Why should I register a .download domain name?

You can help them find it quickly and easily by offering your visitors the relevant address at the end of your web address in the form of ".download" so they can get what they want in no time.

There are several reasons why you might want to register a .download domain name:

1. To create a website that offers downloads of files, software, or other content.

2. To protect your brand or trademark by preventing others from using the same domain name with a different extension. For example, if you own the trademark "Apple" you may want to register "apple.download" to prevent others from using it.

3. To use as a redirect URL for your website's download page.


What are the registration restrictions for a .download domain name?

A .download domain name can contain between 3 and 63 characters. You are not required to register an exact match of your company or brand name unless you are trying to protect your brand name by registering a second-level domain (SLD) on the same TLD.

The following are restricted from registration: pornographic material, illicit drugs, hate speech or discriminatory content, gambling-related content, political sites with restricted views or controversial viewpoints, sites that promote violence in any way.

What is the difference between a .download top-level domain name (TLD) and a gTLD?

A .download top-level domain name (TLD) is one of the many country code top-level domains (ccTLDs) that can be used to identify a unique country or region and is generally restricted for use by entities connected with that specific country/region.

A gTLD (generic top-level domain) is a TLD that doesn't represent any specific entity. Some common examples of gTLDs include. com, .org, and .net.
