The life cycle of .de


Creating your .de domain name

The owner or administrator of the domain name must have an address in Germany. If you do not meet this condition, OVHcloud will be automatically marked as a local contact. When the domain name expires, it will go into transit status with DENIC, the registry for .de domains. DENIC will then contact you to confirm the domain deletion. If the operation is not confirmed, you will be charged.

About .de domains

Like all ccTLDs, .de is a geographical domain extension, which means that it aims to group together websites with content in a common primary language aimed at a local audience (in this case, German). It was created in 1986 and its manager is the German company DENIC. You will need a postal address and contact details in the country listed to reserve this domain.

Advantages of reserving a .de domain name:

As mentioned for all of our ccTLDs, .de is ideal for any localised web projects. Whether you want to create a website, an e-commerce store or a web application, if your audience is located in Germany then a .de domain name will be your best choice. It will make you visible to your Germany-based audience and will boost your relevance in this specific geographical area.
