Why Choose an Icelandic .is Domain Name ?

.is domain .IS Domain Registration (.is):

Global domains such as .com are the most commonly seen around the Internet, however here at Nominate we wish to highlight the advantages of international domains and .is domains for both personal and professional use.

Making the Right Choice

With the hundreds of extensions and combinations made available from the advent of international domains Icelandic .is domains reinforces your presence in Iceland, but it doesn't stop there. When you have the perfect name in mind, it isn't easy to change. Usually you'll end up adding pointless hyphens or numbers just to get as close as possible. To stop this, take advantage of the many names still available in Icelandic extensions.

Creating a Global Customer Base

Registering an Icelandic domain can help you create a global customer base. The way in which it does this is by using a ccTLD that the people will trust. If an individual from Iceland sees a domain with .is, they would be more likely to trust the company than if it was .com. It also boosts the ranking of the webpage on Icelandic search engines. An example of this would be with google.fr. It would pick up .fr domains more easily.

.is Icelandic Domain Restrictions: Icelandic domain, None - open to all. Before 2006 you needed a local address or agent, but this restriction is no longer in place.
