.creditunion Domain Names to Roll Out Next Year
Tuesday, June 4, 2013 6:30 AM

Imagine this fancy company link name: . The possibility of .creditunion domain names will soon be reality, thanks to preliminary approval by the Internet Corporation for Names and Numbers (ICANN) for CUNA’s request for a “dot credit union” domain name. The new domain names are expected to go live in early 2014.

CUNA recently submitted a request to ICANN for the .creditunion domain name, which was selected from among 2,000 other top-level domain name applications. The move comes two years after ICANN announced its plan to expand the number of approved top-level beyond the traditional ones such as .com, .org, .net, .edu, .coop, etc.

In addition to making credit union domain names more unique, CUNA says the new domain name has potential for positive marketing opportunities as well.

Credit unions can register their interest for the new domain by clicking here or by e-mailing . CUNA requests that credit unions express their interest by Aug. 1, 2013.
