.AC is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, a small set of islands in the southern Atlantic Ocean. If you’re not one of the 7.7 thousand residents of these 3 islands, however, then fear not – you can still grab a .AC domain because there are no residency requirements!
Why Would I Want a .AC Domain?
Though this region has over 7 thousand residents, you might be shocked to learn that this is not exactly a large number when compared to the rest of the world’s population – shocking, right? If you’re one of these residents then you’ll definitely want to show your patriotism by using your official ccTLD for your website.
For all of the other 7 billion people out there, .AC is a great option for those looking for a generic TLD to use for their websites. We know how hard it can be to find a .COM that perfectly matches your name, which is why you’ll want to consider using a .AC that’s available. Plus, since it’s not as common, .AC will help your domain name stand out and be more memorable.
If you’re considering .AC then you might also want to check out the following related TLDs before making your decision (or better yet, buy all of ‘em just to be safe):
