Why Register .DEV Domain Name

With .dev software, game and app developers have a new home on the internet. The .dev domain name is a generic top level domain (gTLD) recently introduced as part of ICANN’s new gTLD expansion program, made available for registrations on 28th February, 2019. Currently there are 206,558 registered .dev domain names and the numbers continue to increase dramatically with time. The .dev domain, a shorthand for the word “developer” is best suited for software developers, game developers, and application developers in search of a personalized URL in their web address reflecting their passion to code and what they do for a living. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that .dev domain name helps tech savvy professionals grab the spotlight from the traditional .com domain name addresses with a tech oriented URL. However the dev domain is not only restricted for use by software engineers unlike .archi reserved for architects only. Dev domain can registered by construction and property developers as well to showcase their portfolio for residential and commercial development projects. Initially Google, and Amazon were competing in a race to own the .dev domain registry, however later on after an anticipated private deal between the two giants, Amazon withdrew their application leaving Google the only primary applicant for the .dev domain name auction. One major factor which outshines .dev domains from the traditional .com domain names is its submission for the Chromium-maintained HSTS preload list. The preload list is used by major browsers including Google Chrome helping them identify and hardcode HTTPS only sites. As a domain registrar of .dev domain name you need to follow standard guidelines maintained by the HSTS preload list. When you register a .dev domain name you must have an SSL certificate enabled on the domain for the website to successfully load in browsers with HTTPS encryption. Once your website has the required encryption you can submit your domain to hstspreload.org which will help your domain name be hardcoded as HTTPS only in Google Chrome’s HSTS Preload List. This improved security measure has been adopted in order to keep .dev domains secure from unprecedented phishing and brute force attacks. The good news is that all domains registered with Zohoster provide a free SSL certificate for the complete year at absolutely no extra costs. So when you register your .dev domain name with us you need not to worry about a thing. Showcase your portfolio of websites, games, and application programs you’ve developed, or software projects you’ve worked for on an intuitive .dev domain name.

Whether you’re a recent software graduate looking to score your very first job or an established blogger actively posting content about software programming, development tools and feedback on programing frameworks the .dev domain name is your perfect bet.
