Got information to share? A .info domain can be a good choice for anyone looking to create an information-rich website. Introduced in 2001, .info was intended to provide a more defined space for websites offering info about any given topic, making it easier for users to find what they’re searching for in a crowded and bustling internet.
Some of the world’s most trusted brands use the recognizable extension to help people engage with their ideas and messages. Over 9 million .info domains are registered today, showcasing information about products, services, research, causes, events, news, and everything between.
Anyone can register a .info domain for any purpose. So if you aim to inform the community, the country, or the world about virtually anything, .info can bring meaning to your web address, letting your audience know they’ve come to the right place.
Anyone with something to say or share can use a .info domain to their benefit. Individuals, small business owners, and big brands alike choose the extension to signal to visitors that their website is a reliable source of information on a given topic. As a way to build credibility and stand out, .info domains are among the most popular of all top-level domains (TLDs), up there with .net and .org (common .com alternatives).

Choose an ICANN-accredited domain registrar.
ICANN-accreditation means that the registrar adheres to strict operational standards, offers reliable and secure domain registration services, and is authorized to manage your domain name registrations. With DomainRegistry, you get the peace of mind of working with a registrar that has maintained ICANN accreditation since 1996.
Search for your domain.
Use your registrar’s domain name search tool to check if your desired domain name is available. If so, great! You can continue the registration process. If not, try variations on your domain name, or consider another TLD (like .net).
Provide accurate registrant information.
This usually includes your name, address, and contact details which help to verify and authorize your domain ownership. Domain privacy (WHOIS privacy) is a service offered by some domain registrars to keep your personal contract info private. Here at Domain Registry, we include free WHOIS privacy with every domain registration.
Secure your domain!
To complete the registration process, you’ll select the registration duration period (typically 1 to 10 years), choose any additional services, and submit your payment. Your total cost will vary by registrar, TLD, registration period, and any extras (like web hosting). Opt for auto-renewal to keep thing simple and ensure your domain stays with you for as long as needed.
