|Why register .dz?
|If you conduct business in Algeria it's imperative to have a strong, reliable online presence. Algeria is the tenth largest country in the world after all so it's easy to get lost in the 'search'. Registering a .dz country code
extension will increase credibility for your business 'in country'.
Anyone can register a .com domain--and you likely already have the .com. Why not extend your brand presence with a shorter, easier to remember, domain--a ccTLD that differentiates you from competitors. Identify yourself as an official Algerian business owner and give your clients and constituents more confidence as they interact with you online.

academic and research centre, public and private enterprises...) can create a domain under DZ.
