Register a .com.br domain
Use the .com.br extension to boost your site's local SEO in Brazil and strengthen its proximity to your Brazilian audience. This domain is a sign of confidence and legitimacy for all brands wishing to establish themselves and gain a market share in Brazil.
About the .com.br extension
.br is the official extension of Brazil. However, only second-level extensions, such as .com.br, are available for registration by legal and natural persons.
The .br extension was created in 1989 by Jon Postel. At the time, he was responsible for the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), the organisation responsible for allocating IP addresses on the Web. The current registry for this extension is Registro, and the .com.br extension is managed by CentralNic.
To register a .br domain, you will need proof that you have a registered address in Brazil (e.g. business address). When you purchase a domain with this extension, you must specify the configured DNSs. Your Brazilian identification number will also be required:
- CPF number for individuals
- CNPJ number for legal entities.
Why choose a .com.br domain name extension?
Registering a .br domain name is good for your brand image in Brazil. The .br extension anchors your website in this country while inspiring trust among the public.
You can also guarantee a better SEO ranking in Brazil with the .com.br extension. Brazilian search engines prioritise local and national results,
so registering a .br domain name is essential for all e-commerce websites and distributors that target the Brazilian market and are physically based there.
