The Netherlands is a small state in Europe, but given the fact that almost 90% of the population are active net users, the state is a preferred market for any vendor that offers goods or services on the net. This is the reason for the popularity of the local ccTLD dot NL. The TLD was the first country-code extension ever created and with more than 5 million active registrations, it is currently one of the most popular country-code top-level domain 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. As the local Registry doesn’t sell domains directly to end clients, you will have to grab your .NL name through a 3rd-party firm, such as ours. With a .NL domain, you will get in touch with the local population easier and your website will have a better rank in local search results.
We can register your new domain within minutes or you can transfer your existing domain over to our company and start handling it along with your web hosting space. The .NL Registrant and Administrative contact should have valid Dutch contact information, so if you would like to buy a dot NL domain name 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 over 60% of the existing .NL domains are purchased by businesses and organizations speaks for itself.
