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.
