Launch of .diy on January 24, 2024

A lifestyle that can be summed up in 3 letters with worldwide recognition deserved an extension. Now the Internet Naming Co  has done just that for advocates of “Do It Yourself”.

What would be the point of the Internet if we couldn’t learn to tinker, cook, garden, code, knit, fish and gain (a little) autonomy? DIY is an acronym that sums up a philosphy, but also a hashtag that links millions of publications. A .diy extension is another way of exchanging ideas, reminding us that not everything is for sale, and that there are also things you can create yourself.

If you’re in the business of selling products and services, that doesn’t mean you can’t share your expertise and establish your reputation in your field. And if you have nothing to sell, you can share your passion, and it will find its audience.

Be among the first to register your domain name with this new extension, as early as the Sunrise phase if your trademark is registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH), or during the Early Access phase preceding General Availability.
