Why choose a .ph domain name?
The official top-level domain (also known as a domain ending or extension) for the Philippines, .ph is extremely easy to create since it's not necessary to be located in the Philippines or have a business registration number recognized by Filipino authorities. It's also not complicated to find a domain name either: if the domain you want is available, you can easily purchase and renew it for a registration period of up to ten years.
The .ph domain ending gives you access to new markets
The Philippines has more than 105 million inhabitants, which means this country has great potential in terms of visibility, above all with the younger generation, who use the internet much more frequently. If your business has any connection to the Philippines, or even to Asia generally, creating a .ph domain name allows you to establish yourself more permanently in that market, and to grow your business there.
Rejuvenate your identity with a .ph domain name
Choosing a .ph domain name demonstrates your international outlook and more especially your focus on Asian markets. With a .ph domain name, you improve your business's search engine ranking, or in other words, a .ph domain name makes you more easy to find for internet users looking for a particular product or service related to your business in the Philippines.
