The Netherlands is a small country in Europe, but taking into consideration that almost 90% of the population are active WWW users, the state is a first choice market for any vendor that offers goods or services online. This is the reason for the popularity of the local top-level domain extension .NL. The TLD was the first country-specific extension ever created and with more than 5,000,000 active registrations, it is at present 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 territories with Dutch-speaking people in the neighboring countries, which means an even larger market for your website. Since the local Registry doesn’t sell domains directly to end clients, you will have to obtain your .NL domain through a third-party firm, such as ours. With a dot NL domain, you will get through to the local population easier and your website will will have a better position in local search engine results.
We can register your new domain name within 1 hour or you can transfer your existing domain over to us and start administrating it along with your hosting plan. The .NL Registrant and Administrative contact have to have valid Dutch details, so if you want to register a .NL name for a local company 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 .NL domains are purchased by businesses and organizations speaks for itself.
