.SKI Launches Today: Uniting the Snow Sports Industry and Ski Enthusiasts Worldwide Under One Domain Extension
Simple, relevant .ski domain names are now available providing choice, innovation and opportunity to the snow sports community.
NEW YORK (September 8, 2015) — Dot Ski (.ski) officially launched today after three years of development and planning. With support and input from global organizations, including the International Ski Federation (FIS), .ski is the world’s first Internet domain space dedicated to those with a passion for ski and snow sports.
The new .ski top level domain (TLD) was created to provide the snow sports community with a new alternative to the convoluted domain space with the opportunity to register short, relevant and affordable .ski domain names.
Part of the Internet movement of going beyond conventional domain name extensions in order to unify the innovation and passion of a specific industry, .ski domain extensions are now available starting at just $29.99 at over 60 online resellers including Name.com, GoDaddy, and 101domain.com. Those first to sign up will have the most options to choose from, as names and abbreviations are expected to go quickly.
During the company’s limited registration period, over 1,000 ski resorts, brands, associations and athletes secured their .ski domain names including Vail, Courchevel, St. Moritz, Rossignol, Atomic, the USSA, and U.S. freeskiers Willie Borm and Maggie Voisin, while thousands of others are expected to register or switch over during the 15/16 season. While the traditional domain space has forced companies to come up with lengthy alternatives, .ski offers the chance to snatch up shorter, more specific domain names, helping brands and business to stand out from the noise of the competition on the Internet.
