Guinea is a country in northwestern Africa. In the past, it was under the control of France, until in 1958 they voted overwhelmingly for independence.

Why register a .gn domain?

  • Guinea, located on the west-coast of West Africa, is formerly known as 'French Guinea' and sometimes referred to as Guinea-Conakry. This helps to distinguish it from other countries with "Guinea", like Equatorial Guinea and Guinea-Bissau in their name(s). Guinea is renowned for it's picturesque landscapes--especially their stunning 'viewpoints' and waterfalls. Guinea is culture-rich with art, music, dancing, etc.
  • If you conduct business from within Guinea it is time to register a .gn domain extension. Registering a dot 'GN' country code extension (top level domain name) will increase credibility for your business across the globe. Why? Country-code domains are meant specifically for businesses that do business within a particular country--in this case, Guinea. The .com domain (and other generic TLDs) are not targeted and that online space is saturated--and you likely already have the .com for your business.
  • Extend your brand presence with a more relevant, shorter domain--a ccTLD that differentiates you from competitors. Identify yourself as an official Guinean business owner and give your clients and constituents more confidence as they interact with you online. Country code domains also help you rank higher in local search results.
