Easily find a domain name and choose a service provider
On the SIDN homepage there's now a prominent look-up for checking whether a .nl domain name is still available. If the name you've thought of hasn't been taken, we'll show you a random selection of eight registrars (hosting service providers) who can register it for you.
Already chosen a registrar that's not one of the eight? No problem. Select from a comprehensive list of registrars offering registration services to the public. Want a registrar that offers a particular service feature – say DNSSEC or IPv6? Then just click the service icon to filter the list. Select a registrar and we'll direct you to a page on their website where you can apply for your chosen .nl quickly and easily.
Filter options to help you choose a registrar
When choosing a .nl service provider, you can narrow down the choice to the ones that offer the service features you want. It's quick and easy to filter for these services:
Extra security for your .nl, which stops crooks redirecting internet users to fake sites.
Ensures that in the future there will still be enough IP addresses to go round.
- DBS and .nl Control
Security enhancements for organisations that want to protect the integrity of their brands or webshops.
Is the name you want already taken? We can help!
There's no shortage of great .nls you could have. All the same, you might find that the first domain name you think of has already been taken by someone else. Don't worry, we'll help you find another. We'll make suggestions out of .nl domain names that have been used in the past, and unregistered names like the one you've just looked up. So that you can get yourself a .nl that fits the bill.
