Registrations for .inc domain names are open, but is .inc worth it?
If you’re thinking about getting your own .inc domain name, you may want to hold off. New registrations are now open, but they aren’t quite as valuable as their commercial predecessors. Here’s what you need to know before registering your .inc domain name. You’ll also see why it might be worth waiting until the domains are officially launched in 2017 before deciding whether or not you should get yours now.
What is an Inc. Domain Name?
An Inc. Domain Name is an extension that can be added to any website’s URL in order to designate it as a business. The .inc extension automatically redirects the user to the company’s homepage and offers the following features: ability to customize your business name with an ID number; free email forwarding; free WHOIS privacy protection; and unlimited DNS hosting. Registrations for .inc domain names are open now through November 21st and will be available on a first come, first served basis so make sure you get yours before they’re gone!
Why do they matter?
.inc domains are the newest generic top-level domains (gTLDs) on the market. They were approved by ICANN in 2013 and have been available for registration since March 16th of this year. The fact that .inc domains were approved so recently might lead you to believe that they’re not worth purchasing because they’re new and haven’t been tested in the market yet. However, there are a few reasons why you might want to get an inc domain even though they’re new:
- It’s easier to find your website when people search by name. Inc websites will be listed at the top of search results page because they’re always near the beginning of a list.
Popularity – The game changer
When thinking about registering an .inc extension, you want to ask yourself whether or not it will be of use to you. If the answer is no, then there’s no point in getting one. But if your answer is yes and you need a name quickly that can’t be trademarked by anyone else (because there’s nothing stopping someone from coming up with a similar name), then having an .inc registration would be very useful. Registrations for these domains are currently open and they’re free to acquire.
Quality vs Quantity
You may be asking yourself if you should invest in an .inc domain name. After all, these new domains have just been released and there is a limited number of them available. It might seem like a good idea to grab one while they’re still around because they may increase in value over time. However, it’s important to consider whether or not the investment will pay off in the long run. One thing that you’ll want to keep in mind is how much traffic your website will generate as well as how many different services your company offers because that can play a huge factor on whether or not this investment will be worthwhile. If you’re considering purchasing an .inc domain name then make sure that you consider how much traffic your website will generate and how many different services your company offers.

Should you rush in?
The jury may still be out on whether or not an .inc domain name will be valuable in the future. But if you think that the word inc. could refer to your company’s name, then grabbing one now could be a good move. However, if you’re not sure what the future of Internet domains looks like and don’t really need one right now, then you might want to wait a bit longer before rushing in.
Experts agree on their opinion
- It might be wise to trademark the name of your company before registering any domain.
- You need to make sure you have enough money in order to register a new domain name.
- Registering a new domain name can take up to 72 hours to be activated and ready to use.

How to choose between an LLC or INC name
There are some things you should consider before registering the Inc. Domain Name. First, you will need to pay an annual fee to register the name. Second, you will also want to make sure that your business name follows the guidelines of acceptable words and phrases that can be used as a company name (i.e., not LOL). Third, if your company is not yet established then you should make sure that you have a plan in place first because registering this domain name does not give you any legal rights to use it. Fourth, even if the domain name does not apply to your business now it might later on so registration would be recommended at that point in time.
Things to remember before you register the Inc. Domain Name
The first thing you should ask yourself before registering the Inc. Domain Name is if your business name has a dot-com version. If so, you might want to register that one instead. If not, then you’ll need to decide if registering the .inc domain name would be beneficial for your business in any way. For example, some people might think that if they have a dot-com and an inc domain name their website will show up higher in search engine results. However, this doesn’t work because of how search engines rank websites.
