Rightside Introduces Top Level Domain for Real Estate and Retail

KIRKLAND, Wash., Jan. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rightside (Nasdaq:NAME), a leading provider of domain name services that advance the way businesses and consumers define and present themselves online, today announced the launch of .FORSALE, the third new Top Level Domain (TLD) to join Rightside's portfolio in 2015. Well positioned for real estate and retail, .FORSALE creates an ideal place for companies and sales professionals to build online brands and businesses.

Today there are over two million licensed real estate professionals in the U.S., in addition to millions of retail businesses throughout North America, for which .FORSALE offers an asset for building brand recognition and consumer awareness. FORSALE creates a way to present attractive transaction opportunities and connect directly with consumers by clearly stating the purpose of a sales-oriented website via its URL, from selling automobiles, furniture, to most any consumer good imaginable. For the real estate community, .FORSALE offers an online platform for distributing information, displaying available properties, and connecting homebuyers with real estate agents in their search areas.

From bargain hunters to marketers, participants in the retail industry also stand to benefit from the new .FORSALE domain. By enabling retailers to build a strong web presence and open their online doors to the largest possible market, .FORSALE can help showcase the depth and breadth of retail offerings.

Through Rightside's registrar, Name.com, and partnerships with other registrars, getting a new web or email address ending in .FORSALE is now a simple process, one that is connecting real estate professionals and retail businesses with relevant, memorable domains for their companies.

The new .FORSALE web domain joins Rightside's other TLDs geared toward small businesses and entrepreneurs. Rightside's portfolio includes .MORTGAGE, .DENTIST, .VET, .AUCTION, and .MARKET, all of which became widely available last year.
