Where is the .mt domain?

.mt is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Malta. It's perfect if you're looking to start your own website in Malta or want to represent your business there.

Who can register a .mt domain name?

Anyone can register .mt domain names. You don't have to be a resident of Malta or have any association with the country.

Any individual or business located in Malta can register a .mt domain through Namecheap.

You don't need to be a local citizen to do so, however, you must provide proof of your business by providing a copy of your business registration or an equivalent.

What are the requirements to register a .mt domain?

When registering a .mt domain name, there are certain rules you must follow:

You can't register a .mt domain for the sole purpose of reselling it.

You can't register a .mt domain name containing the words "Internet," "World," or any other related terms.

You can't create a second-level domain.

You can't use a .mt domain to engage in unethical SEO tactics and practices.

You must submit proof of your business by providing copies of relevant registration documents that prove you own or operate an existing website that's associated with your .mt domain.

You are allowed to sub-register domains for free if you are using them yourself.

What are the available domains?

You have a variety of options when registering a .mt domain name, including:

Domain names with 3 or more characters: .com / .org / .net / .us / and many more!

Domains with 4 to 6 alphanumeric characters: .info / .me / .mobi / and more!

Domains that are 7-63 characters long.

Domain name length: 2-63 characters.

Domain name length: Less than 5 characters.

Subject to the Terms of Agreement.

What is a local presence requirement and how can I fulfill it?

To register a name in the worldwide top-level domain you need to have a local representative or a branch office in the country of the TLD. This applies to websites that use any TLDs below:

.com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .us

If you have a local representative or a branch office in the country where the domain is registered within 24 hours of applying for a name you will be fine.

If not, your registration request may be denied and you will have to start from scratch again until you meet the requirement.

Where can I see the .mt domain name?

You can see the .mt domain name in any registrar's interface (such as Hover, Namecheap, and dozens of others). The domain should be available for registration immediately.

What are the benefits of registering a .mt domain?

1) Get an online presence in Malta with a .mt domain. Customers looking for products or services on the island will be more inclined to click through if your site is .mt, rather than using a country-specific top-level domain like .co.uk.

2) Search engines love .mt domains. They know the domain is relevant to the country listed in the TLD, so they're more likely to place your site higher up in search results when people are looking for businesses or services from that region.

3) Use a .mt domain as part of a wider marketing strategy. Registering a .com and a .mt domain is a great way to improve search engine rankings.

If you own both, search engines will assume that your .com site is more authoritative and list it higher up in results.

4) Create local awareness of your business by pointing the .mt domain to your homepage.

This means people who visit your site can easily find out more about your business and where you're based, leading to greater geographical awareness of your brand.
