|Why register .va?|
|Vatican City is the Holy See's independent city-state, an enclave within Rome, Italy. With an area of just 49 hectares and a population of about 825, it is the smallest sovereign state in the world by both area and population.
The unique economy of Vatican City is supported financially by donations from the faithful, by the sale of postage stamps and souvenirs, fees for admission to museums, and sales of publications.
If you conduct business from within Vatican City, it is time to register a .va domain extension. Registering a dot 'VA' 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, Vanuatu. 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 Vatican City 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.
