Before the more than 1,200 new niche gTLDs like .beer, .coffee, .ninja, and .space, there were only just super generic TLDs like .com, .org, .net and country-specific ones like .us, .fr, and .co.uk. Back then, if you wanted a cool TLD, you had to get creative.
And thus, a crop of unintentionally significant domains became popular: .mx (the ccTLD for Mexico, but also short for “mail”), .io (the ccTLD for the British Indian Ocean Territory but also “Input/Output”) and .pw (the ccTLD for the Republic of Palaos, but also “professional web” or “password”).
Well, this month, we’re going old-school this month by offering the latter, .pw, for just $0.99 per year (it’s normally $10.00 per year at A rates), from February 1 through February 29, 2016 at 2:59 PM PST. And while .pw does stand for “password”, your .pw domain doesn’t have to be secret.
What’s your .pw?
