The Liechtenstein domain ending is mostly popular in the regional area of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and France. Companies, individuals, bloggers, writers, journalists and many others buy and register their own .li domain in order to be found on national search engines. Furthermore, a country-specific domain emphasises the national orientation of a business or online offer.
Misuse to the same extent as done with the .tv domain or the .fm domain is not happening with the .li domain. However, as with many other ccTLDs, there are certain groups that originally use nationally-targeted domains for other purposes. For example, the .li domain is seeing a large increase in registrations of New York-based companies based in Long Island. Furthermore, many companies from Germany or Switzerland also use the TLD .li to create domains: as a fictitious example the domain müs.li
You have between 3 and 63 characters at your disposal to choose your .li domain name: You can buy and register pure digit domains - you can also use special characters, numbers and hyphens. The easyname customer service team will be happy to help you purchase and register your personal .li domain or one of the related TLDs. Among other things, we offer you the country-specific Croatian domain .com.hr, the top-level domain of France .fr and the .ru domain of the Russian Federation. For questions and suggestions, you can contact us via the contact form or write an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The .li domain is not one of the top-level domains that is often misused, so the number of registered domains is largely reduced to a specific group - in this case, the border region around Liechtenstein and certain outliers such as companies on Long Island, New York. At the end of March 2012, the responsible registration authority SWITCH recorded around 70,000 registered .li domains. In the last five years, the number of registered domains has almost doubled.
If you also want to secure your personal .li domain for a company or for a private web project, then you can do that conveniently online at easyname. There are no procurement guidelines - you can buy and register your domain directly.
