While the .com is the most popular domain extension, a lot of people don’t know that .web was the original choice to represent websites on the Internet. While .com has seen a lot of success, the .web domain extension can potentially be more popular than .com. After all, we say web all the time when we refer to the Internet or anything online related. Surfing the web, webinar (web seminar), on the web, web browsers and web services, the term web represents anything and everything online. The .web domain extension is a great choice for any business that operates on the web.
One of the great things about the .web domain extension is how it is a generic term like .com, .net or .ca. This allows domains under the .web gTLD to be flexible, allowing anyone with a website to use it. A few examples of domain names using the .web gTLD are: surfthe.web, services.web, shopping.web and meetings.web.
Aside from getting the domain name you’ve always wanted, some businesses want to protect their brand on the Internet. The .web is expected to see immediate success so it is advisable for businesses to pre-register and protect their names on the .web gTLD.
