When browsing the Internet I come across websites with interesting domain names more often. It was very unusual to my eyes, so accustomed to the standard .com, .net or .ru to see a website https://seo.london/ The domain name is short and clear. Then I found this cooking blog http://mylovely.kitchen/ I started wondering if such names are possible for a website name. And yes, these are New gTLDs- new Top-Level Domains.

сreative domains

 

What are gTLDS

New Top-Level domain names were launched back in 2014. The reason for that was the need of website owners for interesting and creative names for their websites. With the appearance of new domain zones the website owners can now choose from a variety of domain names. Now we are not limited to generic or national domains. The list of possible domains is now huge, ranging from .nyc, .london, .paris to .solutions, .agency, .media.

The “trick” with these new domains is that you can easily understand who owns the website and what kind of business the website offers.

The launch of new domains has greatly simplified the choice of website names for many businesses and companies. Now among new domains we can find .photography, .travel, .kitchen, .attorney, .online, .group, .services . What I mean here is - if part of the company’s name contains the word “group” in it, for example, the website owner can pick up a domain name corresponding to the name of his company. My company has done so. We wanted to see the company’s name (Simple Solutions) in the name of our website. Having studied the possible options, we recently moved from www.sisols.com to https://simple.solutions/  Now how creative is this?!

Generic top-level domains were originally intended to be thematic. The idea was that the .com domain would be used only by commercial companies, and .org - by non-profit organizations. Over time the idea was forgotten. With the appearance of new domains, the idea got a second whirl. The website names are now self-explanatory.

How much do new domains cost

If you have never bought a domain name before, I can tell you that some domains can cost like downtown apartments. For example, a domain natalia.com with my name in it costs $ 195,000. This is of course the main generic domain, but... The cost impresses - it is very expensive!

Here is the cost of some domain names from the new zones:

  • wedding.online - 50,000 USD;
  • instagram.me - 4,650 USD;
  • travel.xyz -15,000 USD.

Usually Premium domains are that expensive!

There are also cheaper domain names:

  • ideal.discount - 42 USD;
  • teacher.services - 85 USD;
  • sports.club - 96 USD.

What do users think about new domains

So far, many Internet users, as I see it, are wary about websites located in the new zones. When searching for a service or product on the Internet, most of us are more willing to visit websites with familiar .com, org, .ru or .by.

In fact, and it is proved by many studies, Internet users are more interested in the content and quality of the website. As a rule, users do not pay attention to the domain zone at all. I think, eventually we will get used to the new domain names. And they will no longer surprise us with their uniqueness.

New domain names and SEO

Google claims that the algorithms don’t consider the domain name of the website when ranking search queries. New gTLD domains have no advantage over old domains, and vice versa. According to Google, the most important thing in ranking is the quality content of the website, and how useful the website is to users. And I completely agree with this!

Let’s summarize

No doubt - the appearance of New gTLD domains has made the Internet more interesting and more attractive. Creative and interesting names of websites look nice. And become usual to us.
