.mx Domain Names

The .MX domain is a ccTLD (country code top level domain), and the Internet country code for Mexico.

  • Register a .MX to demonstrate your personal or business interest in Mexico.

  • Localized domain names demonstrate commitment to local customers.

  • Protect your trademarks by registering ccTLDs.

About .MX domain names

For years .MX was closed and only third level com.MX domains were available. Now .MX domains are available and open to anyone for registration.

The .MX domain name presents a great opportunity for companies and private persons, who have economical, political or cultural relations with Mexico. Local domain names give your company a professional image, which demonstrates proof of your commitment to local customers. By targeting this local market, your company's revenue can be maximized.

Safeguarding your personal identity is crucial today. This should be the same for your online identity, as well as that of your trademark. When it comes to business, protecting your assets is critical; that includes everything from your bankroll to your domains. If you fail to register your name in country code TLDs, it is only a matter of time before someone else does. Attempting to procure a domain after it is registered is much more labor-intensive than being the first to obtain it. Ensure that your competitors do not purchase your trademark, and register it yourself.

The draw of ccTLDs also includes registering short domains. Finding this type of domain in more common extensions such as .COM or .NET is a modern day treasure hunt. The possibility of acquiring a domain with a common or short word is much greater in ccTLDs because they are still growing.
