Why use the .technology domain extension?

  • Relevance: .technology clearly communicates the nature of the content or business associated with technology.

  • Memorability: The domain is concise and easy to remember, making it an effective choice for branding.

  • Industry recognition: It helps in establishing credibility within the tech industry.

When to use .technology vs .com

Choosing the right domain extension is crucial for creating a strong web address. The .technology extension signals to users that the website is focused on technology-related topics, products or services, making it a relevant and memorable choice for entities operating in the tech industry. 

The .com domain extension is suitable for a broader range of businesses and individuals, offering versatility and widespread recognition. Because .com domains are so common, you might have more luck finding the domain name of your choice if it has the .technology extension.
