A domain for LGBTQ individuals, businesses and their allies
The dream of the internet was for it to be a place where people can connect. To meet, talk, share information, and mostly, to be themselves. For the most part, the internet has done just that. Sure, there have been setbacks and hiccups, and but where we're at today with just about everything is leaps and bounds more inclusive than where we were 25 years ago. And now we have progress on the domain front. Finally. With the new .gay namespace, people can be free to build on a domain extension designed for diversity and inclusion. Plus, on the registry level, 20% of all registration revenue is going to support LGBTQ issues and causes. It's a good, targeted TLD supporting a good cause. We can definitely get behind that.

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.
