The perfect web address for all blogs
Having a late head start in the internet revolution, blogs came to be in 1999 but soon caught on with each and every individual wanting to own one of their own web journals. Today, having a blog is sometimes the only presence an individual has on the internet, and is generally used to describe the individual's daily activities and keeping their followers from around the world updated on what they're doing. Blogging has become a way of venting out one's feelings for some, for others it's to share their opinion with the world and some people have found their blogging passion turn into the biggest income stream for them. For as long as we can imagine, the humble diary turned blog is here to stay and .blog is an absolutely great way for individuals to establish their online presence as a blog.

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.
