A Little History about .APP

This exciting domain name extension launched as a Generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD, or domain name extension) under Google. Google originally purchased the .APP domain extension from ICANN in 2015, and launched to the general public in May of 2018. App is a short form word for application, and applies to both web and mobile apps. Google created the .APP domain to be an encrypted-by-default TLD. It’s important to note that websites hosted on .APP will not load unless they are served over HTTPS and you will need a valid SSL certificate installed on your website. Creating a more secure web is part of Google’s overall brand push and .APP is just another way they ensure that HTTPS becomes the norm.

    This domain extension supports tiered price domain names. Tiered pricing means that the domain registry has marked some some domain names within this extension as costing more or less than others. Tiered pricing domain names will appear with a blue star, and they have different registration prices than normal. Hover offers tiered pricing to give you the most options when it comes to buying domain names. Tier prices are determined by the registry, and not Hover.
