Why .cool?

Get off the beaten track with a .cool domain name

Well suited to a wide variety of different applications, .cool is a generic domain ending that has the advantage of being a little offbeat. With a .cool domain name, your website becomes more than a communication tool: it's a manifesto! Buying a .cool domain helps assert a strong brand identity, no matter your audience.

A .cool domain name for your primary or secondary website

A .cool domain name is a playful, impactful alternative to traditional domain names. If you already have a .com or .net for your brand, why not add a .cool? This domain ending with a positive connotation is ideal for promoting a one-time event, for example a contest. Whether for your primary or secondary site, a .cool domain name makes an impression.

Your .cool website is just a click away

Anyone can register a .cool domain name on a "first come, first served" basis. No particular formality is required. You can register your .cool domain name in a few clicks, for anywhere between 1 and 10 years. Need to transfer your .cool domain name? The process is simple and quick, and extends your renewal date by one year.
