.AC is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, a small set of islands in the southern Atlantic Ocean. If you’re not one of the 7.7 thousand residents of these 3 islands, however, then fear not – you can still grab a .AC domain because there are no residency requirements!


Why Would I Want a .AC Domain?

Though this region has over 7 thousand residents, you might be shocked to learn that this is not exactly a large number when compared to the rest of the world’s population – shocking, right? If you’re one of these residents then you’ll definitely want to show your patriotism by using your official ccTLD for your website.

For all of the other 7 billion people out there, .AC is a great option for those looking for a generic TLD to use for their websites. We know how hard it can be to find a .COM that perfectly matches your name, which is why you’ll want to consider using a .AC that’s available. Plus, since it’s not as common, .AC will help your domain name stand out and be more memorable.
