The Netherlands is a small state in Europe, but taking into consideration 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 on the net. This is the reason for the popularity of the local country-specific domain .NL. The TLD was the first country-code extension ever launched and with more than 5 million active registrations, it is at present amongst the most widely used country-code TLDs. 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. As the local Registry doesn’t sell domains directly to end clients, you will have to obtain your dot NL domain through a 3rd-party company, such as ours. With a .NL domain, you will get in contact with the local population easier and your website will have a higher rank in local search engine results.
We can register your new name within 1 hour or you can transfer your existing domain over to our registrar firm and start managing it together with your web hosting account. The dot NL Registrant and Administrative contact need to have valid Dutch contact details, so if you want to book a .NL domain 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 over 60% of the existing .NL domains are registered by firms and organizations speaks for itself.
