Why .news?

Assert your expertise with a .news domain name

One of the most evocative terms on the internet the world over, .news immediately brings to mind headlines and investigative reports. It also enjoys a high level of trust: a site that uses a .news domain name is generally perceived as a trusted source of information. Buying a .news domain name, then, is a way for news entities to boost their credibility.

Bring together your community with a .news domain name

The .news domain ending is considered a generic domain ending. Available to individuals as well as organizations, you can use yours to share different types of news — in real time or after the fact:

  • Current events
  • Conferences ;
  • Job offers
  • A social media livestream

Your website becomes a space for centralizing and sharing information with your community.

A .news domain name: an option open to everyone

The .news domain ending is popular because domain name registrants get a short, impactful, and streamlined URL that's easy to remember. Registering a .news domain name works on the usual "first come, first served" system and it only takes a few minutes to buy a .news domain name.
