Plus: Introducing Design.blog — a new site for and by people who love to create.
It’s Time: Apply For Early Access to Your Own .blog Domain Name
If you’ve been looking for the perfect address for your blog, it’s about to get even easier. Millions of new .blog domain names (like yourname.blog) will be available this November — and starting today, you can apply to secure your own domain name.
Just go to get.blog and apply to pre-register the domain you want. Like .com before it, .blog is clear and accessible, and it creates millions of fresh, new options for naming your blog. It’s the perfect way to personalize your home on the web.
With a domain like .blog, you can get a name that truly matches your identity. Plus, you’ll get the same Google search benefits as any other custom domain.
How to apply for your .blog name
Early applications start at $250 USD, and will be open until November 9th. It’s the best way to secure your own .blog domain ahead of the November 21st launch.
After the launch, any .blog domain that isn’t taken will be available at get.blog, starting at the standard yearly price of $30.
