The Netherlands is a small state in Europe, but since almost 90% of the population are active net users, the country is a preferred market for any provider that offers goods or services on the net. This is the reason for the popularity of the local domain extension dot NL. The TLD was the first country-code extension ever established and with more than five million active domains, it is at present one of the most popular country-code top-level 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. Having in mind that the local Registry doesn’t sell domains directly to end customers, you will have to register your .NL domain through a 3rd-party firm, such as ours. With a .NL domain, you will get in contact with the local population easier and your website will will have a higher standing in local search engine results.
We can register your new domain name in a matter of minutes or you can move your existing domain over to our registrar and start managing it along with your hosting account. The dot NL Registrant and Administrative contact are required to have valid Dutch info, so if you would like to obtain 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 dot NL domains are acquired by companies and organizations speaks for itself.
