Fédération Internationale de Basketball (FIBA), commonly known as the International Basketball Federation in English, has announced a partnership with GoDaddy. The teaming up has been to promote the extension .basketball.
FIBA along with Roar.basketball LLC has joined hands with GoDaddy. FIBA aims to make the .basketball domain accessible to everyone. Hence,the world’s most popular registry was clearly the ideal partner.
Interestingly, FIBA not only manages world basketball but also the .basketball extension. FIBA earlier operated on a .com domain name with the name FIBA.com. However, the Federation switched to a more specific domain name of FIBA.basketball.
Not only FIBA, but more and more basketball organizations, ranging from National teams to local teams are embracing the .basketball TLD. As for example Argentina shifted from cabb.com.ar to Argentina.basketball. Similarly Australia also changed from boomers.com.au to Australia.basketball. Even Egypt switched from ebbfed.com to Egypt.basketball.
