.NL Domain Names
The Netherlands is a small state in Europe, but having in mind the fact that almost 90% of the population are active WWW users, the state is a preferred market for any firm that offers goods or services on the net. This is the reason for the popularity of the local domain name extension dot NL. The TLD was the first country-specific extension ever created and with more than 5 million active registrations, it is currently among the most popular country-specific top-level extensions. With such a domain, you can target not only the Netherlands, but also areas 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 doesn’t sell domains directly to end clients, you will have to secure your dot NL name through a third-party firm, such as ours. With a dot NL domain, you will reach the local population easier and your website will rank better in local search results.
We can register your new domain name within 1 hour or you can transfer your existing domain over to our registrar firm and start managing it together with your hosting account. The dot NL Registrant and Administrative contact are required to have valid Dutch contact information, so if you would like to acquire a dot NL domain for a local company branch, it will have to be registered on behalf of that branch, not on the mother firm's behalf. The fact that more than 60% of the existing .NL domains are registered by firms and organizations speaks for itself.
