At the end of 2013, a total of 1,696,538 “.es” domains were registered. Management of these Internet domain names assigned under the country code for Spain is entrusted to the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism through the public entity Red.es. This figure compares with a total of 1,614,149 in the previous year and reflects an increase of 5.1%.

The new directive on “reassignment of domain names of general interest” is intended to regulate the procedure for reassigning domain names in those cases in which said names have been abusively registered, implementing the specific procedural rules in the National Domain Names Plan.

  • The .es domain accounts for approximately 50% of the domain names market in Spain. It has overtaken the generic .com domain since 2007.
  • In the last 12 months, .es domains have experienced growth of 17%, with more than 1,000 new domains registered each day. This has represented an increase of more than 260,000 .es domain names in 2011.
  • The .es domain is the Spanish language benchmark at an international level, enabling web pages containing information in Spanish to transmit their identity and proximity.
The Registries for ".es" & ".se" exchange experiences and best practices

A delegation from the Swedish Top Level Domain Registry (.se) visited Spain last week to learn about the Dominios.es management model and to share experiences in this field.

Why choose a .es domain? Reason 2: Availability

Availability is a key factor when choosing and registering a domain. In the case of .es, availability is a clear competitive advantage, as it is a less saturated domain in comparison with others such as .com, .net or .org to name but a few.
