Claim your identity with a .rest domain name

The .rest domain ending is primarily dedicated to restaurant owners. "Rest" is short for "restaurant" in 30 different languages: a .rest domain name is easily understood by the majority of internet users who will easily identify your business area thanks to your web address alone. Buying a .rest domain name is ideal for a website that targets a local clientele as well as tourists.

A .rest domain name to cultivate your brand's image

Choosing a .rest domain name helps you establish your brand image. Benefit from a short, sleek web address that you can print with pride on your offline communications with a .rest domain name. Professional and impactful, your domain name will also be easy for your customers to remember.

Easily register and manage your .rest domain name

Anyone can register a .rest domain name on a "first come, first served" basis. If you run a restaurant or chain, it's a good idea to register your .rest domain name sooner rather than later. You can register yours for a period of 1 to 10 years, and if you transfer an existing .rest domain in to Gandi, it's expiration date will be extended by one year.
