Why a .boston web address?

Whether it’s for branding and marketing purposes, or the chance to own a piece of our beloved city, there are many reasons why a .boston domain name is a great choice.

.boston domain names work just the same as any other domain name: you can use a domain name ending in .boston in exactly the same ways you would use a domain ending in “.com”. Your website.com can become website.boston; your email@address.com can become email@address.boston;  and you can use a .boston domain to make it easy for your fans to quickly get to your social media pages (a domain like mytweets.boston can easily resolve to your Twitter account, for example!)

Using .boston domains show your Boston pride and help your fans, customers, students and the world to know you’re right here in The Hub. And because .boston domains are new, you’re likely to be able to get exactly the domain you want (unlike the overcrowded generic alternatives!)
