The .bzh domain name, the first official top-level domain (TLD) of Brittany, is an opportunity to once again make Brittany visible. The .bzh domain name will provide the public authority with a tool for reappropriating its own language and culture.
The .bzh suffix can be used by anyone living or doing business in Brittany. It enables you to establish your online identity, to make your activities known, to express yourself in terms of territory or culture.
The .bzh suffix will provide you with a range of technical possibilities identical to those offered by other domain names ending in .com, .net, or country codes.
How to register?
The first step is the registration of second-level domain names ending in .bzh (like yourname.bzh). To do this, simply use your e-mail address, as you would register a .com domain name.
A second step is to provide subdomain names for third-level domains (like yoursite.yourprovince.bzh).
Finally, you can use the .bzh suffix in your e-mail addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For businesses, the .bzh suffix can be used in order to get a direct link between a company identifier and an Internet address.
The use of domain names ending with .com, .net, or country codes is strongly encouraged by the authorities. The .bzh suffix will enable users to take advantage of a number of technical possibilities offered by the new domain name structure.
Why choose a .bzh domain name?
A choice of the .bzh suffix means strengthening Brittany’s awareness of cultural identity. The use of a .bzh suffix for your domain name will strengthen your ties with Brittany and promote the economic development of its regions.
The new .bzh top-level domain name will give public authorities, businesses, and Internet users the opportunity to reappropriate their language and culture.
