.site is a generic top-level domain used in the Domain Name System of the internet. The domain was officially delegated to DotSite Inc (part of Radix) on 12 March 2015.[1] In 2000, years prior to its current ownership, another company Affilias LLC attempted to apply for ownership of the TLD, along with .info and .web.[2]

Usage[edit]

The .site domain reached the milestone of one million domain registrations in February 2019. Radix claims that approximately 70% of these registered domains were by small and medium businesses in fields such as ecommerce and information technology.[3]

The .site domain has had minor issues with being abused for spam and fraudulent uses.[4]
