|Why register .cc?
|Cocos Island is situated in the Pacific Ocean approximately 550 km southwest of the Costa Rican mainland. It constitutes the 11th of the 13 districts of Puntarenas Canton of the Province of Puntarenas. Cocos Island offers a diverse and unique marine habitat due to its shallow waters, calm bays, coral reefs, volcanic tunnels, and caves amidst the deep Pacific Ocean currents. These special spots are home to over 30 species of coral, 60 species of crustaceans, and 300 plus species of fish. A diver's (or snorkeler's) paradise.
If you conduct business from within Cocos Island, it is time to register a .cc domain extension. Registering a dot 'CC' country code extension (top level domain name) will increase credibility for your business across the globe. Why? Country-code domains are meant specifically for businesses that do business within a particular country--in this case, Cocos Island. The .com domain (and other generic TLDs) are not targeted and that online space is saturated--and you likely already have the .com for your business.
Extend your brand presence with a more relevant, shorter domain--a ccTLD that differentiates you from competitors. Identify yourself as an official Cocos Islander business owner and give your clients and constituents more confidence as they interact with you online. Country code domains also help you rank higher in local search results. Coincidentally, 'cc' is the acronym often used for 'credit card' so it's a great option for financial institutions and credit card companies.
