What if the internet were a meeting place like any other, in the professional world as well as the personal? It's more in the latter category that .date falls and this domain ending is frequently used by dating websites, the number of which has exploded in the past decade. By choosing a .date domain name, your dating site will be immediately identified as such, and will also rank well in search engines when internet users are searching for sites like yours.
A .date domain name to highlight your identity
The .date domain ending is easy to adopt, since it doesn't require any particular conditions to register, and it's less saturated than traditional domain endings like .com or .net. It will be much easier to find a domain name for you that highlights your business. Don't wait too long, though — there are many businesses in this area, and consider going for an original domain name so you don't pick one too similar to a competitor's.
The .date domain ending is used around the world
Like other generic domain endings, .date is available from anywhere in the world, which can give your site an international outlook and encourage internet users to sign up: thanks to you, they'll be able set up dates and meet people in any part of the world.
