Hey USA, you have a ccTLD!
The .US domain serves as the country code domain extension (ccTLD) for the United States Of America (USA). It is mostly used by American businesses and entities connected to the USA. Purchase a .US web address if your company or brand is focussed on the domestic market or as an alternative to the generic .COM, .NET or .ORG domain extensions. Domain hacks or short domains for your custom URL shortener are another great use of .US domains, e.g. del.icio.us or dactylo.us.
Individuals should also consider to register their own name in the form FirstnameLastname.us as a personal domain name. Show your pride to be an American and buy your own .US domain today!
Then put your •us to work

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.
