Why .be?

Bring trust with a .BE domaine

People associate a .BE domain name with quality and consider a website with an official national extension to be safe and reliable.

The .BE brings trust in your brand, your product or whatever else you want to promote on your website.

As the national extension of Belgium, the .BE extension strengthens your notoriety.

Choose a domain name. BE

If you want to reach Belgians and access the Belgian market with your company or if you have a department in Belgium, the .BE is the best choice.

In addition, Belgian Internet users who are looking for your organization or your product will spontaneously try to find you by associating your domain name with .BE in their request.

And because a .BE domain name is so natural in Belgium, it is also favored by Google for the ranking of search results in Belgium. A .BE domain name can therefore generate more visits to your site and better positions in the search results.
