.US is proud to celebrate America’s birthday and American small businesses across the country. After the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, the ‘American Dream’ became a reality and citizens were given the freedom to own businesses and reap the rewards of their hard work.
From farms and butcheries to apothecary, millinery shops and ‘general’ stores, America was built on the power of small business. This power has propelled the
growth of the nation: In July 1776, there were 2.5 million* people living in the newly founded country and now America is home to more than 314 million*.
With the evolution of the internet, business owners today have an opportunity to extend their reach both domestically and internationally. While preserving their local pride and American roots, small businesses are successfully leveraging their .US domain names and websites to boost awareness and profits on local, national and even global level.
.US believes in America and American Business. On this day and every day, we proclaim that small businesses, and the people behind them, are the force that will continue to propel our economy into the future.
We invite you to join this community of like-minded individuals and organizations and become part of a growing movement at .US. It's the continued hard work and ingenuity that keep America strong. Together, we can Kickstart America.
Happy 4th of July from .US!
