Useful information about .tv domains

Trends & General Information

The .tv domain is the country-specific top-level domain of the island state of Tuvalu in the Pacific Ocean. The domain ending was assigned to Tuvalu in 1996 by the IANA, since then interested administrators from all over the world can easily buy and register their personal .tv domain online. Originally, the purpose of the country-specific ccTLD was to provide local businesses with some form of presentation on the Internet - meanwhile, this image has changed, as the island state of Tuvalu earned relatively well by selling the TLD rights. Incidentally, this sale was dedicated to a separate stamp.

The .tv domain is managed by dot.tv, a company subordinate to VeriSign. VeriSign is responsible for, among other things, the administration of .com and .net domains .

Benefits

Due to the association of the domain ending .tv with the English term "Television", the .tv domain enjoys great popularity with television stations - accordingly, such representatives often buy and register their own .tv domain. But private individuals, companies and service providers from all over the world are also benefiting from the liberal public procurement guidelines for .tv domains.

A special advantage of the ccTLD .tv is the convenient registration: With easyname the order process is completed within a few seconds. After a final review of your data, we usually register your desired .tv domain within a single day. You do not need to submit additional documents, only your personal information is sufficient to buy a .tv domain at easyname. For your desired domain name you should pay attention to a few things: You have between 3 and 63 characters available - special characters are allowed within the Internet address, as well as numbers and pure numerical domains.

Since the .tv domain is actually a country-specific ccTLD, it may come as a surprise that many related domain endings belong to the gTLDs, ie the generic top-level domains: Among them are the .com domain , the gTLD .pro and the .info domain . However, the misappropriation by TV channels explains this phenomenon.

Statistics

Due to the popularity of the .tv domains, many Internet addresses have already been taken - especially popular domains such as china.tv were awarded for annual costs of up to $ 100,000. But of course private individuals, companies and internet service providers can also buy and register a .tv domain at cheaper prices. There are a few Internet addresses that have actually been registered for a user in Tuvalu, but due to Tuvalu's relatively small population of about 10,000 inhabitants, it can be assumed that the majority of the .tv domains are managed abroad.

The chance to find a suitable domain is still relatively large - but it pays to act as swiftly as possible and to buy and register the desired Internet address.
