Three Things I Like About Germany’s .DE

As you know I am a big believer in ccTLD’s and the opportunities that exist in the Global Domaining markets. While my portfolio spans over twenty different TLD’s I have a nice concentration of .us and .in/ domains. I haven’t been too involved with .DE until I learned more about it during the ccTLD panel at TRAFFIC Las Vegas. It was there that I fell in love with .DE and while I’m still a beginning in the market I think the prospects are great!

So what do I like so much about .DE? There are three qualities that really make .DE stand-out:

  1. One-Month Registrations – that’s right, you can register a .DE domain for just a month – it really is like doing domain tasting!
  2. Dashes are In – imagine a world where dashes and spaces are created equally – with .DE you can register those hyphenated domains all you want!
  3. Second Largest Domain Market – .DE is the second largest domain market next to .com

We will have a much more detailed article about the .DE ccTLD on my new online magazine –!
