Why own a .MOE Domain Name

The domain for celebrating Otaku culture. "Moe" (pronounced as “moh-ay”) is a slang word rooted deep in the Japanese Otaku culture, meaning a particular type of “adorable” or “cute” towards fictional characters, people, animals, anything. Going beyond Otaku, it can also be used to express a deep feeling or passion for something you love — similar to how others would use the word "geek." Find your .MOE today!

A Little History about .MOE

"Moe" is derived from a Japanese word, moeru, that is somewhat synonymous with both geek and passion. It derives from a sub-culture of Japan, called Otaku, which is a term used for people who are obsessed with something, especially in terms of anime and manga. Moeru means "to bud" or "to sprout" and is best described as a feeling of excitement towards an object or character. Moe has often been used to describe “adorable” or “cute” characteristics of fictional or fantasy characters. From this, the .MOE domain name was created and released to the public on July 22nd 2014. This Generic (though adorable!) Top-Level Domain (gTLD) can be registered by anyone without restriction. Neustar is the backend registry and Interlink is the main registry for the .MOE domain name.

Tiered pricing means that the domain registry has marked some some domain names within this extension as costing more or less than others.

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.
