Why .info?

Why get a .info domain name?

Like many domain endings created in the 2000s and which are oriented towards a particular business sector (.immo, .hotel, etc.), .info was implemented in order to reduce the bottleneck on traditional domain endings like .com. This domain ending quickly saw great success positioning itself as the sixth most used domain ending in the world over the course of 2014.

A guaranteed international outlook with a .info domain name

Created as an abbreviation of the term "information," .info is understood around the world. It's frequently used by press websites, radio, and more generally online media. It's also a popular domain name for websites with an international scope because it's easily accessible the world over, including tourist information sites, tourism office websites, websites for certain cities or regions looking to promote themselves online, embassies, etc.
