Why register a .im domain name?
- Procla.im? Inter.im? Needatr.im? A .im lends itself to the creation of a number of creative and catchy web addresses for your brand. The namespace is still growing and contains an abundance of available short names that are bursting full of potential. This means that the possibility of you acquiring a valuable and memorable domain is much, much higher!
- IM and Instant Messenger .im is hugely popular with providers of instant messaging software and has been registered by Pidgin, Yahoo! Messenger, Adium, Meebo, Coccinella, and Trillian amongst others. If you have links to the world of instant messaging, then this is a great opportunity to align yourself to this service.
- Short and sweet With no restrictions on this ccTLD, it is becoming an increasingly popular choice for personal sites and email addresses, for example johnsmith.im or firstname.lastname@example.org. With the high availability of shorter addresses, this can really result in a unique and memorable choice for personal use.
