What is the .markets generic Top Level Domain Extension?
Market is such a flexible term. It can be used to describe the economy and general commerce, specific areas of business or just the general marketplaces. Similar to how the word market caters to different things, the new .markets gTLD extension will also be able to cater to different markets worldwide.
For stock exchanges, .markets domains give you a distinctive venue on the Internet where you can trade equities, bonds and commodities. Companies such as the TSX, NASDAQ, FTSE and S&P can use .markets domains to create their brand's own particular niche online. Governments and different boards of trades and, ministries and departments of commerce can also use the new .markets gTLD to create domains that provide information on the status of the economy. As an example, you can create CanadianSector.markets to provide information on Canada’s different economic sectors or describe foreign exchange rates with a ForEx.markets domain. Governments and local industries can also collaborate with one another to create a domain that represents and contains information on all the different industries and markets available in a given country.
The .markets gTLD works well for large corporations or organizations but .markets domains can also be used to describe historic and culturally rich marketplaces. Registering .markets domains will be ideal for famous food markets such as St. Lawrence in Toronto and Borough Market in the UK. For those planning on starting new food markets, a domain name in the .markets gTLD will be perfect for you and will help promote it locally and internationally.
From governments to historic marketplaces, a .markets domain is an essential tool for you and your brand! Pre-register your .markets today!
