The country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Germany.
Purchase Germany's .DE domain extension, the largest country code top-level domain (ccTLD) worldwide with close to 13 million registered names. By registering a .DE web address, you are protecting your online identity in the most important European economy. Germany is located in Central Europe and surrounded by Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. Alternatively, get the .DE suffix if you are from Delaware in the United States.
You should know that Germans usually prefer .DE domains over any other international web address such as .COM, .NET or .ORG. Search for the name you want and buy your German domain for your business or personal website today.

Your domain registration questions, answered
How does getting a domain work?
There are two pieces to this equation. First, there are domain registries that own the individual top-level domains (like Verisign, which owns .com, .net, and a few other TLDs). Then there's us, the domain registrar, which provides a big online store that houses all the TLDs in one convenient location. When you register a domain, we reserve it for you through the individual registries... like an Amazon of sorts if you were looking for an HDMI cable.
Are there any additional things I need to buy?
Nope, every domain we sell comes with all the bells and whistles attached. If the TLD supports WHOIS privacy, we turn it on automatically. If you want to transfer your domain to another registrar, we don't have any secret add-ons to keep you tied down. And we don't place any weird ads or parking pages on unused domains — we don't see that much anymore, but it was a thing companies have done in the past.
