.qa Regulations

Requirements & Information

Why register .qa?
Qatar is a progressive, thriving and innovative country located in Western Asia and an independent emirate on the west coast of the Persian Gulf. It has been sparsely inhabited and occupies a small desert peninsula. It is the world's second fattest growing country--with a World Bank high-income economy, backed by the world's third-largest natural gas reserves and oil reserves. Qatar is home to Souq Waqif, which is one of the oldest markets--a popular attraction for locals and visitors in Qatar. This country is known for its art and interestingly, some of Qatar's most renowned art is found in its airport.

If you conduct business from within Qatar, it is time to register a .qa domain extension. Registering a dot 'QA' 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, Qatar. 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 Qataris 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.
