Actually it's only possible to buy and register a .de domain, if your administrative contact is from Germany. Otherwise every Internet user, administrator and Webmaster worldwide can buy and register a German top-level-domain. If you should not find an administrative contact from Germany, please feel free to contact the customer service of easyname. We offer you a great trust service: easyname registers your desired domains on a so-called trustee, but you will get all the rights and access data. Please check our order process for further information.
Both large German companies and private individuals like blogger use the ccTLD to publish their work. If you also want to buy and register your personal domain, please check to meet the following requirements: Available are between 1 and 63 chars, special characters and pure numeric domains are allowed.
Geographically conditioned, the .de is directly related to the country code top-level-domains of Austria, abbreviated .at, and of Switzerland, top-level-domain .ch. Also the relatively young .eu domain of the European Union, the generic top-level-domain .net, the .org domain and of course the world's most popular .com domain are in relation to the German .de domain.
The .de domain is the world's most popular country code top-level-domain. In comparison with all top-level-domains the .de domain is on top 2 behind the gTLD .com reserved formerly exclusively for companies.
Currently around 15 million .de domains have been registered. In German-speaking countries the top-level-domain enjoys great popularity, however many attractive Internet addresses are already taken - that's why we highly recommend you to buy and register you desired domains as soon as possible.
