MONTREAL, Oct. 9, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, PointQuébec unveils eighteen Quebec companies that support the new ".QUEBEC" domain name as part of the Pioneers program.
As the first users of the new Quebec identity on the Web, these companies embody Quebec's diversity and exemplify our strengths and successes. They have expressed interest in becoming pioneers to lead the way and set an example of what can be achieved with a .QUEBEC domain name.
New geographical suffixes (or gTLDs) have already started a revolution in the dissemination of information on the Web. Unlike .COM, where practically all short and relevant names are no longer available, the .QUEBEC domain offers a multitude of new possibilities. Just like the companies using .LONDON, .AFRICA, .PARIS or .MELBOURNE, Quebec companies are proud to be at the forefront of this new global movement of Web territorialization.
A domain name like .QUEBEC is a powerful marketing tool for businesses. "In addition to keeping control of your brand's Web presence, acquiring a .QUEBEC domain will, among other benefits, help you enjoy a better ranking and bring you closer to your customers by displaying your location in Quebec," said Normand Fortier, Vice President of Operations at PointQuébec.
Here is the official list of companies that have already activated their new .QUEBEC domain name as part of the Pioneers program, or will do so in the coming days:
Only one month left to pre-register your brands!
As of November 18, the official launch date, registration will be on a first come, first served basis. After this date, there is no guarantee that companies can acquire their desired name. PointQuébec therefore invites them to take advantage of the pre-registration period and reserve their .QUEBEC domain name before November 11.
For more information on the registration process and the various registrars and resellers, visit the PointQuébec Web site.
