The domain extension can be considered the last name of your domain. Why choose a name other than a classic '.com'? First and foremost, because you can find very simple names available for a generic domain extension relevant to your product or service, such as .agency, .studio, .solutions, or .marketing extensions for a creative business.
By choosing the right extension for the mission of your site, you basically make sure to check the following aspects in one go:
the domain name becomes easy to remember - choosing .agency, .studio, .solutions or .marketing will quickly position the site in the correct category which includes yourservice
branding boost and fewer errors - in addition to the fact that the domain name is memorable, short names and using the same main domain will help increase the notoriety of your brand. Another advantage is that a shorter domain name reduces the risk of being misspelled by users who remember your brand.
you increase 'professional recognition' by the destination of use which is very clear - no one can enter a site with the extension .agency, .studio, .solutions or .marketing without expecting a team to solve a certain problem.
If we were to give some examples of creative businesses that could greatly shorten their domain name using a generic extension would be the following: lemonadecreativeagency.com which could be lemonadecreative.agency, acreativeagency.ca becomes acreative.agency and so on. We also notice agencies that already use generic extensions as is the case with those from browsermedia.agency.
The extension "agency" is a broad term that can include many businesses and professions, such as marketing agencies, web development, insurance, real estate, advertising, acting or modeling. The new .Agency TLD is a great choice for any of these companies to create a memorable alternative to the many .com, .net or .org web addresses.
Where do you buy generic
.agency, .studio, .solutions or .marketing extensions?
There are several registrars for 'last name' .agency, .studio, .solutions or .marketing including domains.google.com, godaddy.com, 101domain.com, name.com and other sites. The purchase price for a simple available domain example such as 'smart-branding.studio' starts at $ 20 per year, which varies depending on the chosen domain name and the registrar from which you purchase it.
If you decide to choose a .ro, .net, .com, .eu, .mobi, .tv, .org or .info domain extension, you could greatly shorten the launch flow of your site by choosing the nshost site. .ro for the domain registration service and you could save important budgets!
We make a simple cost comparison for a domain like new-app-launch.net, which costs 59 ron / year if you buy it from NSHOST compared to the 14.14 € for the first year - 69 ron (18.14 € from the second year = 90 ron / year) if you buy it from GoDaddy (according to the price displayed on the date this article was designed). It greatly simplifies the process of domain renewal and hosting if you purchase it from your hosting service provider, choosing a hosting plan according to your business: shared hosting, VPS hosting or even cloud hosting
