Free Pre-Registration of Shop-Domains
ICANN's preparations for the launch of New Top Level Domains are in progress. The sunrise period of Shop-Domains starts at 30th June 2016.
What are Shop-Domains and why you need such a domain name?
If you are active on the internet then chances are there that you have already heard about Shop-Domains that are specialized domain names under pre-registration phase right now. In this post, I will be telling you bout .Shop domains in more detail, how these domain names work and also if there are any benefits of using these domains or not?
What are Shop-Domains?
Normally, when you access any website, you have to put an extension in front of its name like .COM, .NET, .ORG etc. The domain name ending at .COM is called dot-com domain and similarly if a website is ending with .Shop, it will be called a Shop domain. I hope that this will be enough to clear your idea about Shop-Domains but I suggest you to keep reading if you want to know some more things about these domain names and how they work.
How Shop-Domains work?
Many people find it difficult to understand how these domain names work? Well, this is no rocket science as the Shop-Domains work according to the same principle that is applicable for any other domain name in the world. The only difference is that, it ends with a different web extension and that is the main reason why people find it strange. Letís just say that you have a website where you provide information about different things and for convenience, you have purchased .INFO web URL for your website so for anyone to open that website, proper address with extension needs to be provided. The website address will go like this; www.your-website-address.info. Similarly, if you intend to sell products on a website then you can purchase .Shop domain name for your website too and the address will look like; www.your-website-address.Shop.
What is the purpose of Shop-Domains?
The purpose of using Shop-Domains is quite clear. The very first thing that comes to mind is that, these domain names offer a distinct identity to a Shop website. You donít need to go for .com domain name when you can purchase a Shop-Domain for your website where you intend to sell products. This will definitely characterize the online world and people will find it easier to lookup for the things that they need. A person who wants to open an online Shop should prefer registering Shop-Domains instead of any other domain name that is available in the market, as the target group underestands by its intuition, that a Shop-Domain will shop a shop at the web. There are certain benefits of Shop-Domains that will be discussed below.
Is there any benefit of using Shop-Domains?
You must be wondering whether there are any benefits of using Shop-Domain or not? Well, there are many benefits that a person can get by going for Shop-Domains. The very first benefit is the variety of options. If you wanted to register a particular domain name but that was not available in .com universe, it must be available now as a parallel .Shop universe has been discovered. Another benefit is that, the specific URL of your website will bring more customers towards your website and I must mention here that search engines will prefer to rank your website at a higher position due to uniqueness and matching results too.
