Santa Monica, California (PRWEB) March 06, 2014
In January of 2014, TechCrunch announced the availability of several new domain extensions. Now, only 2 months later, the release of over 50 new domain extensions are available – and .directory is promised to be the most popular extension for directory websites.
Directory websites are used for a variety of purposes – most offer listings of people, places and other useful data. One could argue that a majority of websites on the Internet are directory-driven. Even a blog, for example, is essentially a directory of related web articles. The availability of the new .directory extension has further solidified the value directory-driven websites provide to the World Wide Web.
Beyond building online communities, directory websites have proved to be successful business models for generating passive revenue. Sponsored listings, banner advertisements and lead generation are the most popular models.
Software as a service providers like Brilliant Directories allow directory owners to easily launch, scale and monetize their directory websites. The marriage of the new .directory extension and the Brilliant Directories platform is a formula for success.
Brilliant Directories is actively encouraging online entrepreneurs to launch their directory business ideas as soon as possible. The land grab for .directory domain names is well underway - by the time most people realize the value of a .directory, domain hoarders will have snapped up every noun in the dictionary.
