Register domain .SITE

Domain .SITE

A .site domain is the fifth most popular domain in the world. There are 1,7 million registered domains (as of December 2020). Most .site domains are registered in China (37%), but the domain is also popular in the US (20 %) and Russia (9%). In the Czech Republic, a .site domain ranks eighth in the popularity ranking.

To the public, the registration of a .site domain was launched on the 15 of July 2015.

Who is behind .site domains

The five companies were interested in running the domain – Google, Donuts, Top Level Domain Holdings, Interlink, and Dotsite Inc (a subsidiary of Radix FZC). In the end, the Radix won it in the private auction.

British company Central Nic is in charge of the technical background, which is the longest-running operator of domain registries in the world. For example, CentralNic also takes care of a .sk domain.

WEDOS company is a direct registrar. We send all requests directly to CentralNic. There is no mediator between us. We have a contract with both CentralNic and Radix FZC. We are able to solve any potential problems very quickly and right there, where it is needed.

Why we offer .site domains

We wanted a .site domain mainly for our English speaking customers. The .site word has a lot of meanings in English. In addition, the domain is short and easy to remember. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the interest among Czech and Slovak customers. Customers registered over a thousand .site domains during the first three months from the start of registration of new domain suffixes.

The domain belongs to the Radix company, with whom we negotiated for a long time because of a .online domain. We managed to negotiate very favorable conditions, that also apply to the .tech domain. Thanks to that, we can offer the domain for such an unbeatable price.

Is .site domain for you?

The English word „site“ has many meanings. Also, it is widely used in colloquial speech, especially on social media, and refers to website. The word website is a bit long, so the abbreviation site is often used and appears even in more professional texts. Especially when it comes to quotes. 

Universal domain – If we look at more than 120,000 active websites from more than 180 countries, that run on a .site domain, we find out, that everyone uses it in their own way. It has no clear specific use, in contrast to a .store, .space or .tech domains. It serves as a universal domain. There are e-shops, personal and company presentations, communities, magazines, blogs, online applications, just everything. 

With a .site domain, you get your own place on the internet. It is not related to any country, idea, or topic. It is neutral and universal. This is the biggest strength of this domain suffix.  

The site as „sítě“ – We can find a special use for a .site domain on the Czech market. If you add diacritics to the word site, you get the word „sítě“, which means „net“ in Czech. So it could be the Czech alternative for one of the most well-known generic .net domains, whose original purpose was for internet service and connectivity providers.

So why don’t take advantage of it? If you provide internet services or connectivity and need a website for a company presentation or an advertising campaign, then the .site domain is here for you 🙂

On the English market, for example, companies that offer the sale of building sites can use a .site domain.
