The .cl domain is the country code top-level domain for the country of Chile. The extension was introduced in 1987 and was opened for registration to the general public around 2013. The domain is quite popular with Chilean citizens and is also frequently used as a ‘domain hack’ domain. For example, Oracle uses .cl as a domain link shortener, ora.cl and Microsoft once used it for an old social network, so.cl.
The .cl domain is the right choice for businesses operating in Chile, or businesses looking to start-up in Chile and introduce their products to the Chilean market. Ownership of a .cl domain emphasizes the local presence in Chile, which is needed to get the attention of local customers. The .cl domain is widely used in Chile and is trusted by citizens of Chile as an extension that provides legitimate services and information targeted towards Chile.
If you are looking to start a business or website in Chile and gain the attention of the locals, the .cl domain is perfect for you. With this domain, you will rank higher in local search results, and potential customers will know you have a presence in Chile. When a Chilean visits your website and you are using the .cl domain, they will instantly have a sense of connection with your content.
Don’t get complicated. An easy-to-remember domain is always best.
Stay true to your brand. Be distinct but choose a domain your audience will recognize.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. That perfect domain could be gone by tomorrow if you don’t grab it now.
Just because the internet is high-tech doesn’t mean your domain name should be.
Grab similar domain names to protect your brand: .net, .org, .co, or even .photo.
Anyone is able to register a .cl domain, even if they are not in Chile or operating a business there. In the past, there were restrictions on registration, but this ended in 2013 when regulation on registering .cl domains was relaxed.
