.RUHR is the domain for the Ruhrgebiet or "Ruhr Region" of Germany and as of today it is officially available for registration! If you live in the Ruhr Region, then .RUHR is a great option that will give you more opportunity to find the domain name you really want. Both the popular .COM and the popular .DE already have millions of registrations, but since .RUHR is brand new it offers registrants the chance to register a short, memorable domain name that is right for them. Plus, you get to show off your Ruhr pride all at the same time!

For businesses, a .RUHR will let your customers know that you're local, making your website a great compliment to a brick-and-mortar store. For individuals, .RUHR can be the address of your personal website, blog, and more. For those who already have an established website on another TLD, you may want to consider protecting your brand by registering that domain name on .RUHR. It's easy to forward your .RUHR domain to your existing website if you don't want to build a new site.

You can register your .RUHR domain in both English and German by using our IDN search. And don't forget that we now accept Euros (and CNY if you prefer)! Register your .RUHR domain today and create your online presence!
