.AI Domains Now Available
We are pleased to announce that .AI domains are now available to register at HEXONET. .AI is the country-code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) for Anguilla. It is not a new ccTLD by any means. However, in the past couple of years we have seen an increase in the number of domains names leveraging the .AI extension. Why is this? Well, just follow the money trail. Massive amounts of money are being invested in Artificial Intelligence technologies and startups. .AI can be used as a short and succinct way to represent the very popular buzzword Artificial Intelligence.
Examples of companies we think are using the .AI domain well:
Argo.ai Ford Motors has invested $1 Billion in Argo, a startup focused on developing self-driving car technologies
Element.ai Artificial intelligence incubator and lab based in Montreal
Uber.ai A new division of Uber dedicated to research in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Sentient.ai Developing cutting-edge AI software to improve customer engagement and website conversions
Mycroft.ai Mycroft is a free and open-source intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator for Linux-based operating systems
Ascent.ai Tokyo-based robotics and AI startup.
Google.ai Google, one of the biggest backers of AI and machine learning technologies forwards the domain google.ai to ai.google , their own branded domain
