.cc Domain Names

The .CC domain is a ccTLD (country code top level domain), and the Internet country code for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands.


  • .CC has become popular as a domain associated with church communities, commercial companies, consulting companies, community centers, Chinese companies, conference centers and chat clubs.

  • If your business is looking to gain or has already attained a presence in the Cocos Islands, owning a .CC domain should be part of your plan.

Why should I register a .CC domain name?

If you have a trademark, you need to protect it. Protecting your identity, as well as that of your business online is just as important as protecting you personal identity. By registering ccTLDs you are taking one more step toward preserving your trademark. It is much wiser to be the initial purchaser of a domain, than attempting to acquire it after someone else has.

Another great use for ccTLDs is acquiring shorter names. It is near impossible to register common words in more prevalent domains such as .NET or .COM. It is much more likely to find these types of domains available in a ccTLD.

There are no restrictions for registering a top level .CC domain

Registration for these domains is open to anyone, similar to .COM, .NET, or .ORG.
