.DIRECTORY Domain Information

Prior to the global adoption of the Dewey Decimal System, library books were stored on shelves according to height and date of acquisition, making public browsing almost impossible. Some may argue that the way websites have traditionally been indexed via search engines is almost as limiting for the user. However with the advent of new Top Level Domains, the Internet is about to offer the best chance yet to catalogue your website in the right place. The new .directory domain not only solves the long standing issue of search indexing, but also greatly increases the “stumbled upon” aspect that provides organic user growth for so many web directories.

You only have one chance to get your ideal .directory domain name, so act now. There is no second place.

.directory Availability Information

Although we make every effort to ensure our availability checker is accurate, there is a possibility that we may show reserved/premium domains as available due to the early stage of roll out for this domain.

If you submit an order for a domain that is later identified as reserved then we will unfortunately be unable to complete the registration and you will be provided a full refund.

If you submit an order for a domain that is later identified as premium then you will have two options available to you:

  1. Pay the additional premium rate to secure your domain
  2. Receive a refund, in which case even fees stated as "non-refundable" will be refunded.

We thank you for your understanding during this exciting transformative stage of the domain industry.
