Register a .DESIGN Domain

The .DESIGN Domain

The public registrations of the .design domain were launched on the 12th of May 2015. The registrar Top Level Design, who is behind .design domains knew from the very beginning about demand from the target customers so they set the price quite high and they did not make an aggressive marketing campaign. Thanks to this, the number of .design domains grows steadily.  

Currently, more than 120 thousand .design domains are registered. More than 50 % of registrations are from the USA. It is also favoured in China (8,5 %), Germany (7,2%), and the UK (5,3%).

Who is Behind .DESIGN Domains

A total of seven companies wished to acquire the .design domain. It was eventually acquired by Top Level Design in a private auction. Top Level Design is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, USA. Its other well-known domain endings include .wiki, .ink, .design and .gay. You can buy them all here 🙂 

British CentralNic is responsible for the technological aspects. CentralNic is the oldest operator of domain registries in the world.

Why We Offer .DESIGN Domains

We offer .design domains from October 2020 thanks to a contract with CentralNic. We have never promoted it because it is quite expensive. This domain just finds its target audience. 

Despite zero promotion, mainly professionals and businesses started to register .design domains. In comparison to other TLDs, this ending was not as common, but after a few months the total count of .design domains already started to become interesting. The most important part is that our customers created long-term content on their websites. 

When Top Level Design offered us an extension of cooperation and we analyzed our business and technical data, we decided to go for it.
