.DE Domain (Germany)

2.90 USD / year 1) 2)
Please enter your desired domain name:
.de domains belong to Germany, it is one of the most important extensions of the Internet, as it has the highest number of registrations for a territorial domain in the world, with more than 16 million registered domain names.

.de domains have no residency requirements, i.e. they can be registered by any person or company, regardless of their country of residence. However, at the request of DENIC (the entity that manages the extension) the domain owner must specify an authorized representative resident in Germany within two weeks.

We think it is important to highlight the incredible growth that .de has had in recent years, from only 294 domains in 1994 and 2 million in 2000, to more than 16 million in 2020.
