Last year ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) announced that they will be releasing many more Top Level Domains (TLDs) for web addresses. Gone are the days where you only had three choices: .com, .net, and .org. Now there’s everything from .buzz to .youtube–a full list of all TLDs can be found here on Wikipedia.
Whether you’re expecting, have a family of your own, or want to have a gathering place for all of your relatives, you may want to consider grabbing your .Family domain name as soon as possible from Name.com. Chances are, YourLastNameFamily.com is taken, but there’s a good chance you can get YourLastName.Family if you register it early.
If your family name has not yet been registered it could cost as little as $19.99 per year or as much as $1,250 depending on the popularity of your last name. The registration process is easy. Just go to Name.com, search for your .Family domain, and if it’s available, add it to your cart and check out. Once its registered, you can use a platform like Squarespace or WordPress to create an online baby announcement, share photos of that family vacation, or blog about your pregnancy. An additional benefit is that you can create family member email addresses like YourName@LastName.Family.
