Why do people like cool license plates? Many believe that certain letters and numbers or combinations resembling their names will help them to stand out or to become lucky, successful, and prosperous. Sometimes, it’s simply showing off: after all, a luxury car deserves a license plate that matches its level of swag. Domains are like license plates: the shorter and more memorable they are, the more prestigious they are considered to be.

There is also a neuroscientific explanation why people like memorable names and numbers. Human brain tries to detect patterns and repeated elements in the environment all the time and really enjoys finding them. That is how we learn and make decisions. The shorter and catchier the combination you see, the greater the attention paid to it, and, consequently, the more likely the short-term memory is to transfer this new information into long-term memory. There’s an additional psychological effect: we perceive rare things as having greater value. Statistically short words and numbers with repeated digits are less common than others.

Whether you choose a .ART domain to tell your own creative story or as an investment, below are five reasons why you should hurry up and grab it now!

  1. Memorability, popularity, and prestige

Short names are beautiful, memorable and cool, especially when it to comes to .ART, which is the most popular domain for creatives.

  1. Representation of creativity

Creativity is the new ‘must’ in the world of automatization and robotization. The ability to self-express through creativity is the new way of life.

  1. Universality & SEO optimization

Whether you choose a .ART domain for its purely aesthetic value or because it’s a unique opportunity to own such a concise premium domain, the .ART extension is universally understood in all languages and will give your chosen name a boost in terms of SEO results. According to a study from The Domain Name Association (dated April, 2017), having a relevant domain name extension (like .ART) means that you need fewer inbound links to rank in top page search spots than you would using the more traditional .com ending. Even if you already have a website using .com, you can still obtain a .ART address and simply point that address to your existing site. This gives you more ownership of your name in the online space.
