It’s World Press Freedom Day! Do you have your .PRESS domain yet?

UNESCO commemorates 3rd May as World Press Freedom Day, a worldwide event that celebrates the fundamental principles and freedom of the press. The day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in December 1993, following the recommendation of UNESCO's General Conference. On this day, organizations around the globe organize various events and campaigns to assess the state of press freedom worldwide, protect the media’s independence and pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

How is .PRESS helping the cause of World Press Freedom Day?

.PRESS is a dedicated domain name extension for the journalism industry. If you have stories that the world should know, then one of the most authentic and credible ways to do that is through a .PRESS domain. This year, Radix, the registry that operates .PRESS domains, has partnered with Society of Professional Journalists to celebrate the freedom to ex.press. As part of this association, a portion of Radix’s revenue for the month of May 2018 will be donated towards SPJ’s efforts for defending the freedom of the press. Dynadot is proud to support this campaign by offering .PRESS domains at a special price for the month of May.

Who should have a .PRESS domain?

The domain extension is apt for journalists, publishers, media professionals, news corporations, and bloggers. It gives individuals a credible platform to share opinions, share stories and influence their readers. It gives the opinion makers and information sharers the perfect way to establish their credibility and grow their online reach and relevance.

What are the various ways in which .PRESS can be used?
