Finding a unique domain name is getting more and more difficult. When making a choice, often people find that “all the good ones are taken”. While this might be the case for the “mainstream” extensions, a great alternative is to check the regional extension for the market you are targeting. Check your favorite search engine search engine for a registrar – there’s a good chance your domain will be available. Some countries have this requirement that you have to have a presence there (like .dk for Germany, or .ca for Canada), but a lot don’t (like .tv – which seems to be getting more popular, and isn’t restricted to TV shows as some people think – its the top level domain for the islands of Tuvalu).
Having a domain name with the country-specific extension of the country you are targeting for your business will help with your branding in the local market.
