Whether it is looking at a review for a holiday, product or service, the majority of people turn to a review website before making a purchase of any kind. However, an online review has always been quite a contentious issue with internet users. A trustworthy online review is of great value in today’s society, yet it can often be very hard to come by.
Registering a .REVIEW with Blacknight allows you to set yourself from the crowd of all the other review based websites. It’s quick and easy to remember. Consumers will not only be able to find your website easily, but they’ll also know immediately that it’s a trusted source for product reviews.
It’s the perfect way to set up a .Review email address with our email hosting or create a perfect content-rich .REVIEW website using our easy to use website builder. Your opinion matters, get the domain that matters.
The scope and influence of a review has changed dramatically over the past few decades. This is because as there is an increasing number of choice relating to products and services being offered to consumers, a reliable and easily accessible way is needed to help them choose what to buy, what concert to see or which restaurant to choose. For some, an online review can be the deciding factor in making a decision whether it is a small one or one that can be potentially life-changing.
.REVIEW domain name extensions provide a secure, purpose-built space for those with an interest in the online review sector to establish and conduct their reviewing activities, with unrivalled accessibility to the review they are searching for, or wishing to produce. There are no restrictions on who can register a .REVIEW domain name.
Examples of .REVIEW Domain Names:
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.
