The Netherlands is a small country in Europe, but given that almost 90% of the population are active Internet users, the country is a preferred market for any company that offers goods or services on the net. This is the reason for the popularity of the local country-specific top-level extension dot NL. The TLD was the first country-specific extension ever established and with more than five million active registrations, it is presently one of the most widespread country-code top-level domains. 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. As the local Registry doesn’t sell domains directly to end customers, you will have to grab your .NL name through a third-party firm, such as ours. With a .NL domain, you will contact the local population easier and your website will rank better in local search engine results.
We can register your new name within the hour or you can transfer your existing domain over to our registrar firm and start administrating it along with your hosting plan. The .NL Registrant and Administrative contact need to have valid Dutch info, 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 dot NL domains are reserved by businesses and organizations speaks for itself.
