New gTLD in Focus

The TLD in focus this week is .CODES.

.codes goes LIVE into General Availability on 23rd April .


A .codes domain can have several uses.

A “code” is any system used to simplify information, whether as a code of conduct, a building code, or programming code. .codes provides a domain namespace for all uses of the term “code” and can be utilized by any individual, company, or organization, making it the perfect extension for creating glossaries of code terms, giving advice on performing to code or coding, and establishing peer forums for code-sharing and problem-solving.

Also, a .codes domain can be leveraged by companies that sell goods and services over the internet. The domain offers such businesses a dedicated web address for promotion voucher codes or coupon codes.

Thus, a .codes domain makes an effective web address for sites that offer coupon codes, IT Professionals & Companies and any other company that deals in digits.

Here’s the pricing for .codes on the system:


.codes $44.95


Here’s a look at the potential selling price of a .codes domain across the major Registrars too:
