Origins of the .SOY extension
This extension finds its origins in 2014 when it was presented to ICANN as a new generic first level extension (gTLD).
These extensions can be open to all or restricted to a sector of activity for example.
Under the .SOY, the conditions remain open to all.
Meanings & applications
The . SOY has two different meanings that make it possible to adapt its use.
- It means “I am” in Spanish. That way, it is particularly adapted to sites or blogs with a community focus or a personal development activity.
- It also means “soybean”. Therefore, it can also be suitable for profesionnals or individuals with an appeal for this vegetable protein.
The .SOY thus creates new spaces on the web for the Hispanic and Latin American community. This initiative is even more important since this community holds the greatest growth in the United States.
Interest in vegetable protein sources such as soybeans has been increasing during the past few years. Therefore, it is interesting to give these topics a share in the website hosting market.
The .SOY allows users to create platforms in accordance with their sector of activity: personal development, community creation, vegetable proteins …
Being less known and requested than other more conventional extensions, it also allows to have a wider choice of domain names.
Other declinations exist today including .ME, English speaking alias of .SOY. Just like this extension, the .ME has several meanings. It is, originally, the geographical extension dedicated to Montenegro.
