However, 32% of small businesses in India are completely offline. That means they are missing out on many potential customers.' With Google My Business, these SME's will be able to make an instant website with a free BUSINESSNAME.business.site domain name.

The domain extension is versatile, hence it works well for all industries and can be moulded for any business, big or small."

With nearly 500,000 domains registered on .SITE and 51% of them being active, .SITE is one of the most popular domain extensions worldwide. In a study conducted by SEDO, the world's largest marketplace for domain names, .SITE ranked 3rd in the top 10 most valuable new extensions with highest potential for success.

The business.site domain is already in use by Google My Business program globally. A google search with site:business.site, shows 400,000+ results of websites that are already live on business.site.
