Why register international domain names?
As a New Zealander, ask yourself if you feel more comfortable dealing with a business that has a co.nz domain name or a .de domain name? Of course the .nz domain name is more familiar to you - and that's the reason why ccTLD domain names are an exceptional investment for New Zealand businesses wanting to sell products or promote themselves in national markets for the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, Africa, The Americas and elsewhere.
To register or enquire about any of these domain name spaces, simply contact our Online Solutions Consultants on 0800 366 2469.
Which country code domain name is right for me?
Having a localised, country-specific web address demonstrates to your customers not only that you have a genuine, verifiable presence in that market but also that you understand the needs and concerns of local consumers and businesses - as well as many other benefits including:
- access to targeted national markets and customers
- a cost effective way to establish a localised presence
- online ordering through a web address that customers feel comfortable with
- the opportunity to run even the simplest localisation of language and currency
- enhanced rankings and increased traffic from localised search engines such as each local version of Google
And of course if you have brands, products, trade names and trademarks that you want to protect in these markets - your domain names are the most important place to start.
Who can register country code domain names?
The policies for ccTLD domain names vary dramatically between countries. Some spaces are completely open for anyone to register while others have very strict policies around who can register. Your best option is to let us know what markets you operate in and we can give you further information and a no obligation, free quote on securing your names in those markets. And as always if you're simply not sure where to start, we're more than happy to discuss your needs and develop the most cost effective solution for establishing a presence in those markets - simply contact our Online Solutions Consultants.
