All about photography domain names

Photography has changed intensely over the past decade thanks to the emergence of the selfie, millions of which are taken every day. Guinness World Records have even been created for them - David Rush from the USA holds the record for the most selfies taken in the space of three minutes - he managed to take 166 during his world record attempt at MIT in Massachusetts on 10 June 2017.

True photography has nothing to do with selfies, though. Photography is both a science and an art. It takes technical training. It takes talent.

That’s why .photography domain names were created. They recognize the unique skills of photographers and celebrate them online.

How to get the best .photography domain names

.Photography domain names are suitable for both professional photography businesses and amateurs wanting to build an online portfolio of their work. Regardless of what level you are are at, though, there are a few tricks for getting the best domain for you.

Build on your brand: Before .photography was created, photographers were often forced to dilute their brands in their web address names. So Purple Turtle studios wanted to get pupleturtle.com, but couldn’t because the name belonged to a dance school in a different country. So they had to settle for purpleturtlephotography.com. Okay, it’s not the end of the world, but it’s a long and clunky web address that’s not as compelling as it could be. Now Purple Turtle has the opportunity of obtaining purpleturtle.photography to make its brand name more prominent, more memorable, and to ensure there’s less chance of a customer typing it incorrectly.

Don’t stress about SEO: A .photography domain automatically puts a keyword into your web address, so you don’t have to tear your hair out working out ways to make your website name more searchable. You can concentrate on making your name short, snappy and memorable rather than worrying about pleasing the Google bots.
