLDs on the web. These domains can typically be registered by anyone, although a few extensions are considered "restricted." Restricted domains can only be registered by specific groups of people who meet certain eligibility requirements. Some common gTLDs are .COM, .BIZ and .INFO.
What is a ccTLD?
ccTLDs, or country code top level domains, represent specific countries, like .IN for India or .JP for Japan. Some ccTLDs are restricted only to those who live or work in these locations, but many (like the .IO domain) can be registered by anyone. Some ccTLDs have been reimagined in creative ways. For example, the .TV domain which originated as a ccTLD for the country Tuvalu (yes, it’s a real place) is now commonly used for websites that feature video- or TV-style media.
What is a nTLD?
In June of 2012, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) revealed their plans to create a program that would launch hundreds of new top level domains (nTLDs) and expand the internet as we know it. The first four registry agreements were signed at an ICANN conference just one year later and a new era of internet was born.
Now there are over 500 nTLDs (more commonly known as New Domains) available, with over 24 million New Domains registered as of 2017. Registries like Donuts, and Radix allow the registration of thousands of New Domains each day, all of which serve as huge opportunities for businesses and individuals around the world.
The way we think about domain names is changing completely. With so many extensions now available, your chances of finding the perfect domain will be better than ever. Choose from descriptive domain choices like .SHOP, .APP, and even offbeat extensions like .NINJA and .BUZZ. New Domains can describe your passion, your personality, your profession, or anything else that matters to you.
I can't understand what you mean by ICANN...
The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, is a non-profit organization based out of California that is recognized by most major government organizations. ICANN is responsible for a lot of behind the scenes policy and technical work for the internet. They are involved in a broad range of projects, but are directly responsible for the nTLD process. If you'd like to learn more about or become involved with ICANN, please visit their website.
How much do nTLDs cost?
The cost of a domain is largely influenced by the registry (or administrator) of that particular TLD. Some nTLDs only cost a couple of dollars while others cost thousands. You can check out our pricing list to see how much particular nTLDs cost.
Can I create my own nTLD? I really want to have .ilovenamecom. If so, how much does it cost?
Unfortunately, the application period for nTLDs has closed. While ICANN hasn't ruled out having another application period sometime in the future, it probably won't happen for the next couple of years if it happens at all.
If you are thinking about applying, it's probably best to start saving now. This past application period cost $185,000 to enter!
If a woodchuck could chuck wood, how much wood would a woodchuck chuck?
We have no idea, but we hope that someone will register the domain woodchuck.math or woodchuck.science and provide a very thorough explanation.
Why would I want to register a nTLD?
nTLDs have completely changed the domain name space. Those who are early adopters of nTLDs are more likely to get a short, memorable domain that is relevant to you or your business. Instead of coolnewapp.com, register coolnew.app or newapp.cool as a fun, memorable URL.
