.KI Domain Names
What is a .KI domain?
The .KI domain is a ccTLD (country code top level domain), and the Internet country code for Kiribati. Located in Oceania, Kiribati is a group of 33 coral atolls in the Pacific Ocean straddling the Equator. The capital, Tarawa, is about half way between Hawaii and Australia. Kiribati is comprised of three island groups - the Gilbert Islands, Line Islands, and Phoenix Islands. All these islands combined span 314 square miles, an area 4 times the size of Washington D.C. The population of Kiribati is 110,356, according to the July 2008 census. The official language is English, although I-Kiribati is also spoken.
Why should I register a .KI domain name?
A great majority of the domains registered under the .KI ccTLD are through entities associated with Kiribati. The .KI domain name presents a great opportunity for local and international companies wanting to represent their business in Kiribati. Local domain names give your company a professional image, which demonstrates proof of your commitment to local customers. By targeting this local market, you can maximize your company's revenues.
Protecting yourself and your identity is all too important in today's world. The same standards apply to protecting your business and personal identity online. Protecting your brand is an important reason to register ccTLDs. Being the initial purchaser of your brand in a TLD is a much wiser idea than attempting to acquire names after someone else has registered them.
Additionally, it is much easier to purchase a common word or short domain name in a ccTLD than in the more popular and heavily populated TLDs like .COM. Country code TLDs also present the opportunity to register domain hacks such as rei.KI, ti.KI, or brews.KI.
Are there any restrictions for registering a .KI?
The acceptable use policy for .KI domains states that this domain should not be used to publish any material deemed unsuitable for children. The Republic of Kiribati restricts content relating to violence, pornography, tobacco, hate speech, illegal drugs and alcohol.
