The first law of the internet is that when you need help with something, you do an internet search. And when people need any kind of legal help, an internet search is their first step. Make sure that they can find you and your practice. With millions of licensed lawyers, attorneys, and law firms, a .attorney domain name immediately differentiates you or your firm as focused and professional, regardless of your location or area of expertise.
Are you looking for the right domain name to get your law based business online? Look no further than the domain that does exactly what it says on the tin: .ATTORNEY!
When you buy a.ATTORNEY domain name with Blacknight, clients will know exactly what they’re looking for just by looking at your web address. It’s the perfect way to get your name out there, even if you’re looking to get a legal website going while you’re still in law school. Whether you register your actual name with .ATTORNEY or use it to represent your law practice, law school, or other legal organization, you will know that you have the right the domain.
No! Anyone in the legal profession can register a .ATTORNEY domain with verification or approval. .ATTORNEY domains are perfect for lawyers, law firms or anyone who wants to identify themselves with the legal profession.
The new TLDs such as .ATTTORNEY offer the opportunity to register short, memorable and relevant domains. So, if you look at TLDs such as .attorney, you can immediately see the benefit of the context it provides. For example, if you are an attorney in London, you could use something like hirealondon.attorney
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.
