Create a space for your private limited company online

A domain created for businesses, .ltd was first introduced to the market in 2012 and has since firmly established itself as a must-have for businesses everywhere. A contraction of ‘limited’, it refers to companies with limited liability.

Who Chooses the .ltd Domain Extension?

The .ltd domain is right for any website that wants to be taken seriously as a private limited company. If you already have ltd within your company name, it can save you space in your URL by putting ‘ltd’ in the domain extension.

Whether you’re an established business or an up-and-coming startup seeking to make your way in the world, a .ltd domain is a great investment. It’s a three-letter statement of intent and stability that will inspire customer confidence.
