You're in the inner circle now.
In the world of business, the term associates commonly refers to the a company or agency made up of a group of individuals and equity owners. But at ten characters, the word tends to lengthen domain names quite a bit. With the new .associates generic top-level domain (gTLD), you can finally cut the .com, while simultaneously cutting your domain down to what's relevant to your brand. If you're part of a law firm, marketing agencies or other professional service looking for a better way to direct people to your online presence, register your .associates domain today.
Then put your •associates to work

Your domain registration questions, answered
How does getting a domain work?
There are two pieces to this equation. First, there are domain registries that own the individual top-level domains (like Verisign, which owns .com, .net, and a few other TLDs). Then there's us, the domain registrar, which provides a big online store that houses all the TLDs in one convenient location. When you register a domain, we reserve it for you through the individual registries... like an Amazon of sorts if you were looking for an HDMI cable.
Are there any additional things I need to buy?
Nope, every domain we sell comes with all the bells and whistles attached. If the TLD supports WHOIS privacy, we turn it on automatically. If you want to transfer your domain to another registrar, we don't have any secret add-ons to keep you tied down. And we don't place any weird ads or parking pages on unused domains — we don't see that much anymore, but it was a thing companies have done in the past.
