What are .new domains?

Introduced by Google in 2018, and opened up to additional companies in 2019, .new domains are designed to be shortcuts to common new actions on the web.

The idea is that loading the domain name should take you straight to the new service.

For example if you want to launch a new spreadsheet, you would go straight to the new sheet – instead of having to go to a dashboard and then click ‘new spreadsheet’ or similar.

“Posting, linking, designing, recording — it’s all possible with action-based .new links. Replace menus and long URLs with easy-to-remember shortcuts.”

You can find out more about dot new domains on the Whats.new website.

Can I get a .new domain for my website/business?

You can apply for a .new domain on Get.new if you think you have a suitable web action.

Google may reject your application if they think it is unsuitable.

Google .new domains are unlikely to be suitable for a large number of different types of websites.

For example if you have an e-commerce website, blog, portfolio site, or similar – a .new domain would almost certainly not be appropriate.

Security, HTTPS & HSTS

Google like to focus on security with their domains, and like other Google domain extensions (such as .dev), .new domains have HSTS built-in and turned on by default.

This means that users visiting a .new domain will always be automatically forwarded (using a 307 redirect) to the secure version of the website if they attempt to visit a non-secure URL.

For example when a user visits http://docs.new it will yield a 307 redirect to https://docs.new, then a 302 redirect to the new document.
