Why .cx?

Localize your site with a .cx domain name

The Australian territory of Christmas Island is in the northeast Indian Ocean, and .cx is the official domain ending for Christmas Island. With an aera of 136 km² (52.5 mi²), and a population of barely 2,000 inhabitants, this island is known for its flora and fauna: the majority of the territory is a national park. Choosing a .cx domain name strongly ties your site to this territory.

Use .cx for a website related to customer experience

"cx" is also an abbreviation for "Customer Experience": buying a .cx domain name is an opportunity to create a site exclusively dedicated to communicating with your customers. A .cx domain name could also be a good choice for a cryptocurrency site, with .cx also evoking the idea of a "crypto exchange."

An impactful address with a .cx domain name

Short and unconventional, .cx still offers a wide range of domain name choices. That means you can find an original, impactful, and easy-to-remember URL. Registering a .cx domain name is quick and easy: this domain ending is open to everyone, with no particular formality, conditions, or restrictions for registering. You can register yours in just a few clicks.
