.PRESS Domains by Radix Announces Partnership With Clippings.me to Offer .press Domains and Online Portfolio Bundle to Journalists

Journalists, Bloggers and Writers Using Clippings.me Portfolio Services Can Now Obtain Memorable .press Domain Names for Their Portfolios

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2015) - Radix, a leading new gTLD registry, today announced its partnership with Clippings.me, one of the largest journalism portfolio hosting services.

With the growth of digital journalism, web portfolios have become the primary tool for journalists to exhibit their work and gain an engaged follower base. Through this partnership, users of Clippings.me will be able to use .press domains for their portfolios at special prices. In turn, registrants of .press domains will also be able to build their portfolios with Clippings.me at exclusive pricing.

"For today's professional writers, having a clear and credible online portfolio is key to career advancement and landing more work. This partnership takes our online writing portfolios to the next level by providing a memorable address for our users," said Nicholas Holmes, Founder at Clippings.me.

"As the Internet becomes more crowded, obtaining a URL that is available and easily discoverable is a challenge. With the introduction of new gTLDs like .press, journalists now have greater opportunity to create unique online portfolios with domains that accurately represent themselves and their work," said Parag Barhate, Category Head for .PRESS Domains at Radix.

Radix's .press domains differentiate the Internet namespace for journalists, bloggers, PR portals, news corporations and the journalism community in general. In addition to partnering with Clippings.me, Radix has shown support for the journalism community through other initiatives tied to .press domains. Just recently in May 2015, Radix donated a portion of sales from the .press domains to the International Center for Journalists' (ICFJ) Press Freedom Initiative -- the company registered 1500+ .press domains.

About .PRESS Domains:
