Since the times of the Dutch colonial empire when the Dutch established colonies and trading posts all over the globe, the Netherlands has been known for having a prosperous economy that today ranks among the top 20 economies in the world. So, doing business in this country or collaborating with Dutch business partners is a truly smart decision for any company. One of the basic steps to success in this field is establishing a web presence with the Netherlands’s Internet country-code top-level domain name - .NL.
Why register .NL?
Due to the strong positions of the Dutch economy globally, many businesses prefer to build their online presence using the .NL TLD as a reference to the country itself. This brings more prestige to their overall web profile and corporate image. That added to the fact that this extension was the first ccTLD ever introduced has secured a front position for .NL within the first 10 most preferred ccTLDs worldwide.
.NL domain registration requirements
.NL domains are open for registration to any business or private entity with a valid contact address and phone number in the Netherlands. In addition, the .NL registrant’s WHOIS administrative contact must be located in the country too. Any registrant can register as many domain names as necessary. The registry permitted .NL registration period is 1 year.
