Site gives .uno domains away for free, but ensures free domain names will be used.The company behind the .uno top level domain name has launched a new social media aggregator called Uno Social Site.
Uno Social Site aggregates your data from various social networks (such as Facebook and Twitter) in one place. It also allows you to add additional media.
Notably, the free service comes with a free .uno domain name.
Registries have been working hard to get people to register and use their domain names. Use begets use, but getting people to use these new domain names takes time. That’s why I think Uno Social Site, although not completely unique, is a clever idea for a registry.
Think about it: if people use the service, they’ll share it with their friends. After all, it’s social sharing. Friends who visit someone’s Uno Social Site will be exposed to .uno domain names.
By tying the free domain names to a service, it ensures that the domain name will be put to use.
It will be interesting to see if this drives adoption of the .uno domain, which is targeted to Spanish speakers.
