8 Critical Questions Answered about the new .LAWYER and .ATTORNEY Domain Names

On October 8th .LAWYER and .ATTORNEY domain names will be made available to the general public.

This means that domain names like www.yourname.attorney, www.Litigation.attorney or www.IP.laywer will be offered for the very first time at www.momentumnames.com.

In response to a number of questions regarding this process we have put together the following information:

What are these names and why is this important?

October 8 is the first date that domain names like yourname.lawyer and www.Employment.attorney become generally available for purchase. With 1.2 million lawyers and law students in the US alone it’s possible that your individual name or preferred term of art may have several potential purchasers which means that if you don’t act immediately you may be in danger of losing your preferred name. Names are available right now in advance as part of an early access program but are offered at a premium.

What restrictions are there on purchase?

None. Other than trademark restrictions, you are free to choose the name that best suits you.

Why should I obtain a .ATTORNEY or .LAWYER Domain?

  • It is a powerful marketing tool that will allow you to get your message to market quicker and simpler
  • It signals your profession to the world in a way that .com doesn’t
  • It enables you to control the intellectual property associated with your name
  • It ensures that even if you change firms or go solo, your clients can always find you.
  • It may assist with Google and other search engine rankings

What can I do with my new domain?

There are lots of options

  • Point it to your existing biography page on your firm website
  • Add it to your business cards
  • Build a website on the page

I am a law student. Can I purchase a domain name?

Yes. We very much encourage those starting out on their legal careers to obtain .LAWYER and .ATTORNEY domain names. There may be an advantage in applying for a job from an email address ending in .ATTORNEY rather than Gmail or Hotmail.

Can I get my domain name early?

The new .LAWYER and .ATTORNEY domain extensions are currently in the Pre-Registration phase, which means it is already possible for professionals to express interest in securing www.yourname.attorney or www.maritime.attorney for a higher price. General Availability is scheduled for October 8th and initial demand is expected to be high on that date as legal professionals race to secure the web addresses that best identify their specialties.

How much does it cost, how long does it take to obtain one and why should I go to www.momentumnames.com over someone else?

.LAWYER and .ATTORNEY domain names cost as little as $35 and take just 60 seconds to purchase. Interested parties can check availability of their preferred name at www.MomentumNames.com. In addition, www.MomentumNames.com has secured the lowest possible price for .ATTORNEY and .LAWYER domain names so you won’t find them cheaper anywhere else on the world wide web.

What else should I know?

In addition to regular domain names there are a number of reserved premium names available for attorneys looking to brand themselves in a specific sector. For example www.advertising.lawyer or www.tax.attorney which is a great way to establish your, or your firms pre-eminence in a particular vertical sector.
