Confidence in the Cloud

Why choose a .DOWNLOAD domain?

As tech relies more and more on virtual storage and cloud computing, the digital download has become an essential way to obtain data, services, information and software. But it also comes with certain risks – viruses, malware, and phishing are all serious threats to online security and can often be traced back to a bad download.

Is a .DOWNLOAD domain extension right for me?

The .download TLD (top-level domain) offers a relevant and easily identifiable namespace that can indicate safety and confidence to a user. Pair this namespace with an SSL certificate from Namecheap, and you’ll offer valuable peace of mind for your clients, customers and visitors.
