The .WORKS domain name is the new generic top-level domain (gTLD) that establishes a set of rules for any business or individual to create, share and manage their digital identity.
It represents your professional profile on the Internet, highlighting your abilities and expertise in an effective way.
What do I qualify for?
The .WORKS domain name is available to everyone, regardless of whether you are a business or an individual. You can create as many .WORKS domains as you want.
Any individual or organization worldwide can register a .WORKS gTLD. If you are part of the creative community (such as graphic designers, photographers), if you’re running your own business (online stores, start-ups), if you’re looking for employees (job board providers), or simply if you want to identify yourself online with an easy to remember domain name (.works), then .WORKS is an ideal choice for your online branding.
Why should I register my domain name?
Registering your .WORKS domain names will increase your online visibility and specify for people who visit your website what exactly does it deal with.
Registration also provides you the opportunity to edit and manage all of your identities (emails and web addresses) and even use them together — for example: "email@example.com".

The .WORKS domain name is designed to be used by individuals, bloggers, and businesses. You can use it for different purposes like setting up your business online (for example with a professional website) or presenting yourself as an individual (with a blog).
You can also enter your favorite hobby website (for example creating a site about video games).
What the future of .WORKS domains?
This domain extension opens new opportunities for its customers to manage their online identity and share it with others. We believe that this will lead to more creative websites, blogs, hosting providers, e-commerce stores, or individual portfolio sites.
.WORKS is an open namespace, which gives you the opportunity to create any kind of personalized page on the Internet. For example:
buycar.works – a marketplace for buying cars online
hoteldeals.works – a hotel booking search engine
milanovacationrentals.works – a vacation rentals platform
pricegrabberrobot.works – an e‑commerce blog
What is the difference between .WORKS and .COM?
At first glance, both domains look very similar. However, there are significant differences between them, which make each of them advisable or not for certain cases:
Both of them are open for registration (not limited to specific users) Neither requires exclusivity (but some registrars don’t offer single generic TLDs).
A domain name with the .COM extension might be already registered (limited number of extensions available), while a new one can still be created (unlimited number).
A premium .COM domain usually has a high price attached to it; but there is no such fee for .WORKS.
A .COM domain can be used by only one company, while a .WORKS domain name is ideal for creating personal websites for individuals or businesses.
What happens after I a .WORKS domain name?
After you register a .WORKS domain, the next step is to create a website or a blog that describes who you are and what you do. This will be your online presence where you can share your work with the world.
