Domain .DESIGN

Public registrations of the .design domain were launched on 12th May 2015. Registrar Top Level Design that is behind .design domains knew from the very beginning about demand from the target audience so they set the price quite high and they did not make an aggressive marketing campaign. Thanks to that 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 favorite in China (8,5 %), Germany (7,2%), and the UK (5,3%).

Who is behind .design domains

Seven companies tendered for the .design domain. In the end Top Level Design won the auction. Top Level Design is based in Portland, Oregon. They also own .wiki, .ink and .gay domains. You can buy them all here 🙂 

British CentralNic is responsible for technological aspects. CentralNic is the longest operating domain registry 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. But this domain just finds its target audience. 

Despite zero promotion mainly professionals and businesses started to register .design domains. In comparison with other TLDs, it were just scraps, but after few months the total count of .design domains has already been interesting. However, the most important part is that our customers created long-term content on their websites. 

After Top Level Design offered us to extend cooperation and we made business and technical analysis the decision was to go for .design domains.D
