dotHealth LLC announced today the general availability of the new .health top-level domain (TLD), the home for health online. General Availability is the third phase of the .health launch – the previous two phases allowed early access for trademark holders and verified members of the health industry to gain access to .health domains before the general public.
.health domain names have already been registered by industry-leading brands such as Mayo Clinic, United Healthcare, Pfizer, Apple, Google, and Amazon. Whether they are using their .health domain to launch a new product/service, rebrand an existing website with a better name, expand to a new market, or simply provide quick access via a branded shortener, many great health companies and organizations are already using their .health domain names for live websites, including:
A more comprehensive list of brands and organizations using .health domain names can be found at http://www.get.health/casestudies.
“We’re excited and energized by how quickly the health industry has secured great names and begun building meaningful content on their .health domains,” Jose Ignacio Rasco, CEO of dotHealth. “With both the Trademark and Industry Access phases complete, General Availability marks an integral step necessary to continue building .health as the home for health online.”
Registrants who adopt .health domains will be subject to stringent terms and policies that ensure the integrity of the extension and deter misuse. These terms and registration policies (found at http://www.get.health/documentation) were developed by dotHealth with the assistance of an advisory board of health and technology experts. In addition, all domains are monitored by both Neustar and LegitScript to protect against content that is unsafe, illegal, or puts internet users’ health and safety at risk.
During the first two launch phases, .health was available at a limited number of domain retailers. As of today, fifty domain retailers are offering .health domains. The full list of domain retailers that are offering .health domains can be found at http://www.get.health/registrars.
dotHealth LLC is the official domain registry for .health, the domain extension for brands, organizations, and people who provide high-quality health information, products, and services. .Health is designed to be the premier address for those who are advancing the health and wellness space.
