.LLC will be dedicated to businesses registered as US Limited Liability Companies. LLC is the most popular entity type in the US because of its unique tax structure and personal liability protection mechanisms. Having a .LLC domain will provide consumers the assurance that your company is a legitimate US Limited Liability Company.
Limited Liability Companies (LLC) are a relatively new business structure for the United States, the first LLC was validated in the state of Wyoming in 1977 and in 1996 the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws adopted the Uniform Limited Liability Company Act; providing for both the definition of an LLC and the governmental standards under which an LLC may be formed. It was through the Uniform Limited Liability Company Act that a standard set of policies were created to define, validate, and monitor the operations of LLC’s, thus creating a unique and accountable business community of Limited Liability Companies in the United States.
At Dot Registry LLC, we strive to meet the exact needs of our registrants and the consumers that patronize their businesses. This will be accomplished by the creation of a seamless connection and strong communication channel between our organization and the governmental authority charged with monitoring the creation and good standing of Limited Liability Companies registered in the US. Each potential registrant will be cross referenced with their state registration materials ensuring that they are truly a member of the Registered US Business Community of Limited Liability Companies. The reach of DOT Registry’s Corporate Top Level Domains will not only impact online consumerism, but also offer an additional validation process for consumers to research contractors, businesses, and solicitors before choosing to do business with them in person.
Businesses representing themselves as Limited Liability Companies by including LLC., in their business names create an expectation amongst consumers that they have the legal right to conduct business as a Limited Liability Company. Unfortunately, consumers are currently unable to quickly verify the accuracy of this representation. Fraudulent business entities rely on this consumer assumption and the lack of available verification resources to prey on both businesses and consumers. As online commerce replaces brick-and-mortar businesses, there has been a corresponding rise in business identity theft online, which in turn creates a lack of consumer confidence.
The “.LLC” gTLD will be exclusively available to members of the Community of US Registered Limited Liability Companies, as verified through each applicant’s Secretary of State’s Office (or other state official where applicable) or legally applicable jurisdiction. By verifying that an applicant is a registered US Limited Liability Company, Dot Registry LLC will bring unprecedented clarity and security to consumers and business owners, assuring Internet users, registry applicants, and others that web addresses ending in “.LLC” are considered a hallmark of a valid Limited Liability Company recognized and validated by a governmental authority of the United States.
