.DE domain name .DE domain name - Germany

The .DE domain extension is the country code for Germany. Get a .DE name and establish your business in one of the world’s busiest markets. The .DE domain extension is a huge success story, it’s one of the highest registered country code domains, and it’s right up there with the generic domains too. This popularity is a clear sign of the strength of the domain market in Germany. It’s a country with a population in 2015 of just over 82 million, 70 million of which are Internet users. That’s a lot of customers for you to target!

Registering a .DE country code domain means that your site will attract local traffic. Users trust a website using a ccTLD, they know that it will be language appropriate, and that the currency will be correct. Also, there won't be shipping costs and delivery will be quicker. Customer care opening hours will be in the same time zone. You'll do well for local traffic and you'll maximise your revenue. It's not just users, search engines look at a website's domain extension and IP address, then match them with the user searching. You'll get a positive impact on your SEO and your .DE website will rank highly in local search results.

When you register a country code domain with EuroDNS, not only do you get improved ranking in local search results, you also get products to protect your domain name and your identity. With every domain name you register, we give you an Alpha SSL certificate to authenticate your business and protect your customers. A personalised email address, and our Classic DNS for a super speedy website. You can also activate two-step verification to protect your account, and domain privacy to conceal your contact details online.
