Get the .NL Domain Name from Hover

The Netherlands is covered in cheese shops and Amsterdam is the hub of that activity. You've been operating a small cheese shop packed to the ceilings with cheese varieties - and every single one of them is available for sampling. Customers flock from local and afar to snag a piece, or a brick, of the cheese your family creates and sources. And yes, you are the one who is known to craft a tulip-shaped or clog-shaped brick so the tourists have delicious gifts to bring back to their families. Your cheese has been taken across the globe and enjoyed by people who have never had the chance to visit the Netherlands and that knowledge makes you glow with pride. It lead you to think that your business needed a place online to sell your cheese, so you launched an e-commerce... or should you say cheese-commerce website. When searching for a domain name, you wanted one that let every visitor know they were getting legitimate Netherlands cheese.

No matter what your business does in the Netherlands, you're proud to be based out of this country. It's home to Stroopwafel, country-side cycling trails, canal houseboats, tulip fields, high tech companies, and so much more. Anything you build in the Netherlands is an exciting endeavour that you want to share with the local economy, so build it on the .NL domain.

Tiered pricing means that the domain registry has marked some some domain names within this extension as costing more or less than others.

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.
