The right domain is a work of .ART

Are you an artist, a gallery owner or do you want to start living together art and culture on the web? Here are some tips to get you started on the right foot.

THE RIGHT DOMAIN IS A WORK OF .ART

Nothing can replace a trip to an art gallery or a museum. But a premium .ART domain can certainly help draw more visitors and keep customers engaged during closures. .ART domains also facilitate opportunities to showcase individual work or projects, and provide the perfect website address for creative businesses or organisations. From photographers to artists, art sellers, art recruiters, curators, galleries, museums, and creative start-ups – the .ART extension is used widely online, and it’s easy see why…

WHY .ART IS WORTH IT

‘The art worlds only domain’: .ART is the only domain zone created specifically for the global creative community. Nothing says art sector more than… well… .ART It’s universally understood and integrated in all languages.

.ART is relevant and connected to your industry/business: It sends out a professional image, inspires trust from your visitors, and helps them easily find your business online.

.ART provides a wide choice of short, and memorable domain names: .ART offers a wide range of domain name options so you can find a domain name that is clear, concise and relevant.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT .ART DOMAIN PROVIDER

There are countless providers selling domains online and, for many, the options are overwhelming. But don’t just pick any old one – some providers offer you a better chance of success in your online project or business. We recommend OVHcloud, the number 1 domain registrar in Europe with over 5 million domain name registrations worldwide, and here’s why:

The provider offers a re-direct from your social media channels: Socials are big in the art world – especially Facebook and Instagram. A premium .ART domain name re-direct gives you an alternative communication channel to boost your website visits and increase your reach.

OVHcloud let you configure the extension with your professional email address: Your email account is the most direct form of communication with your audience/customers. Make it professional and effective by using your website extension in the address.

Still, effortless DNS management ensures you can easily change the DNS zone of your domain name, so it points directly to your site. It also means you can adapt email settings and create subdomains (images.mysite.art)
