What is the .bayern domain name?

The .bayern domain name is a regional top-level domain for the Bavaria region of Germany. The .bayern domain name was launched along with other regional TLDs in 2013, and can be registered by anyone online.

The launch follows the trend of location-based web addresses by allowing businesses to be more easily identified around location and niche markets.

.Bavaria is not only one of the wealthiest states in Germany, but also its oldest, most diverse, and most populous. This is reflected in the variety of websites that can be found within Germany under the .bayern TLD.

.Bavaria is most commonly used for sites related to Bavarian culture, history, businesses, and industries.

For example one can find an online store at "shop.bayern", a hotel at "hotel.bavaria" or even a sports club at "athletics.bavaria".


Who controls the .bayern domain name?

The .bayern TLD name is managed by the German company NIC.BAYERN. Registrations are open to everyone, not just those within Bavaria or Germany, and can be done quickly and easily online.

Your own .bayern domain name allows you to connect with the people of Bavaria in a way that differentiates your company from others within the same industry.

By using a .bayern web address you make it easier for people to find your Bavarian business online, which can help with everything from marketing to attracting new customers interested in the region.


What are the common second-level .bayern domain name?

Since the first-level .bayern domain names are restricted to official institutions, some companies use the shorter second-level domain names instead.

For example "gool.bavaria", which is registered with NIC.BAYERN, is "the Bavarian digital institute".

A second-level domain is beneficial because it does not need to be as long as a first-level domain, and can easily be shared between multiple sites under the same company.

The following are common second-level .bayern domain names:

athletics.bavaria

bank.bayern

club.bayern

hotel.bavaria

shop.bayern

soccerclub.bavaria
