The Netherlands is a small state in Europe, but having in mind the fact that almost 90% of the population are active WWW users, the country is a desired market for any vendor that offers goods or services on the web. This is the reason for the popularity of the local domain extension dot NL. The TLD was the first country-code extension ever created and with more than 5,000,000 active domains, it is at present one of the most widespread country-code top-level domain name 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. In view of the fact that the local Registry doesn’t sell domains directly to end customers, you will have to grab your dot NL name 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 will have a better ranking in local search engine results.
We can register your new domain name within an hour or you can transfer your existing domain over to our registrar company and start handling it together with your web hosting plan. The dot NL Registrant and Administrative contact need to have valid Dutch contact info, so if you want to book 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 company’s behalf. The fact that over 60% of the existing .NL domains are purchased by companies and organizations speaks for itself.
