Businesses in Brazil or with ties to Brazil have more choices at Gandi now that we’ve introduced six new Brazilian SLDs (second-level domains):
What’s a second-level domain?
A second-level domain or SLD, is a domain ending that has two terms in it, separated by a dot. Some country-code TLDs, like .br, are only available as second-level domains. The most famous is probably .co.uk, though many other countries’ ccTLDs offer SLDs.
Why you might want one of these domains
If you do business in Brazil, having a .br domain name can signify your connection to the country. As opposed to more generic options like .com.br, you can now say a little bit more about your business in your domain ending. For example, if you have a tech startup, you might consider .tec.br, or if you have a business as a freelance developer, you might register a .dev.br. Similarly, .inf.br, .tv.br, and .org.br are attractive options for organizations or businesses in each of these respective industries.
If you already have a .br domain name or a .br SLD domain name, you might consider getting your domain name in one or more of these SLDs as well to protect against cybersquatting or just avoid confusion.
These domains are available to register for $155.00* per year at A rates.
As with all .br domain names, these domains are open to individuals and companies with legal headquarters in Brazil or that are otherwise established in Brazil. If needed, Gandi can provide you with a trustee service if you don’t have a local presence in Brazil.
Additionally, these domains are reserved for Gandi Corporate Services. If you’re interested in registering these domains contact your account representative or contact Gandi Corporate Services today.
