Why register a .ASIA domain?
Asia is one of the 7 continents in the world comprising of 48 countries. The entire region is totally diverse in terms of climate, history, culture, languages and traditions. When it comes to doing business, many Asian counties are highly competitive such as Japan, South Korea and Singapore. American as well as European companies are interested in placing their investments in Asia because of the high percentage of consumer spending and the dizzying number of opportunities to grow a business and make money.
Before you expand your brand name in Asia, consider buying a .ASIA website for your online presence. Here are the reasons why it would be a smart move:
- Asia is such a big territory. The most logical approach to penetrate into its markets is through a strong and reputable online presence. You want to create a professional website that would represent your company name in all of 48 Asian countries. A dotAsian website makes sense because users will know that your web page is created mainly for Asian audiences.
- Asia is the most populous continent in the planet. A huge percentage of these people are internet literate and make purchases online for their needs. This means a bigger marketplace for your products and services. How do you get access to these people in an efficient and cost-effective way? Remember that language in Asia is diversified as each country has its own native language. Setting up a ccTLD website for each country would be expensive and tedious. Hence, choosing dotAsia domain suffix will be the right choice.
- DotAsia domains are the most affordable sponsored gTLD in the internet. For as low as $US14, you can start your own Asian website. This is a small investment compared to other generic domain suffixes.
- dotAsia is a popular domain extension that is being searched by millions of online consumers every day. It is guaranteed to drive organic traffic to your website.
