To make room for incoming websites, Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) have now been introduced to the public. Gone are the days when you could only choose between a .com or a .biz; you can now choose a .pizza domain for your pizza parlor, a .boutique domain for your local shop, or even a .photos domain to showcase your photography. A full list of available gTLDs is at the bottom of this post.
However gTLDs are still the new kids on the block, so they have some hurdles to overcome. Right now, consumers still tend to trust websites with traditional domains rather than new, unusual ones. This may evolve over time as people become more accustomed to websites with .dance and .ninja in the names. But for now, it’s probably worth checking to see if a good .com address is available first before diversifying into gTLDs.
When you’re ready to register one of these new domains, log in to your Jimdo site and head over to Upgrade > Add-ons. Here, you’ll be able to search the availability of the domain of your choice and then add it to your account. If you’re just signing up for a website now, simply enter the domain you want into the domain field when you're prompted.
So if you think a gTLD will be right for you, head on over to your website and you can add one directly. Because gTLDs are still so new, it’s not clear which ones will catch on, and it may take a while for people to become familiar with them. But, chosen wisely, they can be a fun, unique addition to your website.
