What are the registration requirements for .MV domains?

In order to register a .MV or .COM.MV domain, the domain owner must be a company with local presence in Maldives.

If you do not meet this requirement, we can register the domain in the name of our local representatives and then make it available to you. This option does not have an additional cost.

What does .MV stand for?

.MV represents the official domain extension or the internet country code top level domain (ccTLD) of Maldives. It was introduced in 1996 and registry is managed by DhivehiNet. Probably because of its high maintenance cost, this domain suffix is predominantly used by large companies and government agencies. Not too many small businesses are using this domain extension which means a lot of profitable keywords are still available for registration.

Aside from Maldives, MV is also used as an acronym or abbreviation for other words. Popular meanings of MV include: music video (film), medium voltage (electricity), Mountain View (city), market value (commerce), megavolt (unit of measurement) and mercury vapor (science).

Why register a .MV domain?

Maldives is an upper-middle-income economy as classified by World Bank. Its national revenues primarily come from tourism and fishing industries. This country is famous for its year-round tropical weather and thousands of coral islands. Tourists visit Maldives to experience its white sand beaches, blue lagoons and pristine waters.

There are many reasons why foreign investors are interested in expanding their business in this territory. Maldivian economy is predictable yet stable. Private enterprises, excellent legal system and a safe environment for operating a business are just few of the reasons why you should expand your brand name in Maldives. However, before you do that, consider buying a dotMV domain name.
  • Owning a website with .MV suffix is the first step in positioning your company in the Maldivian marketplace.
  • Online consumers can easily access your company information through your web page and it is one way to leave a professional image in their minds.
  • It makes your website unique and easily recognizable. With a generic TLD like .COM, it may be difficult to differentiate your website from others. But with a country code extension, your website is easier to remember because of its one of a kind domain suffix.
  • Country code domains are beneficial for organic SEO and local targeting strategies. Users from Maldives are automatically redirected to www.google.mv. This Maldivian version of Google provides local results to all searches. If your website is ending with .MV, it will get an instant boost in page rank.
  • Many premium domains and profitable keywords are still available. This domain suffix is popular but not widely used because of its strict registration guidelines. If your company is unable to meet the required documents, Marcaria.com can help. Contact us now.
  • This domain extension is the right choice for companies engaged in tourism services or businesses that provide package tours to Maldives since the company’s affiliation to Maldives is reinforced.
