The Alibaba Group, in partnership with the global domain registry operator Afilias Limited and leading international registrar eNom, has announced that it will launch a new generic top-level domain (gTLD) called ".alibaba" to provide an online space for Chinese businesses and consumers around the world.
This means that you can now register your own personalized web address ending in ".alibaba".
The ".alibaba" TLD is the only domain name with a Chinese character to be listed in the world's largest and most popular gTLDs.
The TLD will create a new web address ending for Alibaba and give millions of customers, merchants, and users another secure and easier way to access Alibaba Group online properties.
Yes, you can register multiple domain names for the same website.
If your company name is "ABC", then you can have www.abc.com and www.abc.tw as the domain names of your website.
There are no restrictions on registering multiple domain names for the same website.
With a ".alibaba" gTLD, customers will be able to easily find your online business website just by searching with your company or brand name on Google or Aliyun, Alibaba's search engine.
You can register a .alibaba TLD for your Alibaba Group website to more easily direct your customers and users to your online presence.
Yes, you can register a ".alibaba" gTLD for your Alibaba Group website.
To avoid any mistakes or misspellings, it is recommended that you first check with the Alibaba Group to verify that your desired domain name is available.
The process of registering a .alibaba TLD for your Alibaba Group website is similar to that for any other website.
You can purchase and register it online through your preferred international registrar.
If you wish to have a domain name with a term that is similar to your company or product brand, you can consider registering the term as a second-level domain name (SLD) under another TLD.
For example, wwwmyfavdomainname.com will be an alternative if .alibaba is already registered.
You can look for other similar options. For example, wwwabc-inc.com or www1234abc.com etc).
You can use other options such as choosing a different second-level domain name. E.g. if you want to register at www.abc-inc.com, you can choose abc1-inc.com as the second-level domain name of your website.
The registration policies for the new ".alibaba" domain name will require that you submit proof that you have the authority to use, register, and protect it on behalf of your customers or yourself.
This means that if you want to register Jimmy Johnson as your website address, you will need to prove that you have the authority from him before you can successfully register it.
The new TLD policy allows Chinese personal or business entities to register their own personalized web address ending in ".alibaba" to provide an online space for Chinese businesses and consumers around the world.
