For fun-lovers. For adventurers. For everyday people.
Express your visual offering with a relevant domain name.
Whatever the occasion, we depend on pictures to capture the most precious moments of our lives. At weddings and birthdays, graduations and first days of school, these snapshots in time will later become our best way to take a trip down memory lane.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Especially in today’s society where they increasingly mark the routine of our everyday lives. We shoot them, post them, and share them widely on and across the Internet. Why send in writing what can be more perfectly expressed through a photo? The availability of camera phones and mobile apps makes photo sharing fun, easy, and a great way to portray our personal style and unique perspective to the world.
.PICS will become the online space for sharing the storyboard of your life. Providers of photo-related services, equipment, technology, and information will all find this domain the perfect label for their offering.
Appending “.PICS” to the end of your domain name will tell Internet users that your website will support them in their pursuit for better picture taking and sharing. The credibility of being a member of the .PICS online space will go a long way with anxious consumers looking to entrust this very important part of their lives to a business or service provider.
One day soon, Internet users across all platforms will instinctively turn to the .PICS domain for richer, more engaging experiences as they share the images that define their lives. The presence of a dedicated space will encourage even more growth in the way that we capture and share our personal stories.

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.
