The advantages of .at
Originally, .at is the country-specific domain ending for Austria. As a result, .at has a European dimension to it and can be especially useful for any businesses and individuals looking for particular visibility with German-speaking internet users. It's not actually required to live in Austria or have your business based there in order to register a .at domain name.
A .at domain name is especially well-suited to European businesses
Like other geographic domain endings from countries in the European Union, .at is popular with businesses trying to expand in the European market online, particularly amongst the German-speaking public. This domain ending can also be used as a "domain hack," that is, by using it to form a complete phrase in a domain name. For example: look.at or point.at.
Promote your business with a .at domain name
Besides its use as Austria's official domain ending, .at is a useful tool for creating an online showcase, and at an international scale. Easy to remember in several languages, internet users will know how to find your .at website with no problem, and you'll enjoy good search engine rankings.
