.GG: the online gaming community’s favourite domain

Blog > Domain Names > Domain Extensions

According to Statista, the number of Europeans playing video games is expected to reach 367.4m users by 2025, an impressive number for an ever-growing industry. If you're a gamer yourself, you will recognize GG as a common initialism, but few people know it’s actually a ccTLD. Can you guess for which territory?

“GG”, short for “good game” is often heard between players at the end of an online competition, making the domain extension .GG an interesting option for all gamers. But did you know that this TLD is originally the country-code extension for the small British island of Guernsey, located off the coast of Normandy? Let’s recap on the many peculiar use cases of this domain extension.

Who should register a .GG domain?

Players

We said it, players of online games or contenders of e-sports competitions all recognize the “GG” expression for “good game”, an expression usually exchanged between players at the end of the game to congratulate each other - or for the winner to boast.

That makes .GG the perfect domain extension for serious online players or teams who want their website to be found by other gamers. Even contenders of real-world sports competitions will associate the .GG with post-game chatter.

Horseracing fans

.GG isn’t meaningful only to gamers, but also to horseracing professionals and fans. In horseracing, a gee-gee is the first horse out of the starting gate. With that in mind, horseriders, horse equipment providers and horseracing fans alike will benefit from the .GG domain.

An all-round great domain

Even if none of the above cases applies to you, .GG is atypical enough of a domain name to help your site stand out, no matter the industry you operate in.

.GG is a catchy domain extension that’s short enough to be easy to remember. It’s also more available than most common domain extensions such as .COM and can help you create a unique identity for your brand on the Internet.

.GG allows you to be creative with your brand name and gives you the opportunity for wordplay and make potential visitors curious about your website.
