There’s a new domain extension to welcome aboard.
At Hover, we want to bring you the widest variety of domain names. That’s why we’re always adding new top-level domains (TLDs) to the growing list of domain extensions we already support. From the most popular gTLDs, country specific ccTLDs and all the other ones in between, you’re sure to find the domain that best suits your needs.
.Aero domains are now available to register right here at Hover. This is a pretty specific TLD with lots of interesting details. Not just anyone can register a .aero domain, but it’s got a lot to offer for those who can.
Here’s what you need to know about .aero:
What is .aero?
.Aero domains are exclusive to the aviation industry. They were developed to help air-travel businesses streamline communications within a more structured online community. The .aero TLD is the first ever industry-specific domain extension.
The aviation industry has become increasingly computerized, including itineraries, passenger tracking and baggage processing. .Aero domains are a way for all of these systems to integrate and work together.
Who can register a .aero domain?
Only those who are in the business of aviation can register .aero domain names. In order to be eligible, you must apply to have your credentials verified as an airline, airport, or another entity in the air-travel industry.
Why choose .aero?
A .aero domain name let’s everyone know that you’re in the business of aviation. The registration process and eligibility verification shows that you’re a true, bona fide member of the aviation community.
You can still find plenty of domain name options for .aero that may not otherwise be available for other TLDs. This includes very short, three-letter domains that are easy, memorable and recognizable.
When it comes to search rankings, .aero domains are treated the same way as other gTLDs. That means .aero domains are just as searchable as the more common extensions, like .com, .org and .net.
Using a .aero domain name allows for easier communication between members of the aviation community, and with its partners and customers. Plus, the structured DNS technology of .Aero domains allows for useful business applications, such as e-ticketing and baggage management.
