A .sh domain name for history buffs
The .sh domain ending is the official domain ending for Saint Helena, the British overseas territory situated right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Sparsely populated, this island is primarily known as the place to which Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled for the second (and final) time. Buying a .sh domain name is an excellent choice for a website related to the island of Saint Helena itself or its history.
A .sh domain name for developers
"SH" can signify several things developers will be familiar with: SSH (Secure Shell Protocol), or BSH (Bourne Shell in Unix). A .sh domain name, then, is also a good choice for IT professionals — both employees and freelancers — who want to highlight their knowledge and expertise through their website. A .sh domain name is also appropriate for professionals looking for work who want to put a portfolio or résumé online.
A .sh domain name is available to all
Anyone can register a .sh domain name, professionals or private individuals, without any particular conditions or restrictions. Unlike traditional domain endings like .net or .com, there is still a wide range of .sh domain names available. That means you still have many choices and you can get the URL that you want, without compromise.
