Norfolk, Virginia (August 26, 2014) – Homes.com®, the online real estate resource and leading provider of real estate marketing solutions, has secured the top level domain, “.homes.” Long known as simply “.com,” “.org,” and “.net,” the internet is experiencing monumental changes with the creation of nearly 2,000 top-level domains, altering the way consumers search for homes online. A longstanding leader in search solutions and web technology, Homes.com continues to prove itself as the frontrunner in providing innovative tools and resources for partners and consumers across the country.
“The .homes’ top level domain assignment marks an evolution in how consumers will search for home-related goods, products and services,” said Terry Slattery, president of For Rent Media Solutions and Homes.com. “This step revolutionizes the industry by providing real estate professionals with an opportunity to affordably secure a domain name that streamlines the search experiences of consumers. Real estate professionals will have the convenience of procuring a domain name that includes their city or perhaps their individual or business name.”
Consistently standing out as a leader in enterprise level solutions for real estate partners, Homes.com will roll out the “.homes” domain in the near future, appealing to all industry professionals. The program will offer impactful solutions for industry partners and allow real estate professionals the opportunity to champion an easy to remember domain name resulting in quicker access by home seekers.
