What are the advantages of registering a .es domain name?
Created in the early days of the internet in 1988, .es is Spain's geographic domain ending: it uses the first two letters of the country's name in Spanish (España). However, .es domain names are available to people well beyond the borders of Spain and registering one doesn't require fulfilling any particular condition, except, of course, that the domain name should still be available. Businesses, organizations, and individuals can still purchase one without having a direct connection to Spain.
An opening to the Spanish-speaking world with a .es domain name
The .es domain ending is very effective if you have some kind of link to Spain or Latin America, where Spanish is spoken in nearly all countries. By registering a .es domain name, you open the door to a market of more than 47 million individuals in Spain, most of whom have internet access, and an even larger market in Latin America, where nearly 430 million people speak Spanish.
Cultivate your business identity with a .es domain name
For most European internet users as well as Latin Americans, the .es domain ending has a trustworthy reputation in terms of digital security and no one will hesitate to visit your website. A .es domain name can also help you promote your business in Spanish-language search engine results.
