Top Level Spectrum, Inc. manages this domain ending and calls a .contact domain a win-win scenario for businesses. It is one of several technology category TLDs in the ICANN register, and was made available in December 2020. Of course, .contact domain registration is possible with IONOS.

With a .contact domain you’re providing your audience with more context about where they’re ‘going’ on the internet. Under this domain they will find numerous ways to contact your business and stay in touch.
