The takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk and the massive layoffs that followed is good news for the .social domain.

In a week’s time, more than 1000 .social domain names were registered. Out of dissatisfaction with the developments at Twitter, there are many quick switches to Mastodon. This can best be described as a new form of social media and a .social domain name is of course ideal for this new protocol.

Mastodon is not a company or platform, you can compare the principle of Mastodon with e-mail. Anyone can host Mastodon themselves and communicate seamlessly with all other Mastodon servers. bNamed can already be found on Mastodon.

Registering a .social domain name can be done quickly and easily in just a few minutes.
