Construction Websites Deconstructed – Part 2

I want to extend yesterday’s tip to register alternative domain extensions to protect your business by asking you to register one you will eventually use. Whatever your domain name is, go right now and register the .TV extension.


Because video is the new text, and it won’t be long before you are doing more with video online than any other format. It may be a few years, but you don’t want to lose out on the .TV version of your website because it will be important to have as the lines between regular television viewing and watching television online blur.

The above post is part of a short series of quick 200 word or less posts dedicated to construction websites. If you would like this series sent to you, send me an email for more details.

    I’ve been checking out your site for a while and think you are a smart man giving great advice. I can see that part of your own marketing strategy is to sell without really selling. It was working for me until I found out you are getting a kick back from godaddy. Now you advise all of us to get an extra domain name? I was following you until this.

      Not sure what you mean by a kickback Lester, but if the thousands of dollars worth of free advice aren’t what you want, then I appreciate you being a reader for as long as you were, take care.

    So Darren, I’m not quite up to snuff on the different extensions. What would be the purpose of having the .TV extension? Maybe a future video-only site?

      Hello John,

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting! You nailed it! One day, we will consume more video than text online, and the lines between watching programming on traditional TV’s and via computers and handheld devices is blurring rapidly, so owning a .tv URL makes sense.
