Donuts and the United Federation of Travel Agents’ Associations (UFTAA) have announced a new partnership to include the long underperforming .travel gTLD as an additional benefit for its members and the industry.
UFTAA members can now secure and use .travel domain names for a significant, “members-only” multi-year discount. One of the roles of the UFTAA is to work globally to enhance the interests and image of their members.
Donuts is the largest operator of new gTLDs with 238 and 4.478 million domains under management according to nTLDstats. In 2019 they added the .travel generic top-level domain to its stable, and they’re undoubtedly hoping to add to its current 20,145 DUM, according to DomainNameStats.
“We are delighted to partner with UFTAA, a leading global travel agent association’s Federation. UFTAA goes beyond to support industry stake holders as well. UFTAA responded excitedly about the benefits that .Travel domain names bring to UFTAA members to truly stand out ‘online’ in this massive and growing industry,” said Trang Nguyen, Vice President Business Development for Donuts Inc. “It is more important than ever for travel agencies to have a strong, persuasive online presence. Using a .Travel domain name clearly distinguishes travel businesses when customers are using Google and other search engines for their travel solutions.”
“In the fast growing and rapidly evolving environment of travel & tourism industry and its approaches, globally, many organisations have undertaken an aggressive run up to gain greater visibility. .Travel will certainly be an advantage to support an identity of specialisation and focus,” said Sunil Kumar, President of UFTAA. “UFTAA is pleased to associate with .Travel in our most ambitious objective to lead the global tourism connect and support members with a very special status. And this comes via UFTAA to our members as a very special offer,” he added.
