Claim Your .REALTOR Domain

What is .REALTOR?

You're probably familiar with the domain extension .com and maybe even .org, .edu, and .gov.  But did you know that pretty soon hundreds - if not thousands - of new domain extensions will exist?  

The new domain extensions can be for just about anything, including real estate.  That’s why the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) secured the new .REALTOR domain: to clearly provide a trusted source for real estate information online and to bring order to this increasingly complicated online world.  Like the term REALTOR®, only REALTORS® can use .REALTOR domains, making it the clearest way to show consumers you are a member of NAR, and you adhere to a higher standard of ethics and are a source they can trust.

Why use .REALTOR?

Having your own .REALTOR domain benefits you in the following ways:

  • Since every domain ends in .REALTOR, indicating REALTOR® status, members can focus on selecting the best domain name and market themselves and their business.
  • .REALTOR offers a clean slate of domain names to choose from, whereas most desirable domains are already taken in .com.
  • Bring order and consistency to the currently disorganized real estate space on the Internet. Anyone can create a .com site, but only REALTORS® can use a .REALTOR domain.
  • The first domain is FREE for the first year for the first 500,000 NAR members and the first 10,000 CREA members.
  • Directly connects members to the $5 billion internationally recognized REALTOR® brand, delivering additional branding and market value – just like placing the REALTOR® logo on your business cards or wearing the REALTOR® pin.
  • Immediately identifies REALTOR® membership, and differentiates REALTORS® from other nonmember professionals.
  • Establish a branded destination for consumers to ensure they’re dealing with a REALTOR®.
  • Builds a TLD that establishes .REALTOR as a trusted source when searching for real estate information online.
  • Communicates the positive attributes of trust, professionalism and community to consumers by its use of the REALTOR®name.
  • The Internet is evolving and NAR has proactively positioned REALTORS® to be at the forefront of this change.
  • Positions REALTORS® with a competitive edge in the online real estate space by enabling the opportunity for future innovation, for example, a .REALTOR search engine, making it easier for consumers to locate REALTORS® and real estate services.
  • Establishes rules and standards of use that differentiate the .REALTOR domain from all other domains.
  • Search engines like Google are focused on delivering relevant results. The .REALTOR domain tells search engines what kind of content to expect on a website, making it more likely to appear in search results when a consumer is searching for the term “REALTOR®”.
  • Includes an optional FREE profile website for U.S. members. An example can be found here.
