Cloud computing has really taken off in recent years and there are many businesses proudly boasting their cloud credentials. Now they can put it in their domain name.
Saying that your company is "in the cloud" is a sure-fire way to let others know that it’s a progressive organisation (or something). Why not include it in your web address so every time somebody visits your website so they will know just how committed you are to the cloud?
Okay, in all seriousness, the .cloud top level domain (TLD) is available and provides a good alternative for .com.au, .net and even .io, which has gain popularity in recent years. The .cloud top TLD was auctioned off in 2014 and was won by an Italian company called Aruba IT. It's a TLD that was in high demand at the time it was announced.
It is now being offered by a number of different domain name registars, including GoDaddy. I can get Spandas.cloud for around $30. Hmmm… tempting.
