Create a website for a spring holiday
Spring springs into life in the Northern Hemisphere on March 20 and continues until June 21, when we officially welcome summer.
The season is packed full of holidays. And since we love domains, we tend to think of holidays in terms of domain names. You might think it’s weird, but when you’re domain-obsessed, everything can be related to domain names.
Let’s take a look at spring holidays and related domains. It might give you some inspiration to build a new site around one of your favorite spring holidays.
Spring holiday domains
Here are some fun domains you might want to register in advance of your favorite spring holidays.
St. Patrick’s Day
We’re going to cheat a bit and sneak this one into spring even though it’s a few days before the spring equinox. After all, who doesn’t love drinking green beer and pinching your friends who forget to wear green? (And why am I always the person who fails to don green clothes that day?)
Perhaps we should pinch website owners who don’t use a .GREEN domain. It’s a fun domain extension for any website that has to do with the greenest holiday of the year. In fact, StPatrick.green and StPatricks.green are both available to register at the time we’re writing this article.
Next up on the calendar is Easter, which brings a couple of things to mind.
According to Pew Research Center, more people search for ‘church’ around Easter than any other time of the year. If your church wants a shorter, easier-to-remember domain, search for a .CHURCH domain.
When I think about Easter, the first thing that comes to mind is Easter egg hunts. Believe it or not, there’s a relevant domain extension for that: .QUEST. If you’re tech-minded and looking for a fun (and educational) family project, register a .QUEST domain to create an online “egg” hunt.
April Fools Day
Ah, April Fool’s day. The day we get tricked into thinking something neat has happened only to find out it was a gag. Well, there’s a domain for that, too. Register your .FOOLEDYA domain today. *
Earth Day is a great day to show off what you or your company are doing to help protect the planet. There are lots of domain extensions to choose from for this day.
First, there’s .EARTH. Register your company name in this extension to create a website about your environmental activities. Or, if you already have a page on your site for this, you can easily forward your new .EARTH domain to that page.
An alternative is .ECO, or you can go with the same domain you bought for St. Patrick’s Day: .GREEN.
Teachers’ Day is a day to celebrate what teachers contribute to our society. Now, gifting a domain instead of an apple probably isn’t a good idea. But what about creating a site to celebrate your school’s teachers? Register a .SCHOOL domain to highlight how much you appreciate the teachers.
Just like teachers, you probably don’t want to gift mom her own domain because she’d have to figure out how to use it! So register a .MOM domain and create a website dedicated to how wonderful your mom is. If she’s like most moms, she will send a link to the website to all of her friends. “See what my wonderful child made for me!”
Memorial Day is a U.S. holiday to remember those who have died protecting the country. There are several domain names that can be used to create a website dedicated to your loved one: .MEMORIAL, .RIP, and .VET.
Sorry, dads. You can register a .MOM domain today, but dads need to wait a bit longer. Google has the rights to operate the .DAD extension and sell domains through registrars like Namecheap, but it hasn’t launched it yet.
There are some holidays in spring that are difficult to find domains for. But there’s one domain for them all: .DAY. Select a second-level domain (the part to the left of the dot) for whatever special day you want to celebrate.
A domain for a special day
When we think of registering domains, we usually think of the main domain for our company or personal website. But there are now hundreds of niche domains that can be used for just about anything. Creating a holiday-specific website is just one of the many uses. Check out all of the available domains at Namecheap.
*Since it’s (probably) not April Fools’ Day when you’re reading this, we’re just going to tell you this is a joke. This domain doesn’t exist.
