Buying-a-Domain-Name-in-Germany.jpgForeign investors who want to establish a company in Germany are advised to open a website, which can represent their business activity in the online environment. One of the most important aspects of owning a website refers to the fact that the company can further capitalize its image and operations to a larger consumer market or possible business partners. 
In order to open a website in Germany, it is required to buy a domain name, chosen in accordance with the activities carried out by the company. Entrepreneurs interested to receive more information on this subject can address to our team of German company formation specialists

Domain names in Germany 

Persons who want to open a website in Germany should know that the country code top level domain name is .de, which designates the fact that the respective website was incorporated in accordance with the rules and regulations prescribed by the German authorities
It is important to know that German domain names can have a maximum of 63 characters, which can be represented by letters (from A to Z) and numbers (from 0 to 9). German websites can contain hyphens, while special characters are not allowed; our company formation agents can offer an in-depth presentation in this sense. 
When buying a domain name, investor can opt for one of the following top-level domain names
.com – available for legal entities
.edu – available for educational institutions;
.net – usually is designated for network providers;
.org – available for non-governmental organisations or for entities which do not fit in the above mentioned top-level domain names;
.int – available for international organisations. 

Register a domain name in Germany 

In order to register a German domain name, the applicant must have an address in Germany. The registration process is carried out by the Deutsche Network Information Center (DENIC), which is the main provider of websites available in Germany. DENIC is the main administrator of German domains, which, at the moment, administers more than 16 million domains

    I am interested in opening a website for a newly formed company. As I've understood, I need a German address. In this sense, everything is alright, as the company is incorporated in Berlin.
