Register Your .SC Domain
.SC is the country code top-level domain extension (ccTLD) of the island country of Seychelles, but it is open for anyone to register. The .SC domain has been used by many websites in the US state of South Carolina, since "SC" is its abbreviation, making it the perfect way to let people know you're in South Carolina right in your URL and open up your website to over 4.5 million people. The state's website is sc.gov, the university's website is sc.edu, and now your website can be YourName.sc!
.SC domain names are also great for Scottish websites. Since Scotland doesn't have a ccTLD of its own, .SC has been used in place of the more broad .UK. Both business and personal sites in Scotland have used the .SC domain, which offers far more options than the more popular .UK or .CO.UK domains. Don't settle - get the domain name you really want with .SC!
.SC domains can also stand for source, social club, and more! You can even register a domain hack such as laserdi.sc or minidi.sc or use your .SC domain as your custom short link. Even if you already have an established website on another domain, a .SC custom short link is a great way to build a personal or business brand. See our blog post about the benefits of a custom short link and how to get your own.

About Scotland, the Adopted Home of .SC
Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom, which is why it does not have its own country code domain extension.

As of 2011, its population is just over 5 million.
