The bar industry have been given their own internet domain name as .BAR is launched worldwide.
For years the world has been relying on .com plus the regional addresses such as .co.uk when creating web addresses, however recently the trend has been to for industries to get their own domain names, otherwise known as Top-Level Domains. The most well known currently being .org and .tv.
This trend is spreading with new domains being released on a weekly basis. Most recently launched is .bar, aimed at bars, nightclubs and anyone looking to get involved in the drinking culture.
Whilst these new domains aren’t readily used in the UK currently, industry experts are predicting dedicated domain names are the future of the internet. Aaron Grego, CEO of Punto 2012 had this to say:
‘.BAR will connect the bar and club industry with customers online. This is a perfect opportunity for businesses to grab a simple and easy-to-use domain name that describes their bar or club with a descriptive name. Our industry needs to stand out online and be found — with .BAR they can.’
So now is the time to get involved. The time to get your bar registered before a similar named place in a far flung land you have never heard of beats you to it and gets those all important Google search results.
There are many places you can go online to purchase your domains but a good starting point is https://www.domains.bar and we will leave you to do your research from there.
