.NL Domain Names
The Netherlands is a small state in Europe, but having in mind that almost 90% of the population are active web users, the country is a first choice market for any firm that offers goods or services online. This is the reason for the popularity of the local country-specific top-level domain name extension dot NL. The TLD was the first country-specific extension ever launched and with more than 5 million active registrations, it is currently among the most popular country-specific top-level domain name 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. Because of the fact that the local Registry doesn’t sell domains directly to end customers, you will have to purchase your dot NL domain name through a 3rd-party firm, such as ours. With a dot 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 one hour or you can move your existing domain over to our registrar firm and start administrating it along with your hosting account. The dot NL Registrant and Administrative contact need to have valid Dutch contact details, so if you want to acquire 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 companies and organizations speaks for itself.
