FAQs - Frequently asked questions
The new .blog domain is an excellent option for any blog project and really helps it to stand out from the mass of other blogs out there. With the new blog domain extension, your platform and services will be easily distinguished from your competitors. By creating specialised domain names for your respective services, you will have a clearer message showing in the search engine results, informing your audience about the content of your site. With so many vague and misleading domain names to filter through, your readers may get lost on the way to your valuable content.
However, when you buy a new, specialised blog domain from IONOS, you choose a name that suits you best and that your readers will recognise and remember.

Specialised .blog domains ensure that you become an instant authority in your field. Finally, compared to the classic TLDs already registered millions of times, the younger .blog domains offer significantly more combinations of attractive domain names for your project. This way, you are sure to get a blog domain that suits your project perfectly, without having to compromise.

Yes, the .blog domain was officially released on the 21st November 2016. Now the new TLD is available to all interested parties. However, .blog domains, like all TLDs and nTLDs, are only available on a first-come, first-served basis. This means that whoever registers the blog domain first acquires it, so registering early is the only way to ensure that your desired .blog domain combination isn't picked up by someone else. Want to know if your desired .blog domain address is still available? Simply enter it into the IONOS Domain Checker tool and hit enter. You will automatically see whether it's still available, and if it has already been assigned, you will be offered similar alternatives that may also suit your project. Find the right nTLD and strengthen your website with a professional .blog domain address today!
