Everything you need to know about .gl
The .gl domain ending is Greenland's geographic domain ending. Greenland is a territory located off of northern Canada that's part of the kingdom of Denmark and has nearly 56,000 inhabitants. Anyone, whether a private individual or an organization or a company, looking to reach the general public in Greenland can create their site with a .gl domain name for a minimum of one year. Not only that, but .gl can be used for "domain hacks," which is when you use the domain ending as part of a word in your domain. For example, in 2009, Google created goo.gl for its URL shortening service.
A .gl domain name adds a touch of originality to your site
Since it's available from anywhere in the world while representing a relatively sparsely populated area, with a .gl you can let your imagination run wild when choosing your domain name, unlike with traditional domain endings like .com, which are starting to reach their saturation point.
Promote your business with a .gl domain name
Simple, reliable, and easy to remember, .gl helps you distinguish yourself online and provides a unique showcase that helps you sustainably promote your business. By choosing a .gl domain name, you can also follow Google's example and make yours a "domain hack."
