.NL Domain Registration
The Netherlands is a small country in Europe, but due to the fact that almost 90% of the population are active WWW users, the country is a first choice market for any company that offers goods or services online. This is the reason for the popularity of the local country-code top-level domain name extension .NL. The TLD was the first country-code extension ever created and with more than five million active domains, it is currently amongst the most popular extensions. With such a domain, you can target not only the Netherlands, but also regions with Dutch-speaking people in the neighboring countries, which means an even larger market for your website. As the local Registry doesn’t sell domains directly to end customers, you will have to acquire your .NL name through a 3rd-party company, such as ours. With a dot NL domain, you will contact the local population easier and your website will will have a better ranking in local search engine results.
We can register your new domain name within one hour or you can transfer your existing domain over to our registrar and start managing it together with your web hosting account. The dot NL Registrant and Administrative contact should have valid Dutch contact details, so if you want to register a dot NL domain name for a local firm branch, it will have to be registered on behalf of that branch, not on the mother firm's behalf. The fact that over 60% of the existing .NL domains are reserved by companies and organizations speaks for itself.
