HostPapa Announces Huge $0.99 Sale on Radix Domain Names

OAKVILLE, ON, June 22, 2016

Canadian-owned and operated web hosting and domain company HostPapa announced today that it will be selling Radix domains at the discounted price of $0.99 each until Sunday, June 27th. The Radix domains include popular new top-level domains such as .website, .online, .space, .site, .press, .tech and .host. The sale coincides with Radix's 2nd anniversary. "We're pleased to be a part of Radix's two-year milestone, and we're excited to be offering our customers such a great selection of domains at such a great price," says Paul Filice, VP, Information Technology & Domains at HostPapa.

Around 300-500 new websites are launched every minute, making the online marketplace for domain names incredibly crowded. But with the emergence of many new top-level domain extensions, prospective website owners have a wider selection than ever when it comes to finding the right URL. And though .com still powers the majority of the internet, niche domain extensions have become increasingly popular, and effective. Blue Tech, a startup using Radix's .tech domain, closed a $6.7 million funding round this past May. And recently, .online became the fastest top-level domain to sell 100,000 units. "We have come a long way from the time of launch and I am happy about the new domain reach and awareness that Radix has been able to generate. As new domains get to the forefront and get more mainstream exposure, I expect the upcoming years to be even more promising," says Sandeep Ramchandani, Radix's Head of Business.
