.shop domains make it clear at a glance what a website is all about: Online shops and offers. Not only for startups and creative marketing campaigns, .shop domains are a great chance in the run for the best web addresses. They might be able to find and register domain names which are not available anymore in other domain name spaces. Even if you are not sure if you will offer an online shop in the future, you should register the “yourbrand”.shop domain in order to avoid others being faster than you.
There are no hidden costs. Included in the price is the complete domain administration by you as a user in your customer area. You can freely change the DNS records and also the name servers of your domain. An automatic renewal of your .shop domain for subsequent years only takes place if you do not deactivate the renewal in the customer area. The price per year in the following years is 59.99 EUR (or the current equivalent in USD) per year.
You will receive your discounted price of 0.99 EUR (or the current equivalent in USD) for the first year if you enter the promotional code shop1118 when completing your order (you will find an entry field in the shopping basket for this).
