Choose a Creative Domain Name Extension for Your Church
Everyone knows most websites today end with .com (or .org, plus a few others), which are called a Domain Name Extension. But now there are over 1,500 different domain extensions!
With so many different possibilities, we think a few really stand out for church websites: .church, .life, .faith, and .family to name a few. Whether you're a church plant about to begin your website or have an existing church website, you might want to consider instead using these new domain extensions because:
- Some extensions may be easier to remember and look great in print. Shorter domain names are easier to say, print, and remember, so the extension can help.
- You can get closer to the website address you originally wanted. When first choosing your church's domain name, you may have found what you wanted was already taken with a .com at the end. But with all of these new extensions, you may be able to get what you originally wanted, or even make your website address shorter or easier to remember.
Use your imagination, and if you are not sure where to look, we personally use www.name.com for our own domain name registrations and can highly recommend them (we are not an affiliate). Keep in mind that some of the extensions (such as .church) might cost more than your current .com registration.
