The .autos domain name is the abbreviation for automobiles. It was created in an effort to create a domain name that quickly and accurately describes a specific product, service, or company.
The .autos is a new domain name for all automobile dealers, automotive manufacturers, and any other automobile-related industry.
This new gTLD (generic top-level domain) will be included in the list of extensions that already exist like .com, .net, .org or .biz.
By virtue of its positioning, the domain name .autos will be dedicated to all professionals in the automobile industry (dealerships, manufacturers, importers), but also to users who are looking for second-hand cars like individuals wishing to buy a used vehicle or professional traders.
Also, it will be possible to propose this domain name to schools teaching car mechanics, driving schools, and even journalists specializing in automobile topics.
