Wikipedia about aero-domains

Interesting article about .aero
Aero-Domains: For the aviation community by the aviation community (PresseBox) (Koeln, ) Wikipedia reports, that the aero-domains is derived from aeronautics and that the aero-domains are"a generic top-level domain (gTLD) used in the Domain Name System of the Internet."

The aero-domain was "the first sponsored top-level domain based on a single industrial theme." Wikipedia continues:" The aero domain is reserved for companies, organizations, associations, government agencies, and individuals in aviation-related fields."

The aero-domain was "created in 2002 and is operated by SITA. SITA created and operates the Dot Aero Council."

Wikipedia explains:"Two-letter codes under .aero are reserved for airlines according to the IATA Airline Designators. While three-letter codes were initially reserved for airports (IATA airport code), they were released for registration by the larger aviation and aerospace community on December 1, 2008. The aero top-level domain was initially approved in 2001 for a 5-year term expiring December 17, 2006 as part of a proof-of-concept of new top-level domains. The agreement was extended in October 2006 for a six month term until June 17, 2007,[2] and continued to be renewed on a June–December six-month cycle through June 17, 2009.[3] In 2009, SITA and ICANN completed a new 10-year sponsorship agreement for the operation of aero."

The domain names must no longer reflect company's name or a trade mark since September 2 2002. You can register now at .aero the name of your choice, e.g. a product or service.

You can get these names with .aero, when they are not available in .com. Listen to what the Internet "gurus" have to say about what names to buy: "As we've frequently reported in our SE Book & Newsletter, placing keywords right in your domain name can give your site a major boost on search engines. We've also reported that some engines are no longer accepting sub-directory pages. This is one of the reasons the smart marketing pros have been buying keyword-phrase domain names. They use them as doorway pages to boost traffic to their sites." says Stephen Mahaney, author of The Unfair Advantage Book on Winning the Search Engine Wars. Michael Campbell points out, in Nothing But 'Net, "The reason we want keywords in the domain name is that search engines often get 'tuned' to find, and give better positioning to, domains with keywords in them." Declan Dunn, author of Winning the Affiliate Game, sent out a memo to his affiliates advising "To get on top of the search engines, one of the critical keys is a good domain name LOADED with keywords." Declan goes on to say "This news is spreading among WebMasters, SearchEngine Meisters, Internet marketers, and big corporations. Don't wait."
