Travel The World With gTLDs

Posted by Madeleine Bruce

Summer is in full swing! Never has there been a better time to set up your travel site, and gTLDs are on hand to help you out.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers dropped their first batch of generic top level domains (gTDLs) in March 2013, changing the face of the internet forever. Dedicated to their “mission to ensure a stable and unified global internet”, ICANN have been releasing a steady flow of domain name extensions over the past two years, broadening online horizons for businesses, bloggers and individuals looking to get started on their web presence.

With summer in full swing, we’re taking a look at how vay-cay season is doing online. Following the release of the gTLD programme, a variety of alternatives to the staple .coms, .orgs and .nets have emerged in perfect complement to summer activities. Here at Midphase we love a summer celebration, and currently our summer sizzlers are smouldering away on our website to give you the chance to grab one of these gTLDs for a steal!

There’s a range of gTLDs which are the perfect fit for your summer site:


Do you deal in vacations? You won’t want to miss out on a .vacations domain name if so. Create an online environment dedicated to making people’s dreams come true and they’ll thank you for it. .vacations is a great domain name option for any business which contains the word ‘vacations’ as it can offer you the chance to secure a shorter web address which is easier for your site visitors to remember. Remember: is a lot more snappy than!


Not a land lover? Or perhaps you deal with those with experienced sea-legs? Market and advertise your cruises with a .cruises domain! This one is perfect all year round as a cruise can take anyone to the summer of their choice around the world. You could see an influx of Brits to the Bahamas for a cruise during their own summertime; they don’t usually see much sun in any season!


There’s a selection of gTLDs which are suited to businesses or individuals who offer space for hire or accommodation for those wanting to get away in the summer (or indeed the winter!) months. Why not showcase what you have to offer with a .rentals domain name? You could even go more specific and advertise your condos for rent with a .condos domain (there’s a .villas on offer too; the opportunities are rife)! Fill your site with images of the space you have on offer and watch the reservations roll in.


There’s a whole wide world out there for us to explore, and there’s no better place to find the destination for you than through a .world domain name. Alternatively, a .world domain name provides a great place for globetrotters to document their experiences and share photographs with loved ones back at home, who are more than likely suffering from a severe case of wanderlust.


Also on offer is the .global domain name, ideal for businesses who operate worldwide. In today’s digital business climate, it’s uncommon to encounter any business which operates locally; the big players all operate on a global scale. Do you provide holiday homes all over the world? Or maybe your company has several offices to provide on-demand support at all hours of the day and in all locations? If so, .global is for you. Put the global stamp on your website and prove your sheer size and worth to your customers.

Take a look at our domain names page to get started with your new gTLD. There are hundreds of alternative options should these ones not be of interest!
