Anyone with an interest or connection to Jersey, whether individuals or corporate bodies can register .je domains. It’s particularly popular for websites relating to the island’s government, financial services sector and tourism.

Island Networks also enforces the rules and policies of a .je domain. This includes ensuring that all registrations are legal, true and not misleading.
When looking for your perfect .je domain name there are a few things you should consider before making the final choice; make sure it’s easy to remember, be aware of any potential trademark issues (if using another business’s name), and remember that it’ll be the first thing people use to find your website, so make sure it looks professional.
It’s important to think about who your likely audience is going to be for your website. If you want them all to know where it’s based, then opt for a name with ‘Jersey’ in it.
The most common subdomain structure used by Jersey businesses is ‘yourname.je’. However, some other common subdomains include:
.co.je - This is usually used by companies and organisations.
.com.je - This is often the choice of larger businesses, especially in financial services and tourism sectors.
.org.je - This is often used by non-profit organisations.
.net.je - This is commonly used by IT companies and other professional services providers.
Yes, it’s possible to purchase a domain name without local presence in Jersey through Island Networks Ltd.. However this will require that the applicant has their official address registered elsewhere on one of three international address providers:
The only document needed when registering a .je domain with NJ Registry Ltd. is an official business or company letterhead. This should be signed, stamped and dated by the applicant’s legal representative within Jersey (or another country if using an international address service) and contain the official company stamp.
For individual registrations, the only document needed is a signed and stamped letter from your legal representative within Jersey (or another country if using an international address service). This should include their official stamp.
Registration fees for a standard .je domain start from £30 (taxes included). This includes one year of registration, which can be extended every year thereafter at an additional fee. There are also no hidden charges or extra costs involved with a .je domain. However, there can be extra charges for certain specific services depending on the circumstances.
