How do I get a domain name?
- Think about what you’d like on the other side of the .ART. It could be your personal name, name of your business or your specialty. Examples: namelastname.art, yourgallery.art, yourproject.art
- Type the domain you want into the search box at the top of this page. We’ll tell you if that particular domain is available and show others you may like better.
- Pick one, add it to your cart and check out. You are now the proud owner of your very own .ART domain. As long as it’s registered to you, no one else may use it.
Got any tips on finding a good domain name?
Make it easy to remember. This is why many businesses get domains with their business names in them. Some people even choose their business name after they have a domain they like.
Shorter is usually better because they’re easier for customers to remember. It’s also easier to get matching usernames for Facebook, Twitter and any other social media accounts you have.
Get more than one. As traffic to your website increases, you may attract the attention of copycats who’ll snatch up similar domain names in the hopes of drawing traffic away from you. Register similar or misspelled domains early so this won’t be an issue later.
