We’re excited to have you partnering with .blog to help bring a unique opportunity both to your business and your clients. Over the years, we’ve continued to see the diversity of blogs grow and along with it the potential of the .blog domain.
.Blog combines the unique benefits of both generic TLDs and vertical TLDs.
It is a high-quality domain yielding high renewal rates, usage rates, and attachment to paid services rates. The combination of a high-quality trustworthy extension with wide market access creates large and profitable opportunities for selling .blog domains.
To help you build awareness around this domain option and share .blog with your clients, we’ve created the following Marketing Assets as a one-stop shop for your promotional needs.
Whether you’re just launching a .blog promotional program or looking to revamp your messaging around this TLD, check our Brand Guidance page for a high-level, easy-to-use overview of our colours, messaging, fonts, et al. for guidance.
Here you can download the .blog logo in different sizes and formats, or you can download a complete archive including all versions and colour references by clicking on this link.
Feel free to download and use any of the files linked above to promote .blog on your website. By downloading the logo files linked from this page, you agree to:
- Display the logo standalone, not in a sentence or phrase.
- Use the complete logo, not its elements separately.
- Conserve the logo proportions and integrity.
- Keep the logo flat as it is, without drop shadows, glows, 3D or other effects.
Showing expertise in the industry can help build trust with potential bloggers looking to purchase a domain. Through our blog, we’ve created a vast library of knowledge to help bloggers succeed. We encourage you, as our partners, to use these example blog posts to help connect further with your target market. Although we don’t recommend copying them, feel free to re-purpose them as you wish for your own marketing campaigns.

Showcase / Featured Sites
We like to think that blogs can be for anyone but not everyone. As a TLD that is both generic and specific in meaning, we have dotbloggers in a number of industries and areas but there are generally three types of customers for a .blog domain:
- Personal – Individuals are using .blog domains as a space to share their thoughts, opinions, and interests on a wide range of topics. A blog provides them with an opportunity to connect with others that share interests and stories.
- Business – Businesses are using blogs to draw in potential customers and bring them along the customer journey. Through blogs they’re able to build trust and show their expertise and authority in their industry.
- Brands – Brands are using .blog domains to humanize their brand and further engage with their audience. This is done through strategies like showing the “behind the scenes” stories of employees, sharing blog posts with helpful tips and tricks around their industry, and highlighting the real-life benefits of their products and services.
You can see specific examples of the creative ways .blog domains are currently being used through our featured dotbloggers and showcased blogs. We invite you to look around to see examples of all the different types of dotbloggers.

Social Media and Supporting Graphics
Social media is an excellent way to reach your customers and let them know that you have these new resources available to them.
To help promote these materials, we’ve created graphics that you can use via your social networks, or within the copy on your website. They work as both stand alone content in your .blog promotions, or alongside our blog posts and instructional guides.
Together with one of our industry partners we produced some handy guides to help customers and end users get started with their new .blog domain. Please feel free to use and distribute amongst your customer base.
