.es domains

Introduction

‘.es’ is the top-level internet domain corresponding to Spain.

It is a secure domain of quality which is easy to acquire and renew on competitive economic terms. It offers value-added services such as amicable conflict resolution.

The internet is the biggest window on the world that has ever existed: a gigantic open web of information and relations. To make ourselves known, it is essential to find an authentic way of defining ourselves and standing out from the rest.

To be ‘.es’ indicates that we belong to a vibrant community with a personality of our own. This community grows from day to day, and consists of nearly two million domains.

This ‘.es’ offers the best guarantee that your customers will find and approach you. It protects your brand.

From the point of view of the Register, we want the ‘.es’ domain to refer to the Spanish language at international level. We want it to be used for web pages with Spanish content, in a world which has more than 400 million Spanish speakers. Identified with our culture and language, this is Spanish people’s domain of choice.
