.tools is a new generic top-level domain (gTLD) name, which was introduced as one of the New gTLDs to provide a dedicated namespace for tools and instruments used by professionals working in nearly every conceivable field of human endeavor.
Every day, digital tools are created and launched on the Internet for professionals across various job functions and industries to use as part of their daily practice or business activities.
Whether physical or digital, these tools can help individuals perform tasks more efficiently while presenting opportunities to solve problems that didn't exist until now.
Tools connect users with information; they increase productivity; they're essential to certain professions; they create connections between people who share similar interests; and many other uses!
The .TOOLS gTLD can be used in many ways, including:
As the legal part of the name for your company or product
As an extension to promote your tools related business website (for example HVAC.TOOLS)
As a marketing tool to help with brand recognition and protection (for example TOOLBAR.TOOLS)
Where are .tools used?
The .tools gTLD is a perfect match for tools and instrument manufacturers, tradesmen, designers, engineers, consultants, repair services, hobbyists or other professionals who provide products or services to other businesses.
Consumers are also welcome to use the .tools domain name if they have an interest in serving as product testers or wish to share their reviews of specific types of tools with peers.
Tools are everywhere. If you can name it, there is probably a tool for that. The .TOOLS domain is the place where tools and instruments used by professionals across various job functions and industries can be found.
.tools can be registered by anyone for any use, providing it's not already in use and doesn't infringe on somebody else's intellectual property. There are no restrictions on how you build your site or what you do with the domain name after registration.
