If you’ve tried to get a .com domain name, you know that getting your first — or second, or third — pick can be almost impossible. How in the world was [insert your name].com taken?!
But you’re not alone. According to get.tech, 65% of people don’t get the domain name of their dreams. Maybe you’ve settled for a .net instead. Or even had to rename your product or business due to domain unavailability, like 32% of people (lame).
But if you’re in tech, you may want to consider the next big domain extension used by Consumer Electronics Show, Viacom, BlueDot and plenty others.
We’re talking about .tech. Those companies have one (ces.tech, viacom.tech, and blue.tech respectively), and you can get one of your own — with a short name suited to your business, so it’s way more memorable than a long and convoluted .com. Use it for your tech product, event, blog, startup, portfolio, and more. You’ll have your pick of names that truly represent what you do, instead of settling for a subpar .com.
For an added incentive, you can save big on .tech domain right now. If you head over to the Mashable Shop, you can choose to register and use a .tech domain for one year for $2.99, for five years for $24.99, and for 10 years for $39.99 — that’s 80%-94% off.
