General Availability Period for New .PINK Top-Level Domain Opens

Global registry services provider Afilias wants you to think .PINK. Afilias today announced April 17, 2014, as the general availability launch date of the new .PINK generic top-level domain (gTLD). The .PINK domain is unrestricted, meaning anyone, anywhere can register a .PINK domain name.

Like the color pink, the .PINK domain has a big personality! Impressive and expressive, a .PINK address is a celebration of all the things you or your business are passionate about.

Use .PINK for a fundraising website or blog to inspire others to share in your journey and stir them into action!

Let .PINK connect your business to a youthful, optimistic and expressive audience. Pick a .PINK domain for a personal blog where you share your style, D.I.Y., art, musings and passions.

If it’s a girl, tell everyone with a custom website and a .PINK domain.

And if you embrace the optimism of pink, you can show the world that you “Think .PINK!”

“Actress Audrey Hepburn famously said, ‘I believe in pink.’ So does Afilias,” said Roland LaPlante, Senior Vice President and CMO, Afilias. “The color pink is obviously popular; a quick online search for ‘pink’ brings up hundreds of millions of hits. Web addresses that use .PINK will reinforce a wide range of positive and optimistic messages, from the joyous celebration of baby girls and their growing up years to the courage and compassion needed to find a cure for serious illnesses. Many businesses and organizations use pink as an important identifier, and a .PINK address can help them multiply the power of their message.”

.PINK domains can be registered for up to 10 years at a time. Many registrars offer website building, email and other services along with .PINK domains to make your online presence work exactly as you envision it!

The .PINK general availability period opens at 16:00:00 UTC on April 17, 2014. You can learn more about .PINK and find a registrar for your .PINK domain at http://pink.afilias.info. And join .PINK on social media:
