Trends and general information
The .es domain is a country-specific ccTLD allocated to the Kingdom of Spain. It has existed since 1988 and is managed by the "Network Information Center of Spain". As ccTLD, it is mainly used by Internet users in Spain, who want to launch internet presence for companies or individuals. Latin American users also rely on the .es domain and buy or register their personal domain, because in this region, this TLD also has positive effects on search engine results and for users.
The .es domain offers decisive advantages for Spanish companies or individuals, as national search engines in Spanish or Latin American countries often rate their internet addresses as exceptional, and the positions obtained in the ranking are suitably high. The conventional internet user is told by the .es domain that it is a web site, probably in Spanish. Significantly higher click-through rates are expected because a Spanish citizen is more likely to visit a .es domain than, say, a .de domain.
The desired .es domain can be purchased and registered by any user around the world - regardless of nationality, place of activity or place of residence. NAV makes the domain available within seconds after registration and allows editorial work on the website. This allows you to register your desired domain in one day and launch an attractive website on the World Wide Web.

There are high affinities between .es domains and certain generic gTLDs, such as .net or .com -, also country-specific level-level domains, such as .eu for the European Union or .at for Austria being common relatives.
It is difficult to estimate the exact number of registered .es domains. Statistics suggest that by the end of 2010, over 1.2 million .es internet addresses were registered. In a European comparison, the .es domain is one of the most popular TLDs. Due to the advantages for Spanish companies and individuals, it can be assumed that the number of .es domains will continue to grow in the future - if you are interested in Spanish ccTLD, it is advisable to register the desired domain as quickly as possible.
