The already mentioned combination of country-specific and generic domain results in a very limited field of use for the de.com domain: Mainly companies with their registered office in Germany or institutions with an economic connection to the Federal Republic use the potential of the de.com domain to offer visitors a German-language, demonstrate commercial direction.
Every Internet user is free to buy and register an Internet address with the top-level domain de.com. Especially if the desired .de or .com domain is already taken, it makes sense for companies to use the .de.com domain as an alternative. Due to the relatively young age of this domain, many attractive web addresses are still available, which you can buy and register directly in real time online at easyname. 3 and 63 characters are available, special characters and pure number domains are of course allowed.
Unfortunately no accurate statistics exist concerning the spread of de.com; it is conceivable that only a few companies use the enormous potential de.com domains offer. In any case, we highly recommends you to buy and register your de.com domains as alternative, if your originally desired domains are already taken.
