.ONLINE domain name: new horizons for international brands
Looking to give your international brand presence a boost? Then you need to consider registering a .ONLINE domain name, ranked 3rd in both international awareness and usage. Your .ONLINE domain name is sure to bring you the global awareness you’re looking for.
.ONLINE makes a strong worldwide connection
The .ONLINE domain name extension has been a hit from the start.
Upon its release (back in 2015), it experienced massive interest, hitting 38,000 total domain name registrations in the first 24 hours of its launch. Registered all over the world, .ONLINE quickly became one of the more recognisable new gTLDs, especially in Europe where visibility was high. By 2016, it ranked third in global awareness.
Today, .ONLINE ranks as the 5th most registered new gTLD. According to Radix, the registry which manages the extension, there are currently:
- 1 million+ .ONLINE domain names registered
- 65% of registered .ONLINE domains used by SMBs
- 126,300+ active .ONLINE websites
- 128 countries with .ONLINE registrations
With the word “online” recognised in languages across the globe, from China to the United States, .ONLINE domain names deliver high recall value, making .ONLINE an ideal choice for businesses looking for a way to establish international brand recognition.
.ONLINE domain name "a key alternative to .COM"
.ONLINE is seen by many as a smart, innovative alternative – or compliment – to .COM. “.ONLINE [is a] great alternative when your exact name is not available in .COM,” says Sandeep Ramchandani, CEO of Radix. With .ONLINE, still a relatively new domain name space, finding exact match domain names is much easier than it is with .COM. Exact match domains can potentially give your site a marketing edge.
“The next couple of years will be very exciting for Radix as we work towards making .ONLINE one of the key alternatives to .com, .net, etc.,” says Ramchandani. “New domain extensions [like .ONLINE] are making it possible for businesses to pick keyword rich, meaningful domain names that will serve them in the long run.”
Get .ONLINE and build your international brand presence!
As Radix's own numbers indicate, .ONLINE is already well on its way to becoming a top choice alternative to .COM.
Besides ranking 3rd as the most recognisable new gTLD around the world, it's number one in France, Germany, Poland, and Vietnam. And although English is the top language for .ONLINE sites, German, Chinese, Russian, Dutch, and Spanish are also popular, putting to rest any doubt that the .ONLINE domain space lacks global recognition.
.ONLINE is a proven and safe choice for small businesses looking to grow their international brand presence.
