EnCirca Streamlines Registrations for Amazon’s .BOT Extension
Las Vegas (January 27, 2018) – EnCirca announces a streamlined registration process for Amazon’s .BOT top-level-domain. The .BOT extension is part of Amazon’s strategy to become the discovery platform for verified and trusted artificial intelligence applications.
The first step to registering a .BOT domain is to publish a .bot on one of the botkit platforms approved by Amazon, including Pandorabots, Gupshup, Google’s Dialog Flow, Microsoft’s Bot Framework and Amazon’s Lex Framework.
However, many businesses, trademark owners and even domain investors want to first secure their brand names and industry keywords in .BOT before taking the time to publish their bot apps. EnCirca addresses this need by auto-generating Amazon’s required bot presence in mere seconds.
EnCirca’s placeholder bots are generated via a partnership with Pandorabots, the leading platform for bot development.
Amazon is a sponsor at NamesCon this week in Las Vegas where they are promoting .BOT. To try out EnCirca’s new service, please visit www.Domainer.bot.
