Many of us probably don’t know that there is a domain extension named .one which is similar to other Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) like .com, .net, .org.This extension was proposed in ICANN’s New gTLD Program and became available to the general public from May 20, 2015. One Registry (a subsidiary of One.com) and ARI Registry Service are the registries for the domain.
Now the question is, why would you use .one domain extension? Let’s find out in this article:
Clearly, .com is the most popular and most used domain extension in the world. Take for example, your company name is xyz and you would like to create a website for your company. Let’s assume you choose the name xyz.com, unfortunately you find out the name is not available. Again, you wish to use gTLD only. In this case, you can go for .one extension. The price is similar to .com or .net though. Have a look at the price chart from here.
Then again, you will always be worried about SEO or Digital Marketing. I must mention that, for SEO domain name doesn’t matter a lot actually. You will get great result in search engines automatically, if the content of your website is of high quality. Therefore, using .one domain is almost equal as the other popular ones.
As of February 2016, .one was the thirty-seventh most registered domain name on the internet with 50,600 plus registrations. You can imagine the growth of this domain extension by knowing that, One.com was the second highest register for .one out of its 107 accredited registrars.(Source: Wikipedia).
Now-a-days, as an alternative of .com many are choosing .co for their websites. Although .co is a Country Code Top Level Domain(ccTLD) yet it’s being used mostly as gTLD these days. That is, anyone can purchase this domain from anywhere in the world. Also visitors can visit these .co sites from any corner of the world. If you are running a business company/website then you can also go for .biz(business) extensions.
Therefore, for those who have failed to get a domain of .com or .net or other popular extensions can certainly try these new domain extensions.
