Automattic — the parent company of WordPress.com — secured the rights to oversee and operate the sale and registration of .blog domains, a new and never-before available top-level domain. You’ll be able to purchase a .blog domain at WordPress.com or through our partner domain name registrars. And again, the .blog domain will be available to everyone, regardless of what kind of site you have or who hosts it.
I’m actually a bit excited about this. Albeit being happy with my domain I have long wondered why there is no .blog top-level domain. This answers that.
Even though I own already more domains that I need, I guess I might get me one. Once I come up with something clever that is.
