SAN ANTONIO, Texas, February 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
New Domain extension .SPACE will allow customers to get attractive relevant web addresses
If you are a freelancer, a hobbyist or a creative professional, chances are that you may have harbored aspirations of showcasing your work in your very own space at some point of time. You likely created a website and spent hours trying to find the perfect brand name for it. With the launch of the .SPACE domain extension (http://claimyour.space), it is now possible (and very easy) for you to create your website as your personalized online space.
New domain extensions like .SPACE are the latest revolution brought about by ICANN (governing body of the Internet). Domain extensions are strings that follow the dot at the end of your domain name. Until now, domain extensions like .com were a silent entity in your web address, taken for granted in their neutrality. However, with the launch of new TLDs (Top Level Domains-the technical name for domain extensions) the possibilities for getting fresh, exciting domain names with category-relevant domain extensions are endless.
Johns.SPACE makes a catchier web address than JohnsSpace.com. Then again, DIYNews.space makes a more attractive and memorable web address than DIYNewsSpace.com.
.SPACE was launched last week by Radix, a start-up founded to run new top level domain extensions. The .SPACE domain extension primarily caters to 'passionate, driven individuals and groups who want to carve out a personalized space online.' It is specifically targeted at freelancers, professionals, hobbyists and small business owners who can find attractive brand relevant .SPACE names without drilling a hole in their annual budgets.
.SPACE domain names are available with over a 100 registrars across the world including GoDaddy.com, who has already contributed heavily towards registrations.
Sandeep Ramchandani, business head of Radix commented, "Whether you are an enthusiast or a professional, there is a .SPACE for everyone. Keeping in mind the price sensitivity of creative entrepreneurs, freelancers and new businesses, domain names in .SPACE have been priced very competitively, making it amongst the more affordable domain extensions available. Our vision is that everyone should have their own .SPACE on the internet."
.SPACE offers many interesting and "brand-able" names. In the past few days, names such as sushi.SPACE, interactive.SPACE and worldwide.SPACE have been registered and there are many more great names available. Some passionate enthusiasts may find kungfu.SPACE and waterpolo.SPACE their perfect website addresses. Those who want to show off their skills online can opt for a ballet.SPACE or a medi.SPACE. If you are interested in promoting your mission, perhaps conservation.SPACE will be your pick.
Customers seem to have taken well to the .SPACE extension with thousands of .SPACE names already registered in a diverse array of categories.
Radix is a leading participant in the new gTLD program, applying for registry rights to 20 new gTLDs and securing uncontested registry rights to .website, .press, .host, .tech, .site and .SPACE. Radix is Asia's largest new gTLD applicant, playing a substantial role in the global diversification of the Internet namespace.
