.ART domain presents “Digital Twin”
Just like artwork, domain names are assets, critically important to the very DNA of your online brand identity. But imagine your domain name was even more than a place for people to find and interact with your artwork. With .ART domain it can be. The creatives behind .ART are bridging the online and offline worlds with a new feature called Digital Twin.
What is .ART domain Digital Twin?
Digital Twin is a tool that enables the digitization, protection, monitoring, and monetization of art objects online using the Domain Name System (DNS). The WHOIS database catalogs critical DNS information pertaining to domain names, including important dates, the registrar, domain status, and even in some cases, the domain owner’s name and contact information. This helps with the policing of the internet and gives users visibility to know who is behind the domain name. For domain investors it is a handy resource that connects them with potential clients.
For those in the art community, .ART Domain Digital Twin does something similar. Just as easily as you can discover ownership of domain names in the WHOIS, each artwork is officially registered and contains all the pertinent information about its owner with special description fields.

Fiennes compares the experience to that of encountering a painting or still work of art –
“there is no fixed narrative or prescribed length and the viewer chooses how long they wish to spend with the work. If the work is encountered again, there is every chance they will see sequences they did not experience previously.”
The benefits of getting your .ART Domain Digital Twin
Create a Time Capsule
In times like these we feel the crucial need to create a global foundation of digitally preserved artwork. Afterall, art is the most precious and telling thing we have as humanity. Not to mention, when you seek information about art objects on the Internet it is scattered, decentralized, and difficult to find. Museums, artists, private collectors, cultural heritage sites, and every artistic entity in between, should set the prescient of digitalizing and preserving the artwork of our world with a .ART Domain Digital Twin.
Don’t Ask Kris Jenner, who was tricked by Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick into thinking a paid actor was a famous artist named Art Vandelay.
Authenticate Your Artwork Online
Digital Twin is the only way to immortalize forms of art that are temporary in their nature, such as street performances, improv shows, pop-up exhibitions, a female comedian crashing the Chanel show… Okay maybe we won’t count that one just yet. But every artwork needs its Digital Twin no matter how obscure it is.
Own Your Creative Work
We have previously discussed why social media can’t replace domain names. Having a domain and your own website allows you to fully own your personal digital property. The .ART Domain Digital Twin allows you to store, scan, print, and stream a digital copy of your art object, and keep your data safely behind a trusted web address.
