For a while, I tried using a .email domain name for my email address. The new world of TLD’s continues to grow and diversify, and this was a perfect application.
curling, but the server-side verifications were a problem. Until websites drop these antiquated verifications, using a domain name that ends in .email will be a nuisance.
The non-Internet is also not ready. When answering questions in real life like “and what’s your email?”, I’d find skeptics think it wasn’t a real address. I also came across people mishearing “dot gmail” instead of “dot email”. With roughly half the people I told, there would be some issue.
I have since switched back to a traditional, boring .com domain name. Basic, but hassle free.
