.barclaycard is a new generic top-level domain (gTLD) name, the extension that appears to the right of the last dot in a web address, such as .com or .co.uk. It has been registered by Barclaycard, the credit card division of Barclays bank.
The .barclaycard domain will be used to secure Barclaycard's online presence and enable customers, merchants, and developers to access Barclaycard products and services in a trusted environment on a dedicated website.
.barclaycard has been reserved for consumer and commercial use, and can be used by individuals and organizations to build a website that reflects their affiliation with the credit card issuer.
For example, an airline could set up a site under .barclaycard to provide travelers with updates on flight times, or a hotel could create a site to manage bookings.
The .barclaycard domain provides Barclays with the opportunity to showcase Barclaycard products and services in a trusted online environment, while at the same time providing customers, merchants, and developers access to these products and services in a dedicated website.
