TLD Tuesdays (Vol. 3): .LGBT

“The future is fluid.”

For centuries, gender identity, expression, sexuality, and relationships have been governed by social norms and in some cases, unreasonable phobias. Today, our world has come a long way from giving death penalties to homosexuals to legally recognizing same sex relationships.

This has only been possible because of the LGBT folks, and resolute activists, who not only challenged rudimentary beliefs but also strived hard to eradicate them. What’s more, the LGBT community also got its very own domain extension!

You guessed it right, or TLD in focus for this Tuesday is .LGBT.


A little history on .LGBT

.LGBT is a sponsored TLD i.e. a TLD meant to represent a specific community, sponsored by one of the largest Domain Name Registries – Afilias. This TLD was introduced in July 2014 with the aim of providing a designated digital space to the LGBT community. Since its inception, the TLD has seen over 2,800+ registrations.


Who is .LGBT meant for?

With a reputation of being the “internet’s most inclusive address”, .LGBT is meant for people who wish to destroy all the definitions that classify genders in 2 concrete categories. This TLD provides a very relevant domain name option to the following categories:

  • People who identify themselves as Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgenders and wish to express themselves online
  • Individuals, organisations, local community centers, health clinics, and business who wish to reach the LGBT audiences beyond the boundaries of prejudices and geographies
  • Bloggers who wish to create and share content which is tailored for the LGBT audiences


Why should you sell .LGBT?

.LGBT is an extremely emphatic domain extension which says what it means right from the first glance. With a rapid growth increasing the strength of the community, this sponsored TLD holds tremendous potential.

We hope you have enjoyed reading about the significance and the many uses of .LGBT, and moreover, we hope that you will start offering this TLD to your customers! In case you want us to talk about specific TLDs, do let us know in the comments section below.


Until next Tuesday,
