.SPACE now free with a web hosting plan
Just a few months after .SPACE was launched on our platform, this promising domain extension has become the first nTLD to enter the list of free domain names offered with a web hosting plan.
As of today, you’ve got another marketing tool for drawing new customers to your services.
Because of its universal nature, .SPACE represents a powerful new addition to the arsenal of free TLDs, which comprises the pioneers .COM and .NET, as well as the top-selling ccTLDs .US, .UK, .RU, .EU, .ES, .NL, .BE and .DE.
The .SPACE nTLD – some history and facts
.SPACE was launched more than two years ago by Radix Registry to address the needs of creative minds and freelancers for a namespace where they could present their own unique personality via a meaningful and memorable online address.
Since its official release in January 2014, the .SPACE TLD has been responsible for over 150,000 domain registrations and its growth rate has been quite steady.
Currently, .SPACE holds the 21st position in the official nTLD chart, right next to other new TLD chart climbers like .WEBSITE and .PARTY.
Why register a .SPACE domain?
According to a recent study, there are 22 million freelance entities in the USA and over 8 million freelancers in Europe, with millions of other self-employed experts around the world in search of an individual online identity.
All this makes .SPACE very appealing to freelance prospects and DIY enthusiasts who are looking for the perfect nameSPACE to expose their ground-breaking projects and innovative ideas.
With such a promising market potential lying ahead, .SPACE represents a goldmine for your web hosting store.
Actually, the potential applications of .SPACE are countless. It could be used by small businesses and groups wishing to push their ideas/causes into public space, as well as by space lovers and scientists who want to give an ‘extraterrestrial’ feel to their sites.
.SPACE – registration details
Due to its generic nature, the .SPACE TLD is wide open for registration to the public (for a period of 1-10 years).
The registration process is quick and simple, with no specific requirements to follow.
.SPACE domain names that have been registered with another registrar can be moved over to us at the same price. An EPP key will be required for the transfer to complete.
How to enable .SPACE and ‘set it free’ with a hosting plan?
The .SPACE nTLD is enabled by default for those of you who have not made any changes to the TLD order on your stores.
In case you’ve made tweaks to your domain portfolio, you can enable .SPACE from the My Domains section in your Reseller Control Panel.
The .SPACE TLD can now be offered for free with all web hosting packages that support this option.
If you have not taken advantage of the free-domain-name-with-a-hosting-plan option yet, you can do so from the Shared Hosting Offers section of the Control Panel.
Making .SPACE available for free on your hosting store is a great opportunity for you to expand your business playground and draw more valuable customers to your brand.
