The .krd domain name is the official domain extension for Kurdistan. It helps promote your site to local audiences while also showing support for the region.
You can use it wherever you'd use other top-level domains, which means that it's a simple step to get involved with this iconic country's accession into the digital world.
What are the benefits of registering a .krd domain name?
Search engines will treat your site as being more relevant to users in Kurdistan when they search, giving you better online visibility because of that enhanced discoverability.
Competitive positions are improved, too, so if there are websites battling for traffic but only one can rank higher than its rivals on page one of results, having a .krd will give it the edge.
Domain name registrations are valid for one year, and you can renew them annually to keep your website's presence in this top-level domain.
The .krd extension is perfect for any business or individual with ties to Kurdistan – or those looking to establish new links with this up-and-coming country.
Why use a .krd web address?
Building and maintaining a web presence has become an important part of doing business and keeping in touch with customers and prospective clients.
Choosing the right combination of Internet addresses can help you to promote your interests and enhance your branding efforts.
When you select a .krd domain name, you're telling the world that your site is associated with Kurdistan and its interests. This can be a valuable way to show your support for this region as it continues to grow and develop.
Whether you're an individual with roots in Kurdistan or just someone who wants to learn more about this fascinating part of the world, registering a .krd web address is a great way to get started.
With this top-level domain, you'll have everything you need to put your best foot forward online – and help promote Kurdistan's unique culture and heritage at the same time.
It's also possible to find many available names which are not yet registered at any top-level-domain registry. The new extension provides businesses with access to such domains for their marketing campaigns or as an additional brand extension.
Furthermore, it allows users from all over the world to easily find information related specifically to Kurdistan Region, Iraq by using existing search engines such as Google, Bing, or Yahoo.
Are there rules for .krd domain names?
The registry may require you to provide documentation that demonstrates your right to use the domain name which you are registering. For more information, please see our Acceptable Use Policy.
For technical reasons, all second-level domains (SLDs) will be initially limited to a maximum of 63 characters (including one dot). This limit is imposed by the Internet DNS standards. The first-level domain (FLD) cannot exceed 64 characters, including two dots ('..').
You may register both an FLD and an SLD at the same time with different registrars. If you wish to consolidate these domains in the future under dotKurdistan's registry, please contact us.
Domain names must be at least 3 characters long and cannot exceed 63 characters, including the extension.
