To someone in need, “help” can be the most welcome word in the English language. Whether operating a new tool, navigating a software application, or dealing with tough issues in our personal lives, finding a reliable source for assistance can make all the difference. Who couldn’t use a helping hand every once in a while?
Technology and the Internet have introduced a flood of helpful information and functionality for users – from wikis to live chat. Ironically, these advances have also increased the pace at which we need to learn, adapt, and keep up. The good news is, for every question or challenge, new help and guidance is consistently surfacing online.
.HELP will be the world’s online hub of supportive content and resources to positively serve Internet users. Offering assistance on a variety of channels, .HELP will showcase useful content and technologies as well as businesses in service professions such as healthcare, therapy, charity, and advice.
By appending .HELP to your domain name, you are telling wary online travelers that your website is the destination they’ve been searching for. Whether you have services, products, or information to satisfy their needs, you are clearly and quickly communicating the purpose of your website, a kindness that your customers will thank you for.
With the rules of technology and the Internet constantly changing, the need for current and accurate online help for users will always be in demand. .HELP is the platform for the businesses and services that deliver this assistance to get their offering in front of those that need it, when they need it.
The .COM space is exhausted of meaningful names. Perform a quick attempt to find a domain for a new venture, and you will immediately see how Internet naming, as it stands today, is limiting the creation of new brands. We are forced to a) restrict our brand name based on the remaining available .com names, b) seek out a name in the unpredictable secondary market, or c) settle for a mediocre domain name that threatens our visibility and credibility on the Internet.
As an increasingly tech-savvy population continues to find new ways to connect and do business online, good names will only get more and more difficult come by. New, specialised gTLDs, like .HELP, are the answer. They will introduce a whole new realm of highly relevant and intuitive naming alternatives for registrants to tap into.
Find and share peace of mind with the perfect .HELP 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.
