Who is the .wales domain for?
This could take some time. Wales covers somewhere in the region of 20,700 square metres of land. It’s home to roughly three million people, and recent estimates suggest there are around 238,200 businesses operating within its borders. The .wales domain is suitable for anyone who has any connection with the above. Although there’s no rule that says you have to be based in Wales to buy a .wales, anyone with an appreciation of the place can buy the domain.
Not convinced? .wales is especially relevant to...
Tourism businesses: Wales is making an increasingly compelling name for itself on the global tourism front. The country is developing a reputation as the land of adventure. It’s home to 100-mile-per-hour zip lines, underground trampoline parks, and caving and coasteering opportunities. Increase your chances of showing up in the search results for Wales hotels, attractions, or adrenaline opportunities, by signing up for a .wales web address.
Small businesses: At the last count, the Welsh government estimated that 99 per cent of its businesses were SMEs. It just goes to show that the people of Wales like to go local. The consensus of opinion tends to be ‘Why choose a faceless multi-national company when you can give your custom to a business that gives back to the place you live?’ Show you’re as proud to be Welsh as your customers are to buy Welsh with a .wales web address.
Bloggers: There are a few places around the world that could be classed as blogging hot spots. There’s LA, which gave us Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, New York, where the Huffington Post was founded, and London, where famous bloggers like Deliciously Ella live. But what about Wales? If your blog is dedicated to your country then it already stands out from all the copycat blogs that try to emanate the likes of Gwyn and El. Make sure that comes across in you web address name by getting yourself a .wales domain.
