Reserve your .dev domain name
The .dev extension is a TLD that is ideal for developers who want to launch a website or application. It represents an excellent opportunity for all web architects, and is ideal for any development project. As it is owned by Google, you will be required to have HTTPS enabled to ensure the security of your domain. A .dev domain name is a great option for all your web development projects, without any geographical limitations.

Link your domain name to your website, manage your email addresses, and configure your subdomains directly from the OVHcloud Control Panel.
Secure DNS authentication with your domain name (to be enabled).
Protection against theft
Protect yourself against fraudulent domain name transfer requests.
Redirect your domain name to a webpage of your choice.
The life cycle of .dev
Creating your .dev domain name
The .dev domain extension is a secure space. This means that HTTPS is mandatory in order for a .dev website to work.
You can purchase your .dev domain name straight away, but for it to work properly in browsers, you will need to configure the HTTPS service first. For more information on setting up HTTPS, including resources for obtaining an SSL certificate, you can visit the Let’s Encrypt website: https://letsencrypt.org/getting-started/.
If you would like to order an SSL certificate from OVH, you can view more information about our certificate solutions here.
