What types of web domains can I register with 1&1?
1&1 offers a wide range of domain endings. Classic TLDs like .ca
are great for your business website. But did you already hear about the new top level domains? Now you can also register web domains as .online
or .site for much more creative domain names.
Why should I pre-order the .web top-level domain?
For those who have already had an internet address for a few years, it makes sense to reserve a new .web domain. With a brand new web domain extension, an array of opportunities will open up for both your website and company – even if your website has already enjoyed some success.
The new .web domain is particularly worthwhile, for example, if your preferred domain has already been assigned. The new .web domain extensions also mean that it is once again possible to choose short, concise domains that don't include any numbers or hyphens. With the .web TLD, you prove to your customers that your company has something to offer – whether it's a product, a service, or information. Use the new .web domains to offer your customers added value under an enhanced brand name. Your brand image and SERP ranking will benefit from the positive impact that a .web extension can have on the search engines.
Do not hesitate to reserve a new .web domain; with 1&1, you can do so without having to register. Additionally, our offer is obligation-free. Once you've decided on your .web TLD, go ahead and register!
Tip: It's well worth pre-ordering your .web domain ahead of the large crowds. This way, you can be sure to secure your desired domain.
How can I reserve a .web domain with 1&1?
Reserving a .web domain with 1&1 is a quick and easy process. Firstly, check that your desired domain is still available with the 1&1 domain check. If so, select it and reserve your .web domain by entering your contact details. The pre-order is now complete.
1&1 offers a free reminder service with each pre-registered web domain; as soon as your desired .web domain is available, we will notify you. We can then register you at the appropriate registry.
Is the pre-order free for .web domains?
Yes, purchasing a .web domain in advance is free with 1&1. By pre-ordering your .web domain, there are no extra obligations; you are in no way obliged to register a pre-ordered domain. By pre-ordering a domain, you are simply ensuring that your desired domain does not get snapped up by someone else. If you would like to buy the web domain, you can do so as soon as 1&1 has notified you of its availability, saving you valuable time.
When will the .web domain be available to register?
Your .web domain release date is just around the corner! To secure your web domain's availability, it's recommended to pre-order with 1&1. With our 100% free-of-charge reminder service, we'll let you know when your desired domain has been released, allowing you to secure the domain you want at an early stage.
How do I choose the perfect .web domain name?
Choosing the right domain for your individual needs is not so easy. It should accurately reflect your company, but also be search engine-friendly at the same time. The new .web domain can be used by anyone – whether a company, an organization or a private individual. However, there may be restrictions on who can register other domain extensions. Take the .food extension for example, this may have different restrictions compared to .music and so on. Which conditions apply to which domain depends on the place of distribution.
With the new .web domain, there are plenty of desirable domains available, such as "welcometothe.web", for example. The most important thing is that your domain name suits the goods or services that you provide. When creating a website for your company, your company name should appear in the domain – even with a .web TLD. If you work as a consultant or a coach, your name is probably your brand. In this case, you should include your name in your domain.
Another key thing to remember is that your domain should be memorable – this is particularly important for spreading the word via word-of-mouth. Short and catchy domains are easy to say and are far more memorable than long, complicated ones. Also remember that some names are protected by copyright, such as the following:
• First and last names
• Brand names
• Work titles
• City titles
Consider which .web domain you want to use well in advance, as it cannot be altered once the registration is complete. Each domain is a fixed address on the internet.
Tip: If you're not satisfied with your domain, you can easily cancel it and order a new one – simply get in touch with 1&1.
