Reserve your .cc domain name

A .cc domain name is an excellent alternative to .com or .net extensions on an international level. In addition to using the abbreviation “cc” as a mnemonic device, this extension allows you to position yourself in terms of competitive keywords.

About the .cc extension

Created in 1997, the national top-level domain .cc is managed by the VeriSign registry. The extension was originally reserved for the Cocos Islands. However, given their low number of inhabitants, the .cc extension was rapidly extended internationally. It is therefore not necessary to have a legal address in the Cocos Islands to buy a .cc domain name.

The regulatory authority for the .cc extension is Enic Cocos (Keeling) Islands Ltd, an organisation located in Melbourne, Australia. It does not apply any restrictions on the registration of .cc domain names.

Any individual or organisation can therefore easily get a .cc extension for their blog or website, wherever they are based.

Why choose a .cc domain name?

When registering, remember to create a domain name that is easy to remember and spell.

A .cc domain name is the ideal solution for taking advantage of a highly competitive keyword. The .net and .com extensions are saturated with new keywords, expressions and brand names.

In the US, the .cc extension is often used to make URLs easier to remember. For example, it is widely attributed to the websites of social networks, Community Colleges or image banks under a Creative Commons licence.

Other countries are following a similar principle: choosing a .cc domain can be easily associated with commercial centres, communities or even cooperatives.
