.APP - It's a Big Deal!
Google Registry's .APP entered General Availabilty on May 8. It was a hugely successful launch. Google Registry confirmed that 17,000 domains were registered during the Early Access Phase and over 30,000 domain names were registered within the first three minutes of General Availability. There are now over 242,000 .APP domains worldwide. Plus, at Google's recent I/O 2018 conference, they gave away over 7,000 free .APP domains to all attendees which will help spur usage and innovation. HEXONET also achieved a very high success rate in helping our customers secure their requested preordered domains. There are already many early adopters that are leveraging their new .APP domains. You can view some examples at: Get.APP This is excellent exposure to help drive further consumer awareness for new gTLDs.
What makes .APP so appealing?
1) Get a Memorable Domain. Get Discovered.
The name says it all. Find a brand new .APP name to match your company or product, so you can market your apps with a unique and relevant URL. Now, with a unique domain, it’ll be easier for people to find your app.
2) Security is Paramount
.APP is included on the HSTS preload list, making HTTPS required on all connections to .APP websites — no individual HSTS registration or configuration required. The result is built-in web security for you and your users. HEXONET is pleased to offer a wide selection of SSL certificates that you can configure for your .APP domain.
3) Engage Your Audience
Use your .APP domain name to keep your audience engaged and up-to-date about your app — from relevant, trustworthy download links to release notes, reviews, and more.
Get Ready! .LLC
Registry operator Afilias is launching .LLC - the new top level domain created for Limited Liability Companies in the USA and their online presence! .LLC is being positioned as the best-known TLD for LLCs and aspiring entrepreneurs on the Internet.
