Buy a .es domain name
E-commerce in Spain generates more than €40 billion in annual revenue and is continuing to grow. The .es extension is ideal for gaining the trust of internet users in this growing market.
About the .es extension
The .es extension was created in 1988 and is regulated by the Red.es domain name registry. The conditions for registering this extension are simple: You do not need to be a resident of Spain to have a .es domain name. Simply confirm your link to Spain along with a copy of your passport of identity card.
The registry responsible for .es domains also protects your personal data; only your name will be visible in the WHOIS.es reference database.
Why choose a .es domain name
Spanish internet users prefer local sites when they buy online. As proof, in 2018, nearly a third of online purchases made in Spain were made on Spanish-language websites. A .es domain name assured internet users that items can be delivered to their homes at no extra cost.
Buying a .es domain name also allows you to target a Hispanic audience outside Spain. For search engines, the .es extension is also suitable for South American internet users.
Choosing a .es domain name is therefore an asset for your international SEO and in penetrating a growing Spanish market.
