LONDON, UK, Dec. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UK Intis Telecom LTD announces the launch of the new top-level domain name zone (TLD) - it.com. This new domain name extension represents a new & intelligent solution to the ever-depleting availability of great, short, and easy-to-remember domain names in other zones.
The domain name has been in Conditional General Availability (CGA) phase over the past few months before announcing its official Sunrise phase, a period for brand & trademark owners from all over the world to access the registry and reserve the domain name before anyone else.
The it.com domain was acquired in 2021 for $3.8 million, marking it as the biggest domain sale of the year. It was purchased by UK-based Intis Telecom, which has been operating globally in the telecommunications and technology sphere for over 14 years, its operations spanning 180 countries across the globe.
All websites that use the it.com extension will have an opportunity to reach a global audience, thanks to its resemblance to the IT & Internet industries and the various technological abbreviations that IT represents. Last but not least, it's also a good opportunity for businesses that target the Italian market, being short for Italy.
