.Build Constructs Niche Presence Online With ARI Registry Services

The building and construction industry is set for the biggest digital evolution in its history with the global launch of the .build Top-Level Domain over the weekend.

.build joined the likes of .com, .net and .org live on the Internet when web infrastructure specialists ARI Registry Services facilitated the delegation of the new namespace yesterday.

The .build Top-Level Domain is designed specifically for the online needs of the building industry and beyond. From toys to towers, .build will be the Internet hub for builders of every kind.

Jeremy Ebbels, General Manager — Registry Services — Global Division at ARI Registry Services, congratulated .build on the achievement.

"The launch of the .build Top-Level Domain will be a game-changer for contractors, designers and engineers seeking to carve out a niche online presence," Mr Ebbels said.

"We know the building and construction industry has enormous potential online and is currently underrepresented in the digital sphere.

"An Oxford Economics report found the global construction industry will grow by more than 70% to reach $15 trillion by 2025. The .build namespace is perfectly positioned to service this dramatic growth."

George Minardos, CEO at Dot Build, welcomed the announcement.

"The .build Top-Level Domain will be more than just another generic domain namespace; it will be an online community dedicated to serving builders through enhanced search, website design, news, information and virtual markets," Mr Minardos said.

"We are excited to be part of creating an online community designed specifically for the building world. Our aim is to create the most authoritative location on the web for content related to the building and construction industries."

"For the first time in Internet history anyone who builds anything can get a specific domain name which will say what they do. With a .build extension, both a website and an email will communicate instantly a company's function in a way a .com, .net or .org cannot do."

Mr Minardos thanked ARI Registry Services for their support with .build.

"We could not have achieved this milestone without the guidance and support of ARI Registry Services. Their technical expertise and knowledge of the program has been invaluable in the launch of our new Top-Level Domain."

.build domain names are currently available for registration. For an updated list of retailers please visit www.dotbuild.co.
