What is .associates ?
Many companies with a collection of partners such as legal firms, accountancy firms, insurance partnerships and financial organisations, use the word associates within their name. A .associate tld gives you the opportunity to use a suffix specific to your name and still keep your domain short and manageable.
Associates can be a group of partners with equal status. Associates imply membership of a group, society or a team - perhaps a part owner - significant and an authority within the organisation. So with a .associate you can communicate your professional standards, credibility and integrity.
