They’re a new domain extension for something that may be older than you think. Believe it or not, the concept of an automobile can be traced back to the 13th century, when a Franciscan monk predicted the existence of transportation that didn’t rely on animal power, yet moved with “unbelievable rapidity.” (Sound familiar?) Fast-forward about 800 years and we’ve got nearly 1.5 billion automobiles on the planet.
You’ll see the word autos in many of the world’s languages — and it means the same thing in all of them. They’re an essential part of our lives. Something where (for better or worse) we spend hours each week, getting to school or work or just cruising around. Clearly, you don’t just buy the .autos domain — you tap into a community that stretches around the world.
