A dream came true! We finally grabbed a .tips domain name and quickonline.tips is another memorable way to access the site (besides the short qot.co for easier mobile typing). This gives the QOT branding an exceptional boost and expands our quickonlinetips domain portfolio.
The .tips domain was just launched with other special new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) like .guru and are rapidly being registered across the globe by how-to and advice sites. Top domain name registrars are offering these on first come basis and you too can keep a lookout for a domain name which may fit your brand the right way.
Setup Domain Forwarding
So what happens when you type the domain name quickonline.tips, you get redirected to quickonlinetips.com. Its simple to set up domain forwarding so that people visiting your site are forwarded to the new url.
From the domain name manager, add forwarding which will set up a 301 permanent redirect
Once that is done, and the DNS propagation is complete, the domain name will start redirecting to your preferred domain name.
The new domain name is great for superior branding and is a great asset for the future. Note that we can continue to use the domain name without depending on changing usage patterns and popularity of different TLD’s like .com, .net etc.
Now looking to design a new logo (we got our logo through a logo design contest), which we can use for better branding and splash it across the the current QOT merchandise at the QuickOnlineTips Store on cafepress.
.TIPS domain name pricing
It cost us $25.17 to register the .tips domain name and an additional $7.99 for private registration. Totally worth grabbing the quickonline.tips … in time.
