Register Your .BE Domain
.BE is the country code top-level domain extension (ccTLD) of Belgium and is very popular in its home country. Registering a .BE domain is a great way to connect with the Belgian market, establishing trust and credibility with just one domain. Do you already have an established website on another domain extension? .BE can be the perfect compliment to let customers know you're open for business in Belgium.
Since .BE is not restricted, it can be registered by anyone around the world. For this reason, as well as the fact that there are many words that end in be, it has become a great option for domain hacks. You can get creative and register .BE domain hacks such as may.be or glo.be. .BE can also be used as a custom short link, which is a great way to build a personal or business brand. For example, YouTube uses the short link (which is also a domain hack) youtu.be. See our blog post about the benefits of a custom short link and how to get your own.
Protect Your Brand with a .BE Domain
If you're in Belgium, you need to make .BE a part of your domain portfolio! Owning your domain name on .BE will ensure that no one else is receiving traffic that should be going to your website. You can either choose to create a website that caters to the Belgian audience or use our free domain forwarding to redirect traffic to your main website (or even your main website translated to Dutch or French).

.BE Domain Requirements
When you register your .BE domain, you are required to set a registrant. You must specify a registrant name; setting a registrant organization is optional. Please note that the registrant cannot be changed through the Dynadot control panel. You must create a trade order, which costs the same as a registration and includes a 1 year renewal. For more information, check out our .BE FAQs in our help files.
