Reserve a .scot domain name

Highlight your affinity with Scotland with a .scot domain name. The .scot extension is open to everyone, both individuals and businesses. Reserving a .scot domain name shows that your content intends to promote Scottish territory and culture.

About the .scot extension

The .scot extension was created in 2014. It is managed by dotScot Registry, a non-profit organisation. .scot is not the official extension of Scotland like .uk is, but it is a geographic top-level domain (GeoTLD). Today, however, lots of Scottish users have a .scot domain name for their websites. Recognised in Scotland, .scot helps promote Scotland's culture, language and all its unique charms.

Why choose a .scot extension?

As a geographical domain name extension, .scot is deeply connected to the Scottish community. If you want to set up a business in Scotland, a .scot domain name is the best way to grow. Whether you’re selling local specialities or promoting cultural landmarks, the .scot extension demonstrates your localness to internet users. This is a guarantee of reliability and, therefore, an excellent way to build up trust with Scottish visitors. The distinctiveness of this extension offers a wider choice of domain names than with a generic extension like .com.
