Afilias Announces General Availability of .BLACK Top-Level Domain

Global registry services provider Afilias today announced the general availability of its newest generic top level domain (gTLD): .BLACK.

When someone says "black tie" or "little black dress," adjectives like "simple," "elegant," and "chic" are implied. It's the same for the .BLACK domain. A website or email address that ends in .BLACK easily identifies premier products and high-tier, exclusive services; diamond.BLACK, limo.BLACK, tuxedo.BLACK and drink.BLACK for top-shelf spirits are just a few examples of how .BLACK represents, simply, style.

.BLACK is also serious and authoritative. Like the black robes of a judge, a .BLACK Web address lends gravitas and illustrates that you are an authoritative source on a topic or issue and that your website or email content is thoughtful and serious.

"Addresses in the .BLACK domain will enable luxury businesses and sophisticated individuals to show that they are arbiters of style," said Roland LaPlante, Senior Vice President and CMO, Afilias. "Their sophistication is a given. For the Internet, .BLACK is the new black."

To get your .BLACK domain, visit http://get.black/find-a-registrar. And follow .BLACK on Twitter (@dotBlackdomain) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/dotblacktld).
