New Top Level Domains, New Possibilities
Tips for new domain extensions at 1&1
Protect your name, before someone else does
To ensure your company name or the name you want for your website isn't used by a competitor, it's important to use the pre-reservation phase as soon as possible. Express your initial, no commitment interest at 1&1 now.
Easy to remember- brevity is the soul of wit
For years, many names have been occupied on the Internet, forcing website owners to choose either abbreviations or longer domain names. These names were difficult to understand or hard to remember, but with the new domain extensions, there are new possibilities to have a name that's short and sweet!
Better search engine placement
Clear domain extensions offer you the better possibility of ranking higher in search engine results- they are found faster and thus bring more prospects and new customers.
Clear differentiation from your competitors
The new top level domains offer a great advantage- the ability to more clearly describe the focus of your web presence than ever before. Your domain name can now easily communicate your industry or geographic location.

What should you know about new top level domains
What are nTLDs?
TLD stands for top-level domain. This is the official term for the part of the domain name that appears right at the end. The most common top-level domains are .com, .net, .org, and country-specific extensions such as .co.uk, .de and .fr. The 'n' in front of TLD simply stands for 'new'. Starting in November 2013, a wide range of creative new domain extensions became available. These nTLDs allow for a huge choice of potential combinations to form individual domains.
Whats the purpose of the new domain extension?
Before nTLDs, searching for suitable, available domain names was becoming increasingly difficult. The nTLDs are intended to provide a wide range of suitable domain options to meet the needs of websites, brands and organisations. The days of scarce domains are numbered! With the new domain extensions, businesses and individuals will have a far greater choice when it comes to choosing a suitable domain name. Why not register a new domain extension that perfectly fits your company and business sector? In this way, you can differentiate yourself from the competition while also building customer confidence!
Why should I pre-reserve my preferred domains now?
New domain reservation works on a 'first come, first served' basis. This means that the first person to pre-reserve a particular domain will have the opportunity to register it as soon as its terms and conditions become available. Once you pre-reserve a new top-level domain, we'll keep you informed about all relevant dates to ensure you never miss a deadline. If several prospective buyers are interested in the same domain, 1&1 can add them to a waiting list, giving everyone the best possible chance to register their preferred domain as soon as it is activated.
Does domain pre-reservation cost anything?
No, pre-ordering is absolutely free. Its only purpose is to keep you up to date with all relevant news and inform you when terms and conditions become available.
Am I obliged to purchase domains I have pre-ordered?
No, simply pre-ordering a domain does not obligate you to purchase it. Domain pre-orders are free, without obligation or risk. Once price information and terms and conditions become available, you will be contacted to confirm whether you wish to proceed and pre-register your chosen domain.
