September Promotion: Make your .GG domain a Good Game

Wednesday, September 9, 2020

Very few people know that .GG has been the country-specific top-level domain of the small but historic Channel Island Guernsey for almost 25 years. Despite its geographical affiliation, .GG domains are available to everyone in the world. In recent years this domain extension has become more and more popular as a result of large companies and organizations using .GG domains.

Anyone who is familiar with sports and video gaming knows that "GG" means "good game". It is used as a sign of sportsmanship and to express that you had fun competing against your opponents and that it was a fair match. Since the end of the 90s, it has been common practice and part of the etiquette of many video gamers to say „GG“ after every game or to post it in the chat. Comparable to a handshake or a hug at the end of a live sports event.

.GG is therefore the choice for all domains in the area of gaming and sports. Possible areas of use are eSports, online and offline competitive events - from basketball to tennis up to poker and chess - video game tutorials, news, forums and many more.
Likewise, video game developers, testers, critics, bloggers, game developers, fan groups, but also gamers who want to share their gaming skills with the world, can attract the attention of their target group with a .GG domain. The multi-billion dollar video game industry comes with numerous dedicated fans that you can reach with such a concise and easily recognizable domain extension.

Of course there are other uses and meanings for the abbreviation „GG“: the German constitution, the district of Groß-Gerau in Hessia, Germany, "GrinGrin" or "gotta go" in chats.

As always, there are hardly any limits to creativity here. Many companies are also using .GG - Domains for sales and marketing campaigns or just as a short extension and thus a memorable alternative to classics like .COM or .NET.

So-called "domain hacks" are also an effective eye-catcher. Here the name is cleverly supplemented by the domain ending. For example: (still available).

No matter how you want to use .GG, register your domain during our September promotion for only 29.00* € instead of 97.38 €!

We will soon be making some changes to our nameserver setup:

  • On 01.11.2020 we take the nameservers and out of operation.

The nameserver sets available in our customer area will be adjusted accordingly and you will not have to make any changes for your domains.

In the following cases you will still have to take action:

  • You use the INWX name servers as virtual nameservers. In this case, you will receive instructions by e-mail to adjust your affected domains.
  • You are using scripts that set one of the discontinued servers via API.
