Do You Need a .app Domain Name?
This week Google threw their hat into the ring with the new TLD - top level domain - called .app with secure encryption already packaged into the domain name itself. Kind of cool.
This article explains this latest TLD and what it's implications are better than I can:
I went ahead and bought the .app domains for my two niche websites as a back up to .com. It's a great opportunity to cozy up to Google in the search results.
Anything with .app already comes with HTTPS security, so Google ranks the secure sites higher than HTTP sites.
Here at WA we already have security imbedded in our Wordpress sites. Which costs a lot of money on other hosting companies.
I couldn't buy the .app domains on WA. I hope this changes soon. Meanwhile, I bought them on my backup - Namecheap - and will transfer them when I can.
I"m interested to see what other WA members think about this.
