Are Domain Names With A National Extension Like '.co.uk' or '.cn' OK?
We are frequently asked by people who are planning to launch a website in the UK and Canada whether they should use their national domain name extensions which are '.co.uk' and '.cn'.
My advice is the same for anyone in any country.
However if you want to reach an audience outside of your own country at launch or at anytime in the future you should choose a domain which is not tied to a specific country.
- plus your own national domain name
Domain name registration is still quite cheap so this represents a good investment. Your domain name could become your online business' most valuable asset.
