Get a .GAY Domain Name from Hover

Now available to all!

You’re ready to wave the Internet’s first virtual Pride flag. Whether you’re a passionate individual, a committed corporate ally or a small business catering to or celebrating its LGBTQ+ clientele and employees, a .GAY domain name helps you broadcast your inclusive and prideful values to the world.

The .GAY domain makes finding community, services, recreation, LGBTQ+ and allied businesses easier and more meaningful. Of course, at just three characters, the internationally-used identity really pops when it appears in your website, email address and social links. A .GAY domain makes your branding more personal, impactful and fun!

The visibility and representation fostered on .GAY is an important step in the ongoing cause for equality for LGBTQ+ people. What’s more, the .GAY domain goes beyond representation to make the world a better place for LGBTQ+ people and allies in two important ways: it funds LGBTQ+ causes and it has anti-hate policies to keep its corner of the Internet safer than the status quo.

The .GAY registry donates 20% of the revenue (not just profit) from every new domain name to LGBTQ+ organizations; inaugural beneficiaries are GLAAD and CenterLink. Its .GAY Rights Protections policy ensures that the registry can accept, research and take action against any content that uses .GAY to malign LGBTQ+ people or groups. See the Gay Rights Protections Policy for more information.
