How to Use .tube
From BASE jumps to ballet, and everything in-between, people like you are creating hundreds of hours of incredible, original video content every minute. With all that video, it’s getting harder than ever to stand out from the crowd. Fortunately, a .tube domain is the perfect way to do just that.
Like any .com address, a .tube page will be your little piece of the Internet to express yourself and share your content. However, unlike a typical .com, .tube is a space you design and control. As you may have seen in tech media, “not coms” are rapidly popularizing in favor over the .com web domain, as they push the boundaries of personal branding by making site names memorable, relevant, and meaningful.
A .tube web address will convey a new meaning to your online video site. “Tube” started as slang for the TV set, but now it’s a household term that denotes visual content. Just like .com became synonymous with Internet, .tube is synonymous for a video channel — killer content mounted on a .tube domain will make your creativity truly stand out from the crowd.
While the creative flexibility that .tube offers is a huge plus for content creators, .tube ultimately helps you secure the end game: amplifying your existing channel, expanding your reach, and making more money.
You’ll have complete control to do whatever you want with your .TUBE domain, with great benefits to help you overcome some of the downsides of sticking exclusively to traditional video channels:
- Integration with your existing channel
- Control of design & functionality
- Improved visibility & ways to get noticed
- Ownership of your community
- Incremental revenue opportunities
- Better control of the ads
- More favorable revenue cuts
- Integration with other channels
Before you know it, you’ll unlock brand new ways to attract attention, make money, and grow your audience using the same videos you’re already sharing on your main channel.
