Why .gg ?
What does the .gg extension mean?
Where does the .gg extension come from? This extension is the official domain of the island of Guernsey. Residents, professionals or individuals, it doesn't matter, everyone can choose to buy a .gg domain name. Despite its dependence on the British crown, it has its own extension, administered by the channel isles registry which also manages the .je, tld of the bailiwick of Guernsey.
Why buy a .gg domain name?
Buying a .gg domain name with its sub-domains allows people to get a higher level of online visibility among Guernsey residents, which will in fact give you an edge when promoting your services. Furthermore, for industries such as video games, it is common to see a web page with a .gg domain name since it also refers to a phrase often used by video game players. GG means "good game", an abbreviation used to congratulate a player.

Whether it's for your video game business, or because you're based on the Channel Island, registering your domain name with .gg will make it easier for you to reach your target. A web address with this unique extension is a great way to attract the attention of your audience to your website.
