Why get a .photo domain name?
Like many generic domain endings created in the 2000s targeting very precise industries (.info, .immo, .hotel, etc.), .photo was launched to relieve the bottleneck in traditional domain endings like .com and .net, who were approaching saturation. The .photo domain ending was specifically conceived for photography professionals and amateurs, whether photographers, galleries, or manufacturers.
A built-in international orientation with a .photo domain name
With a name that clearly explains the type of content that you'll find on the associated website, the .photo domain name is easily understood anywhere in the world and is open to any business or individual without any special registration conditions. This domain ending is appropriate, then, for photographers looking to present their work in order to find customers for their work as well as for amateurs that want to keep an online gallery of their pictures. This domain ending could also be used by businesses or organizations with a link to tourism to create a site where potential customers can find images of a city, a hotel, a restaurant, etc. online.
Promote your business with a .photo domain name
As with other domain endings, .photo gives a more professional touch to your site while integrating it to a larger online community: the community of internet users who practice, use, or enjoy photography. The .photo domain ending also offers you the advantage of being well indexed by search engines whenever a user searches for images online related to your area of activity.
