About the .IM Domain

The .IM domain is the country code (ccTLD) of the Isle of Man, a part of the British Isles. However, because anyone can buy a .IM domain, it has become popular around the world. .IM domains are great for personal websites because .IM can stand for the English contraction for "I am", or "I'm". Are you a Star Wars fan? Perfect for Yoda Grammar, .IM domains are! We all know Yoda's famous "backwards" quotes. Use them as inspiration and buy a .IM domain such as ajedi.im, stormtrooper.im, or even the more everyday apilot.im or headchef.im.

Businesses also buy .IM domains! The .IM domain has been used extensively by real estate companies in German, French, and Italian speaking countries because the .IM domain is short for real estate, or "immobilien" in German, "immobilier" in French, and "immobiliare" in Italian. Companies that produce instant messaging - or IM - software also buy .IM domains, since they just happen to be the right abbreviation.

The .IM domain extension is also a great option for domain hacks because there are so many words that end in im. Although domains such as h.im, tr.im, and sw.im may already be taken, all you need to do is get creative. If you have a dating (findh.im?), weight loss (gettr.im?) or sports (lovetosw.im?) website, buying a .IM domain hack may be right for you. Even if you already have an established website on another top-level domain (TLD), you can buy your .IM domain hack for your custom short link. .IM is even one of the few domains that you can register with as little as two characters. There are still a lot of .IM domains available, so buy your .IM domain today!

Protect Your Brand with a .IM Domain

We recommend buying your .IM domain name to protect your brand. If you don't register it, someone else will and it will be much more difficult and expensive to get a domain once it is already owned. If you don't want to set up a separate website, you can simply use your .IM domain to redirect traffic back to your main website with our free domain forwarding. On the flip side, if you buy your .IM domain for your main website, we recommend considering other TLDs that would make sense to register. Once you buy your .IM domain name, you should also register common misspellings to catch that traffic and redirect it to your main .IM domain.
