Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is .GLOBAL?

.GLOBAL is a new TLD (Top Level Domain) created with the sole purpose of providing organizations of all sizes with a global presence. The meaning of the word ‘global’ is intuitive and universally understood to mean borderless and spanning the entire world.

 

Why was .GLOBAL created?

.GLOBAL was created to empower businesses and organizations on a global stage by giving them a domain name which can identify them as a global organization. A .GLOBAL name positions businesses of all kinds who wish to offer their products, services and messaging to a universal audience. Due to the saturation of the current com/net/org namespace, not every global organization or business was able to secure their first choice for their domain name. The introduction of .GLOBAL means that for the first time businesses can have their first choice in a .GLOBAL name which will either complement their .com traffic, or replace it.

 

Who is .GLOBAL for?

.GLOBAL is for any size organization that either operates or aspires towards a global Internet presence.

How can .GLOBAL be used?

.GLOBAL is to be used as either a stand alone web address for your business or as the top level hierarchy of your domain portfolio.
