Snuggle up with a .pet in Sunrise

When the first two computers were networked together however-many years ago in some university’s computer science research lab, those present probably didn’t realize that they were witnessing the birth of the world’s greatest venue for the free circulation of photos and videos of pets.

Dogs, cats, goldfish, ferrets (or marmots as the case may be), rodents of unusual size, canaries, parakeets, turtles, frogs … as long as they’re owned by humans, the Internet has become their home perhaps even more than it has for us humans.

Great news for the free propagation of domestic animal images, then, because .pet is entering the Sunrise phase. During this phase, .pet domains will be available for $102.87 per year. There’s no Landrush for .pet, and on February 23 at 8:00 AM PST, this extension becomes available in the GoLive phase for $20.79 per year at A rates.

The .pet TLD doesn’t just have to be for cute domestic animals, though. A lot of words ending in -pet … snippet, trumpet, poppet (or puppet). So even those of you with crippling allergies can at least have a .pet domain name to cuddle up with at night.
