WordPress.com has bagged the rights for the new .blog domain.Get yours before Nov 21.

.blog domain

There’s a good news to bloggers today, & the news is that Automattic Inc, the company behind WordPress announced that the timeline for launching the newest domain extension .blog has been finalised. The .blog domains will be available starting from Nov 21 to the public.

 

The .blog domain is a tribute to the world of blogs & bloggers who strive hard to generate quality content for the internet to feed upon. The .com domain is the most popular at present, but Automattic estimates & hopes that .blog will overtake it soon.

Google has also confirmed that .blog domain will be ranked better in search results if the content matches the style & format of a typical blog(though it’s not clear what parameters they consider to check if it is actually a blog).

 

The good news is that not only WordPress blogs but any kinds of blogging platforms are eligible to use .blog domain. But the domain could be bought only from WordPress & its selected affiliate hosting providers. The registration prices aren’t finalised though. Prices for the .blog domain shall be confirmed on August 18.

 

The .blog domain opens up possibilities of fresh domain names & catchy URLs.It’ll be a lot more different from .com,net,org,edu domains.
