Now, professional designers of all types can end their websites and accompanying email in .design rather than .com, .net, and all those old-school options. The .design domain functions in the same way as any other, but it makes your site and branding explicit, so your site, email, and business cards can finally match your smart and innovative design aesthetic. Tell the world what you do and what you care about in a fresh way.

     

    As an RGD Member, you can register a .design domain name, matching email address, and easy Weebly website builder free for an entire year, plus receive the lowest annual renewal costs anywhere. See details at RGD.design.
