The state of Alabama, known as “Sweet Home Alabama” to its residents, is among the most beautiful areas in the southern United States. With over 4.6 million inhabitants, Alabama is a leader in aerospace, education, healthcare and tourism.

The Alabama Bureau of Tourism and Travel (ABTT) decided in 2007 to adopt the .Travel domain because the opportunity to get in early with a highly respected top-level domain was too good to pass up.

According to the ABTT’s web design firm Luckie & Company, “We honestly had some reservations at first about how consumers might react to a .Travel domain. But early testing on keyword search ads and other studies showed that people respond extremely well to a .Travel address.”


Alabama uses the URL on all of its marketing and promotional materials:  email, TV commercials, web banners, trade shows, and brochures. website traffic continues to increase. On many keyword searches, ranks near the top of search results.
