When people are looking for the best deals, your .deals domain immediately tells them they’ve come to the right place. They won’t need to comparison shop because they’ll know immediately that your site is the best place to get the deal they’re looking for.
Increase your online revenue with a .deals domain from Blacknight. Appeal to selective shoppers, and stand out to your target market. By using a keyword in your domain name, this top-level domain is an extra SEO tool. So, if you look at TLDs such as .DEALS, you can immediately see the benefit of the context it provides. For example, if you have an online discount store, you could register something like online.deals
Seal the .deals and maximise the impact of your business name online with a .DEALS domain name.
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.
