.fashion is a new, TLD (top-level domain) name for web addresses where fashion is the focus. This could include sites about fashion designers, models, clothing, trends, or any other related topic.
The .fashion domain name was created to help people easily find websites that are focused on fashion.
This can be especially helpful for people who are looking for information about a certain designer or trend. It can also be useful for businesses that sell clothes or accessories online.
Why create a new top-level domain name?
There are already a number of top-level domain names that are specific to certain topics, such as .com, .net, and .org.
The creators of the new .fashion domain name believe that it will be especially helpful for people who are looking for information about fashion.
Currently, there isn't a dedicated space online for those who produce and consume fashion content to communicate with each other.
A new top-level domain will allow those interested in this space to discuss their shared passion more easily through unbranded destinations (e.g., fashion.fashion, instead of example.com or blogspot.com).
It will also help online shoppers more easily connect with fashion-related businesses where they can buy everything from clothes to accessories.
What is the process for registering a .fashion domain name?
Domain name registration for the .fashion top-level domain is open to anyone. To register your desired domain name, use the search bar on this page and follow the on-screen instructions.
If you would like to keep your .fashion registration private, use the same search bar on this page.
Does the .fashion top-level domain have any special requirements or restrictions?
The rules for registering .fashion domain names are typically stricter than other TLDs due to their focus on fashion. The following guidelines apply:
• Your site must be about fashion or related topics—if you want to start an online store that exclusively sells clothes, you will meet these guidelines. If your site does not focus on fashion but is related in some way (e.g., you create custom-made clothing), you may still be able to register a domain name but should reach out to the .fashion team for more information.
• You must own or have permission to use any trademarks that are included in your desired domain name—trademarks must be approved by the registry before a domain can be registered. If you do not own the trademark, you will need written consent from the trademark owner.
• The domain name must be at least 3 characters long and no more than 63 characters long—this includes the extension (.fashion).
• Domain names cannot include profanity or discriminatory language—for example, racial slurs or hate speech.
As fashion becomes an increasingly important part of our lives, it's important to have a dedicated space online where we can exchange ideas and information.
