"Top," of course, refers to the highest level: the best sales, the best services, the best products, etc. This concept of excellence has proven popular in China, where "top" is strongly associated with innovation. Send a strong signal to internet users with a .top domain name: position your site as a leader in your field. This domain name also brings to mind rankings, like "top 10" or "top 5."

Assert your identity with a .top domain name

A .top domain name is original and impactful. It also offers greater advantages than domain endings like .com or .net, which tend to be crowded with many domain names already registered.
