The Netherlands is a small country in Europe, but given the fact that almost 90% of the population are active Internet users, the state is a first choice market for any provider that offers goods or services online. This is the reason for the popularity of the local domain extension .NL. The TLD was the first country-specific extension ever established and with more than 5,000,000 active registrations, it is currently one of the most widespread country-specific top-level domain name 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. Having in mind the fact that the local Registry organization doesn’t sell domains directly to end clients, you will have to register your .NL domain through a 3rd-party firm, such as ours. With a .NL domain, you will reach the local population easier and your website will will have a better standing in local search results.
We can register your new domain in a matter of minutes or you can transfer your existing domain over to our registrar and start managing it along with your web hosting plan. The dot NL Registrant and Administrative contact have to have valid Dutch contact info, so if you would like to register a .NL domain name for a local firm branch, it will have to be registered on behalf of that branch, not on the mother company’s behalf. The fact that more than 60% of the existing dot NL domains are booked by businesses and organizations speaks for itself.
