Why a Location-based Top-level Domain is Important

Why is associating your organization with a top-level domain that's location-based so important?

If you're looking to get traffic to your business or organization, here's why.

Obviously, we live in a digital age. The paper phonebook is essentially never used anymore by most. We all depend on our devices to look up whatever we want These hardware devices depend on software, typically a browser such as Google Chrome or Apple Safari. 

If you want to get the attention of someone, you’re going to have to use some form of digital content and delivery system. Email is one form. Texting is another. But for mass marketing, the Internet is the most dominant way to communicate a message. It is an ideal medium where lots of people potentially see your message because it allows you to create content easily that then is available to everyone to see instantly. This is insane power!

The problem is, the message you want people to see is competing against an avalanche of information available on the Internet. It is said that every day slightly more than 547,200 new websites are created globally.

How Can You Compete? A location-based domain will help in the efforts to increase traffic to your message, whether it’s selling products or enticing visitors to your store. Associating with rule-controlled, location-based, top-domain extensions will enhance and propel your listing to the top of search engine results pages.

Here's How: Search engine results are determined by taking many factors into account, but the most weighted consideration is the domain name. The domains managed by Click IT on the Handshake blockchain, are governed by the main rule that only locations within the geographical area. This is why location-based, category domains are most desirable.

Using the blockchain, Click IT is working with a team of experts to secure top-level, location-based domains, such as .chagrinfalls.

The blockchain is enabling us to acquire top-level domains, based on a structure much like the cryptocurrency market was created, where the building blocks used need not be guided by institutions, but instead through a chain of peer approvals.  It is democracy in its most refined form.

At Click IT, we believe, like physical land, digital property that's location-based has a lot of value that can easily be tapped into. Having a category and location in your domain name, besides being easily remembered, will assist in achieving a dominant position on Internet listings.

The .chagrinfalls Domains Will Exist on the Handshake Blockchain

The Handshake blockchain is a newly developed peer-to-peer root DNS. It is a proof-of-work protocol like Bitcoin. Handshake names are top-level domain extensions that exist on the Handshake blockchain network. Like .com, .net, and .org, .chagrinfalls is a top-level domain extension.

By making a purchase, you’re reserving your domain which is a placeholder on the .chagrinfalls top-level domain extension.

These domains do not resolve currently on regular DNS sites. Our expectation is that browsers will begin resolving blockchain domains in the near future. To learn more about the Handshake blockchain, click here.

The .com extension is by far the most popular and has become the standard in the US when deciding on an extension. But search engines now are presenting results based on the location of the searcher, so a location-based extension is advantageous, especially since search engines weigh heavily the domain name when deciding which website page to list in the top results.

The blockchain is enabling us to acquire top-level domains, based on a structure much like the cryptocurrency market was created, where the building blocks used need not be guided by institutions, but instead through a chain of peer approvals.

The .chagrinfalls extension tells the visitor where the domain owner is located. Top-level domains, such as lawyer.chagrinfalls.com, further indicates a sites' subject matter.
