Start your own .SHOP with just a few clicks
At Blacknight, we want to help all businesses, big and small, to grow. That’s why we think .SHOP deserves a special shoutout on Domain of the Week. Selling to customers and starting an e-commerce website has never been easier with this short and simple domain.
Top 5 reasons to register .SHOP:
1. Thousands of big brands use it to sell merchandise, such as Netflix
2. It’s so easy to remember
3. You can have a separate website from your shop with a different domain (for example, .COM)
4. It’s a great keyword for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)
5. It lets customers know you’re open for business
Retailers around the world can use this domain due to the fact that it’s universally recognised and there are no restrictions associated with it. It immediately tells customers what your website is for and what they can expect. Imagine this amongst a list of common .COMs and .IEs in search results – current and future customers can spot your website straight away, and it beats through the clutter and noise of websites with common and ambiguous domains.
Plus, with a .SHOP domain, you can create a professional email such as email@example.com instead of a Gmail or Hotmail email. Customers tend to trust emails like firstname.lastname@example.org over those from email@example.com, which is long and super complicated. If you want to take a more American approach, you can grab a .STORE domain alongside your .SHOP website and email. To add another domain, all you have to do is log into your account and click the Domains box which is to the right of Services. Then look to the top right of the screen and click Add New, type in your desired domain in the search box, then simply add it to your cart and purchase your brand new domain. It couldn’t be easier!
If you don’t want to set up a whole new website for .SHOP, have a look at our ShopBuilder plans and simply create a one-page shop that can be added to your current website. You can even manage your shop from your phone and sell on social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook, as well as other platforms like Pinterest and eBay.
Have a look at madeincarlow.shop, atomi.shop, and therailwaystation.shop for inspiration, and to see how these businesses used their .SHOP domain to their advantage.
