.DE Domain Names

The .DE domain is the country code top level domain (ccTLD) for Germany.

  • .DE is one of the fastest-growing and most widely-used ccTLDs.

  • .DE domains make great domain "hacks." Their short extensions lend themselves to domains like marina.DE, abi.DE, or longitu.DE.

  • DE trustee address services included

  • Real time registration (most of the discount providers require 2 to 10 hours to get the entry into WHOIS)

  • Nameserver/DNS services, 301, 302 and masked redirects included (the discount ones usually offer masked redirect only [which is toxic for SEO])
