.ONLINE continues to resonate with Internet users

While we did see some other success stories after ICANN’s initial launch of the new gTLD programme, from the start, .ONLINE was different.

At launch, it experienced a record breaking 38,000 registrations, closing out the first year with 350,000 total registrations.

Adopted by several reputed brands, .ONLINE became instantly recognisable, especially in Europe where visibility was particularly high.

As of today, over 660,000 .ONLINE domains have been registered. Radix, the registry behind .ONLINE, reports that its popularity is due in no small part to the following factors:

  • .ONLINE ranks highly on awareness and usage. From China to the US, India to the UK, .ONLINE is popular around the globe.
  • It has high-recall value. Customers are able to make an instant connection with it.
  • .ONLINE is seen as a smart and innovative alternative – or compliment – to .COM. With .ONLINE, finding exact match domain names is much easier, providing registrants a clear marketing edge.

After a very successful launch, .ONLINE’s momentum has shown no signs of slowing down. All evidence suggests it is still one of the best domain name investments you can make.
