The Perfect Last-Minute Gift for the Dentist on Your Holiday List: a Web Address Ending in .DENTIST

KIRKLAND, Wash., Dec. 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rightside (Nasdaq:NAME), a leading provider of domain name services that advance the way businesses and consumers define and present themselves online, announced that .DENTIST and .REHAB, new Top Level Domains (TLDs) catering to a highly trained community of medical professionals, will become widely available tomorrow. For those still looking for gift ideas as of December 24, an industry-specific domain name could be the most useful, personal — and unexpected — gift to help the practitioner in your life celebrate the holidays.

There are nearly 100,000 dentists in the U.S., more than half of whom use social media to connect with patients. With .DENTIST, that connection can be a whole lot easier. Legacy extensions such as .COM force the typical dental practice to cluster their identity into a URL like millgroupdentistry.com. Rightside's new TLDs end the cumbersome search and naming process by giving professionals clear, readable web address options, such as millgroup.dentist, or memorable, geo-specific options such as miami.dentist.

Also launching on Christmas Eve, Rightside's .REHAB domain is geared toward individuals and companies in the rehabilitation services field, an estimated $34 billion industry that continues to grow each year. The demand is high for such services, from physical rehabilitation to substance-abuse rehabilitation, and people are using the internet to get answers: The word "rehab" is the 18th costliest keyword in Google AdWords. Web addresses ending in .REHAB can also be useful for businesses that specialize in home remodeling, vintage automobile repair, or antique restoration.

By making it easy to get a new web or email address ending in .DENTIST or .REHAB, Rightside's retail registrar Name.com (open 24 hours a day for last-minute holiday shopping) and other registrar partners give the rehabilitation and dentistry communities a better way to connect with the people they want to reach.

Professionals in other fields are already finding similar new domain name options, like .LAWYER and .ATTORNEY for legal professionals and .VET for veterinarians, helpful for driving referrals and web traffic. Nearly 15,000 variations of .LAWYER and .ATTORNEY – including employment.attorney and atlantatruckinjury.attorney – have been registered since they entered general availability in October.
