Blockchain and cryptocurrency companies have an incredible opportunity to secure top-level domain names created specifically for the financial services industry. 

Starting November 19, 2019, the .bond top-level domain extension will be entering general availability. Businesses as varied as exchanges, ICOs, banks, wealth management practices, and investment education companies will be competing to secure the best .bond domain names before they are all taken.  

Why the .BOND Top-Level Domain Matters

Having the right domain name will make it easier for customers to find and remember your website. Domains are a finite resource. This means that if you fail to act quickly, you may lose the ability to secure a matching .bond domain name for your business. 

The finite nature of domain names also makes them a strong investment because their scarcity tends to push the resale value up of a specialized domain name over time. 

Having a bond top-level domain name is one way to stand out from the competition. It also helps establish authority in your industry with both search engines and potential clients.

Anticipated Rush

Since the initial announcement of the .bond domain names, there has been considerable excitement building among financial service companies and domain name speculators.

There is expected to be a massive rush for the best .bond domain names. Companies that do not take action in the first few days of the general availability may be locked out of bond domain names for years.

Right now you can register domains like bitcoin.bond, BTC.bond, blockchain.bond, and crypto.bond since there are no premium names and less than 1,200 names on the registry reserved list.

Early Access Program 

In order to help companies secure their .bond domain name, the registry has an early access program (EAP) that will allow you to have priority access to the best domain names. The early access pricing is as follows:

  • Nov 19: $9,029.99
  • Nov 20: $7,919.99
  • Nov 21: $6,819.99
  • Nov 22: $5,499.99
  • Nov 23: $4,399.99
  • Nov 24: $3,299.99
  • Nov 25: $2,089.99

Because of the anticipated level of demand for the bond domain names, waiting until after the EAP is over may lead to you not being able to secure the domain name you wanted. 

You already understand how powerful the first-mover advantage is in the world of cryptocurrency. Don’t miss out on your chance to gain a competitive edge in your niche.
