Blacknight Secures .Press Name
Irish domain hosting firm Blacknight has become one of the earliest recipients of a .Press domain name.
Blacknight acquired Blacknight.Press as a part of the pioneer phase run by the Radix registry, before the top-level domain (TLD) name becomes available to general public.
Michele Neylon, CEO of Blacknight, says that he is thrilled to be an early adopter of the .Press domain.
“We have been advocates for and champions of new TLDs from the get go and are excited to finally not just offer them to the public but to put them into our own use.
“This is a TLD that will have great use cases and wide adoption within the press industry and for anyone who would like to contain all of their personal press in one place.”
“Companies will be able to use .Press domains as a dedicated PR portal to publish press releases and interact with the media, customers, investors and other key stakeholders.”
The .Press TLD will become generally available on September 17. (August 2014)
