What is the .health generic Top Level Domain Extension?
Nothing is more important to our daily lives than our health and wellbeing. Echoing this is the fact that searching for health information is the third most popular online activity (Source: Pew Internet), and why one
of every 20 Google searches are health-related.
The new .health domain is an extension for brands, organizations, and individuals that provide high-quality health and wellness products, services and information.
Whether you’re building a business, developing a new product, or starting a new blog, a .health domain is an immediately recognizable source for health-related content and is extremely relevant to healthcare and wellness practitioners, health-related publications and resource sites, medical associations/hospitals/health centres, fitness and nutrition professionals, pharmaceutical companies and more.
Identify your website as a source of relevant health information with a highly targeted .health domain extension.
