Yes. The official release date for the .blog domain was November 21st, 2016. Since then, the new TLD has been available to all for registration. With just a few clicks you can be on your way – the proud owner of a blog with your own domain. Simply enter your desired address into the Domain Checker to see whether it is still available in connection with a .blog domain, and register. If your preferred address has already been assigned, you will be offered suitable alternatives for your project. In this way, you can find the right nTLD and strengthen your website with a professional address.

The registration of .blog domains is based on the principle of 'first come, first served', meaning the earlier you act, the more chance you have to secure the most desirable domain names. Compared to the classic TLDs already registered millions of times, the considerably younger .blog domains offer significantly more combinations of attractive domain names for your project.
