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, tax.is, par.is, and tenn.is to name just a few. When you register .is domain names, you open up a world of opportunity.

Who Chooses the .IS Domain Extension?

Maybe your business or website operates in a busy marketplace, and all the standard domain options have gone? Maybe you just want to stand out from the crowd? You might simply have a fun brand or blog and want to get creative? You could even be an Iceland-based organisation, or want local recognition in the region? When you buy a .IS domain name, you can – quite literally – create your perfect web address.
