You can register dot scot domains (.scot) through us. As a Scottish website hosting and domain registration company it was important that we could offer this domain.
Hang on, What if I’m not Scottish?
Don’t worry, you can still register this domain ending through us. You can also register any domain ending including ones the other countries of the United Kingdom use like .wales or .cymru. Nowadays, you can even register .ninja, if you really wanted to. Fortunately, we’ve not had a request for that yet, but if you want it we can register it for you!
How to Register dot Scot Domains?
There are two ways you can register a dot scot domain. Firstly, you could use a domain registrar and search for .scot domains on their site. Please remember that not all registrars will offer .scot domains. The other option is to get in contact with us and we can register it for you. It’s only £40 per year.
This is a new top-level domain (TLD), so it is pricer than other endings. However, having a .scot at the end of your domain, instead of .co.uk or .com, can help you stand out from your competition. Also, if your target market is mainly Scotland, then it lets users know that your a Scottish individual or company.
Should you Register a .scot Domain?
This is a question that only you can answer as it can be a preference. If your main business is dealing with people or businesses in Scotland, then I would say it was fine. If you trade internationally, then maybe go for .com or even the new .shop! There are some cases where .scot is fine like a Scottish bed and breakfast may want a .scot. As their bed and breakfast is in Scotland it would make sense to have one.
