Get a .DE Domain Name from Hover

You've been running a small bakery for many years. Long lines snake out the door from open until close and you can't brew kaffee or bake homemade brezel fast enough to keep up with demand. You decided to expand the shop, but that simply hasn't been enough. People from across Germany have heard about your bakery and it's received a bit of international spotlight in blogs, news articles, and even a feature on a local cooking show. You've made the decision to expand your operations not just across Germany, but across all of Europe. Soon, your fresh baked goods will be in stores and your fresh roasted coffee will be carried by other local coffee shops. You will be bringing homemade German pastries to the globe so that everyone can have a taste of your home.

Even though you're ready to expand, your heart and your headquarters remain in Germany. Give your business the .DE domain to let everyone know where your journey began.

It has well over 16 million domain names registered, and is the second most popular Country-Code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD). This domain is unique in that it allows a user to register a one-letter, two-letter, or number-only domain name with the .DE extension.

Restrictions on .DE

The Registrant (Owner) or the Administrative Contact must be based in Germany with a verifiable German address. You can find more information about using or owning the .DE domain on DENIC.

What do I get with my .DE domain?

  • Available Terms 1 year
  • WHOIS Privacy Supported No
  • Transfer Lock Supported No
  • Auth Codes Required for Transfer Yes
  • DNSSEC Supported No
  • Tiered Price Supported No

    This domain extension supports tiered price domain names. Tiered pricing means that the domain registry has marked some some domain names within this extension as costing more or less than others. Tiered pricing domain names will appear with a blue star, and they have different registration prices than normal. Hover offers tiered pricing to give you the most options when it comes to buying domain names. Tier prices are determined by the registry, and not Hover.
