Starting this week, we’re starting a new segment on the blog called ‘Domain of the Week’. As you’ve probably guessed, we’ll be discussing a different domain extension every week. With so many domains out there, this new addition to the blog could help you find the perfect one you’ve been looking for.

 

This week, it’s all about .APP!  It’s short. It’s simple. It’s super easy to remember.

If you have an app or game on the App Store or Play Store and want to get the word out about it, try .APP. If it’s not on an app store, your own website is a great place to showcase it. A simple website could be set up with information about your company, how to use the app, hints and cheats, how to contact your company, and how to download the app, then pair the website with this domain. You don’t even need a large website to do this, and you could even add a blog or news page using our Giga Web Hosting.

With .APP, you’ll need an SSL Certificate due to the HSTS, which all Google owned TLDs are in (read more here), meaning anyone who visits your website knows it’s safe and secure. This encourages more downloads as people know they can trust it.

Top 5 reasons to register .APP:

  1. It works for every business
  2. It tells customers exactly what you’re offering
  3. It’s not as common as .COM so there’s a good chance of your desired domain name being available
  4. You can link to your app on whichever app system you support
  5. It allows mobile users ease of access to download your app straight to their phone

Have a look at bear.app, sleeper.app, and dropshare.app for inspiration. You can also watch videos like the one below on how other businesses used .APP to their advantage.
