  • About domain names / 
  • Are there any differences between Norwegian domain names and others?
Norwegian domain names end in .no and are only available to Norwegian organizations and private individuals. There are hundreds of these so-called top-level domains in the world, and many of them are available to Norwegians. What’s the difference?  

When you get right down to it, they all work the same way. Even so, their operation differs somewhat, and Internet users attribute different values and expectations to different top-level domains. The Norwegian top-level domain is known for high quality, and people generally trust websites and domain names ending in .no. The vast majority of Norwegian enterprises choose a Norwegian domain name and recognize the advantages of building their online presence in a good “neighbourhood” with a good reputation.
