Why choose a .lc domain extension?
Saint Lucia is a Caribbean island located between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, north of Trinidad and Tobago.
.LC domains are often used to stand for “Limited Company.”
Registering a ccTLD shows your commitment to customers in that location.
About .LC domain names
A great majority of the domains registered under the .LC ccTLD are through entities associated with Saint Lucia. Alternately, the .LC domain name presents a great opportunity for companies and private persons, who have economical, political or cultural relations with Saint Lucia. Local domain names give your company a professional image, which demonstrates proof of your commitment to local customers.
In addition to being used by websites exclusively associated with Saint Lucia, this domain is also used to stand for “Limited Company.” Many companies have begun to use this name to stand for LLC and PLC.
Registering ccTLDs offers another way to protect your online identity, as well as that of your business. We all know how important it is to protect our personal identity. The same should be true when considering the identity of your business or trademark online. Your assets are important whether in the form of a bank account or a domain name, and they need to be protected. When you register your trademark in a ccTLD domain, you are taking one more step to protect what is critical to you and your livelihood. By purchasing your trademark in a ccTLD, you do not have to worry about a competitor acquiring that name. Think how much easier it is to be the original owner instead of attempting to procure the domain from another party.
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. Similarly, domain hacks are much easier to find in ccTLDs. They lend themselves quite well to domains such as ta.LC or preca.LC.

The island, with its natural harbor, was contested between England and France throughout the 17th and early 18th centuries. The possession of this island changed hands 14 times in that span. In 1814, it was finally ceded to the United Kingdom. Self-government was granted in 1967. On February 22, 1979 Saint Lucia was granted its independence.
