International Domain Registration: Spain
International Domain Registration - The advantages
Global domain registration can offer individuals and businesses alike distinct advantages. Even if a person, non-profit organization or company is not located in Spain, that doesn't mean they can't use web registration services to secure an .es domain. In fact, there are literally millions of available .es domains available right now through a variety of domain registration services.
With over 40 million people, Spain represents a huge, untapped market for many businesses. And since over 70% of the population in Spain uses the internet, a domain registration service such as Macaria.com can help such businesses reach close to 30 million people in Spain alone. That means there is genuine potential for both short and long term growth of the business. Even if expansion or growth is not in a business's immediate plans, using domain registration services to lock up websites for the business in the future is just sound planning. You never know what the future holds, especially in a global economy in the 21st century. By acquiring a variety of international domains, you are guaranteeing that you won't be left out in the cold, that you won’t find your desired website name already taken when you most need it, and that you have an answer to that all important question: What if?
Even if one doesn't have a business, an .es domain can help any other type of website generate more traffic by reaching out to a more global audience. That's a main advantage for international domains in general. The point of a website is to spread your message, and why would you want to limit it to just one country?
How to register an .es domain
All .es domains are governed by the Network Information Center of Spain (ESNIC). In the past, it was more difficult and expensive to use web registration services to purchase .es domains. Registrants had to have a direct connection to Spain, such as residing or conducting business there. In 2005, however, restrictions were eased and now a domain registration service like Macaria.com can offer these international domains to anyone in the world.
All one has to do to secure .es domains is to go to utilize our service that offers global domain registration and enter the desired domain name. If it's currently available for purchase, there are a variety of payment options such as credit card, PAYPAL, and international bank deposits. At Marcaria.com, you can currently purchase for $17 the following types of domains:
