The .nl extension is the national domain name of the Netherlands. Reservations are not restricted - anyone can order a Dutch domain name. If you own a foreign company, you can showcase your activity with a .nl domain name to target the population of this country.

About the .nl extension

Dedicated to the Netherlands, the .nl geographic domain extension was created in 1986. The Registry managing it is called SIDN. Like most country code top-level domains (ccTLDs), .nl is very popular in its home country. As a result, users generally expect to access content available in Dutch, the official language of the Netherlands that is also used in parts of Belgium.

Why choose a .nl domain name extension?

Widely used across the Netherlands, the .nl national domain extension is the ideal choice for any content targeting the Dutch market. If you would like to create a special connection with your Netherlands-based customers, you can use a .nl domain name for your email address. This strengthens your customers’ sense of belonging while showing how serious your business is. It is also very important to offer your content in Dutch on a website with a .nl extension. According to a study commissioned by SIDN, Dutch internet users are more likely to order items from a .nl website.
