Introduced in 2001 as a generic top-level domain, the .INFO extension has quickly spread around the world, thanks to the intuitive nature of the extension.
.INFO, an abbreviation of information, is a generic term used by the main languages of the world as well as by the main international information organizations. For example, in 2001, following on from the attacks on the Twin Towers, New York's metropolitan transport authorities set up a website using this extension to keep people informed of changes to routes and times, specifically because of the fact that it was immediately recognizable.
The fact that it is so easy to understand has made .INFO one of the most widespread domains in the world.
The advantages of a .INFO domain
In the information era, a .INFO domain sends out a clear message about the content of your website, and immediately marks it out as a source of authoritative information about a specific subject – whether it is an idea, a concept or a business.
If the purpose of your site is to inform, divulge, or become a point of reference for anyone looking for information and knowledge, the .info domain is perfect for you: let the extension speak for you, and tell the public that your site offers direct, preferential access to the information users are looking for.
The .INFO extension has no restrictions and can be applied to any field, including business: many companies have a .INFO version featuring useful information for users. With more than 5 million sites registered around the world, the .INFO extension is the first choice for anyone keen to provide answers.
