The Netherlands is a small state in Europe, but since almost 90% of the population are active web 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 country-specific top-level domain dot NL. The TLD was the first country-code extension ever established and with more than 5 million active registrations, it is currently among the most widely used country-specific 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. Having in mind that the local Registry doesn’t sell domains directly to end customers, you will have to buy your .NL domain name through a 3rd-party company, such as ours. With a .NL domain, you will contact the local population easier and your website will will have a better position in local search engine results.
We can register your new name within one hour or you can transfer your existing domain over to us and start administrating it together with your hosting plan. The dot NL Registrant and Administrative contact should have valid Dutch contact info, so if you wish to register a dot NL 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 more than 60% of the existing .NL domains are registered by firms and organizations speaks for itself.
