Especially if the desired .pt domain is already taken, we recommend Portuguese companies to buy and register a com.pt domain as attractive alternative, because it underlines a commercial orientation in Portugal. It also offers an enormous potential for search engine optimization.
When choosing your domain between 3 and 63 characters are available. Of course you may use numbers and hyphens within your Internet address, also pure numeric domains are allowed. Unfortunately you are not allowed to use special characters within your domain.
Are you looking for more attractive domains? In addition to the com.pt domain our recommendations include the Spanish .es domain or the top-level domain of the European Union with extension .eu - the Italian .it could be also interesting for you.
Currently 500,000 .pt domains have been registered in Portugal; a positive trend is recorded. In the last 6 months alone, nearly 80,000 new domains were registered. Although only a low perentage of the entire domains are registered com.pt domains, it shows the enormous potential the Portuguese top-level domain .pt and its sub-level domains have to offer.
