The Domain that .IS Really Taking Off

The .IS domain name may have started out as the extension for Iceland, but now it’s a hit right across the world too. Why? Because so many words, phrases and brand names can end in ‘is’. It’s a great domain hack for making more customised top level domains (TLDs). For example,,, and to name just a few. When you register .is domain names, you open up a world of opportunity.

Who Chooses the .IS Domain Extension?
