According to Cisco, by 2018 more than 80% of all Internet traffic will be video. .TUBE seeks to become the choice real estate for video projects.
.TUBE is a new domain “for people who create, watch, and share video.” What began as slang for television is now a new gTLD for users to identify their online-video-channels to customers, followers and fans. Available for registration from July 7, 2016, .TUBE caters to all interests and passion.
To celebrate the launch, the team at .TUBE have created a branded theme and “Video Curator” Plugin for WordPress that can be used to quickly get a video gallery site up and running on new .TUBE domain names.
The plugin lets users grab videos from YouTube or Vimeo and create WordPress posts with one click. The theme turns them into a site that makes it easy to create new content and monetize. Users can essentially build their own channel to stream, host or post new video, and also curate content from 3rd party sites.
For users that are not into building their own channels just yet, they also have the option to redirect their .TUBE name to existing sites, to improve visibility and help fans cut through the online clutter. The team at .TUBE say that a short memorable .TUBE name extends their reach and allows users to control their “brand.” Individuals and brands, can purchase their name at .TUBE and redirect it to their existing video pages telling your customers or fans where to find them.
.TUBE says that several Fortune 100 Brands have already secured their names pre-launch, so if those who have dreamed about creating their own .TUBE act can now secure the best extension for their ideas.
General availability for the public opens on July 7th (Thursday) with www.get.tube the place to register a domain. Download the free WordPress app and get free hosting by selecting Epik as the Registrar.
