.mdAs .com extensions proliferate beyond 30 million, the introduction of subject-specific vertical segments such as .travel, .jobs and .museum have taken on new meaning for individuals seeking to use the power of the Internet for effective search, access, communication and collaboration. Additionally, healthcare providers working online have unique needs that transcend standard online business communications.
 The introduction of .md establishes an online community for the benefit of all healthcare participants and the Internet community as a whole. The .md member network provides all medical constituents with a new standard for medial content, credible information, available treatments and qualified medical providers.

MaxMD is the official provider of .md domain names in the United States and over 90 countries worldwide.

In a recent third-party sponsored study, 86% of physicians surveyed indicate a high-level of interest in .md as the Internet domain dedicated to the medical community.1 Responses to an opinion survey fielded at the 2005 Medical Group Managers Association Annual Meeting offer supporting evidence with 80% indicating that a .md Web address for their medical practice is either important or very important. 2

The company provides personalized web addresses to physicians, group medical practices, medical associations, patient groups, healthcare corporations and medical institutions in the only Internet domain dedicated to the medical community. Additional services include .mdEmail™, a secure HIPAA enabled email solution, and website development.

“An ever-growing number of leading healthcare professionals are taking creative advantage of the .md extension to build or broaden a secure and lasting online presence, enhance the value of provider networks, facilitate peer-to-peer collaboration and advance patient care.”
–Scott Finlay, president and chief executive officer, MaxMD

Why do medical students need a .md Internet address?

The Internet is increasingly being viewed and used as a broad information resource. Future medical professionals use the Internet every day as part of their academic training, medical research and personal use.
