Bring your idea to life with a .net domain.
If you want your business, product or idea to stand out on the web, start with the right domain extension. Dot net gives you greater freedom to explore names you want and adds the credibility that comes from being one of the world’s first top-level domains (TLD). When you register .net, it gives you the freedom to:
- Be confident. As one of the first domains, .net has credibility that only comes with experience. Buy .net and join a smart, ambitious group who's ready to change the game.
- Be different. Your business is unique. Your domain should be, too. With a .net, you can build a brand that reflects your individuality.
- Be recognizable. While .net is one of the most popular domains on the web, there are still millions of names available — so you can get the domain you really want.
In the world of domains, .net isn’t the most flashy or specialized. It’s all about business. Where some TLDs create an identity that demands attention, dot net is the quiet but confident one in the room. It shows you’re a professional who knows the next move.
Get one of the first domains.
It was back in 1985 when .net domains came into existence. The internet at the time had been using complex strings of numbers to designate website addresses and .net, along with the six other original domain extensions (.com, .org, .int, .edu, .gov and .mil), aimed to create an easier experience. Originally, dot net was supposed to be for folks involved with network technologies — like ISPs and data centers — but it’s wide open to anyone who wants to register it.
Today, it’s the fifth most-popular domain extension out there — but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get a .net domain name you love. That’s because it strikes the right balance between popularity and availability. Everyone immediately recognizes the .net domain extension, but there are still enough left that you have a good chance of making your perfect domain a .net
