RGD + .design

Through a partnership with Porkbun, RGD is able to offer its members discounts on .design domain names. You'll receive your first year of domain registration and email hosting for free. .design offers an innovative, brandable and meaningful competitive advantage. Unlike other top level domains .design explicitly identifies designers. Your web and email addresses can be as unique and creative as your designs.

“This free domain is a fantastic RGD member benefit. It helps me get my name recognized as a designer and differentiates my website from others because of the .design instead of the .com url. I am able to portray my true professional side, and it makes me feel like I am part of an exclusive graphic designer club!”

-ERICK MCMANUS, ERICKMCMANUS.DESIGN

“I think that one of the benefits of having the .design domain is that it helps to add another layer of legitimacy to our profession as it provides an online identity for designers that’s personable and easy to recognize.”

-JOSH SKINNER, JOSHSKINNER.DESIGN

“As a designer, I jumped at the opportunity to have a .design domain name. The .design domain allows people to make that important and immediate connection between your name (or business name) and what you do: design! For me, timing-wise, it couldn’t have been more serendipitous; I was in the midst of re-branding my freelance business to my name and I had just completed a web development course at HackerYou. I was able to register the .design domain name, build my site and then launch robfujimoto.design!”

-ROB FUJIMOTO, ROBFUJIMOTO.DESIGN

“Creating a website using the free domain provided by RGD has been a great opportunity for a junior design like myself because it allows me to include my portfolio, contact information and a background about myself all in one convenient place. This website opens up a lot of opportunities for me by allowing me to send out my website URL to potential clients and/or employers instead of creating a physical portfolio. I can now share my work with more people and help get my name out in the design world.”

-TAYLOR SARGENT, TAYLORSARGENT.DESIGN

“It is greatly important to have a personal site to display all of your countless hours of hard work, and to be able to keep it up to date. This RGD member benefit is a great stepping stone for Provisional and Student RGD members to be encouraged to start and keep a personal site live and up to date throughout their career.”

-MICHELLE WILLSON, WILLSON.DESIGN

Great people, great support Porkbun has some really nice, really real people behind the scenes who have been able to provide fast and helpful support whenever I've needed it.

Awesome, Porkbun gave me a 1-year free .design domain name! The checkout process was super simple and my cart wasn't loaded to upsell me like other domain registration sites. I will be registering my domain names through Porkbun from now on.
