Our New gTLDs

StartingDot manages three Premium Top Level Domain names (TLDs). Our TLDs focus on architecture, organic produce, biography and snowsports. Markets where a direct correlation between the community and their domain name is of the utmost importance. StartingDot launched in 2011 and has offices in Paris, Dublin and New York.


Established as an exclusive signature for the architecture profession, the associated content, and the growing presence of the business of architecture online. Learn more.


Established as a generic term often used for “organic” in Continental Europe and also used in the rest of the world as a prefix for anything related from biography to biology and biodiversity. Learn more.
