.ECO is the new domain ending for businesses, governments, non-profits and individuals committed to positive change for the planet. Instantly recognised around the globe, It’s a trusted symbol for those working toward a sustainable future. Whether it’s a campaign to protect a special place in the world, the launch of a new business or product that will help people make better choices, or a new address for an existing online presence, .ECO will help organisations, businesses and people get recognition for the good work they do.
Businesses, via the .ECO Champions Program are already using .ECO to share their work on sustainability, while non-profits are using .ECO to reflect their role in the environmental movement.

To activate your .ECO domain you will be required to complete a .ECO profile and make a commitment to environmental action.
Yes, you can. If you care about the planet, this is a great way for you to show it. This new ending for your web address is open to anyone committed to positive change for the planet. To register and activate a .ECO domain name, you need to make a commitment to environmental action. This simple pledge ensures that .ECO endures as a trusted symbol for those working toward a sustainable future.
Companies, non-profits, individuals and governments from all over the world who are committed to positive change for the planet. From independent environmental consultants to national brands, .ECO is being used as an emblem for a sustainable future.
Your domain name should tell a story about you. You put it in your email, on your brochure and your business card. What story does it tell? Are you proud to be a dot-whatever? Just like your work on the environment, a domain name can be something you’re proud of.
The new .ECO domain is a simple way to show you care about the planet and to connect with others who share your values.

Yes! You can upload your websites files and database to your new hosting plan with Blacknight or, if you don’t have the time we’ll do it for you. Talk to our migration team today about moving your website.
No. We are more than happy to offer domain registration services only.
Blacknight is a full-service domain registrar and hosting company, and for optimum convenience we recommend you use us as a one-stop shop! However, it is not necessary to have your domain registration and hosting with the same company.
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.
