It’s time for the financial industry to have its own corner of the internet. That starts today with the exclusive .finance domain, which is for anyone working in any financial industry related business.
People don’t trust their financial and monetary decisions to just anyone. Your new .finance domain shows that you’re a fiscally minded organization in all aspects of your business. Whether your clients need help funding large purchases or managing an investment portfolio, they can rest easy knowing that you’ve set them up for success.
Now that you have your finances in order, it’s time to get your online presence in order with .FINANCE. The .FINANCE domain is perfect for a wide range of financially based businesses. Examples include companies that offer loans, mortgages, credit cards, accountancy services, payroll, or any other financial services. When you have a .FINANCE domain, your clients will know you’re the right place to apply for a loan or get their finances in order. And a bonus of using .FINANCE is that if you have “finance” in your business name, you can save on characters and make it really easy for people to remember your .FINANCE website address or .FINANCE email address.
No! Anyone can register a .FINANCE domain name and that opens up a wide range of options for start-up financial based businesses. INspire trust and familiarity with your clients by getting this domain!
TLDs such as .FINANCE offer the opportunity to register short, memorable and relevant domains. A .FINANCE domain is perfect for financial advisors, mortgage brokers, financial institutions, personal lenders, traders and more.
The term ‘generic Top-Level Domains’ (gTLDs) describes long-established domains such as .COM, .NET, .ORG, and .BIZ, as well as hundreds of ‘new gTLDs’ which have appeared in recent years, such as .BLOG, .IRISH, .DESIGN or .ROCKS.
These types of domains are called ‘generic’ to distinguish them from ‘country-code TLDs’ (ccTLDs) such as .IE or .FR.
The main benefit to choosing a new gTLD (generic Top-Level Domain) such as .BLOG, is availability. The older long-established domains like .COM have millions of registered domain names, and it can be difficult to find a memorable, meaningful name which has not already been registered by someone else. The new gTLDs have opened up hundreds of new namespaces, with new opportunities for great domain names.
The second benefit of new gTLDs is that many of the new domain extensions are valuable keywords in their own right, and not merely a redundant suffix. A new gTLD is a more efficient. Compare BlueSuedeShoes.com with BlueSuede.shoes.
Yes, Google and other search engines rank new gTLDs the same way as the ‘old’ gTLDs.
The general rule is to make sure it’s relevant to the business, service or information you’re providing. So if you’re selling shoes, something like yourcompany.shoes would be a good start.
The question of whether to migrate an established website to a new domain is one that requires careful consideration and planning. If your website is established and you’ve put a lot of effort in promoting your current domain name then we would not advise you to suddenly switch your website to a new domain, irrespective of the TLD. You could start by simply redirecting the new TLD to your current domain name and move to the new TLD once a proper migration plan is in place.
