The official ccTLD for the Philippines – .PH, added to your domain portfolio
With the number of .PH sites hosted on our servers going up every day, it should come as no surprise that .PH is now part your portfolio of domain names.
.PH, the official TLD for the Republic of Philippines, is an excellent choice for Philippine residents and businesses, as well as for international businesses that cater to this Pacific island country.
Why register .PH domains?
The Philippines has proven to be a promising country to invest and develop a stable business in.
After decades of economic stagnation, the Philippines now has one of the fastest-recovering economies in Eastern Asia, thanks to the economic liberalization program launched in the 90’s and the recently taken investment measures.
The focus has been placed on industries like tourism and business process outsourcing, which now offer great investment opportunities for local and foreign businesses.
The country’s major trading partners include Japan, China, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, as well as the United States and Germany.
Goldman Sachs includes the Philippines in its list of the “Next Eleven” economies right after China and India, while HSBC predicts that by 2050, the Philippines will have the 16th largest economy in the world and the largest economy in Southeast Asia.
So, if you are seeking to reach the promising Philippine markets and audiences, this is the right TLD for your site.
Who can register .PH domains?
The official registry of the .PH domain is dotPH Domains Inc.
.PH domain names are unrestricted and are open for registration to all individuals, businesses and organizations from all parts of the world.
You and your customers can register .PH domains for up to 9 years at a time. An option to edit the domain’s WHOIS details is available as well.
.PH transfers are not allowed, so once registered with us, your .PH domain cannot be transferred away to another registrar, as per the registry’s official rule.
How to activate .PH domains on your store?
.PH domains are included by default in the reseller hosting portfolios of those of you who have not edited the TLD listing in the Control Panel so far.
If, however, you have re-ordered the way in which the TLDs are listed, you will find .PH at the bottom of the TLD table in the My Domain Offers section of the Reseller Control Panel where the non-active domain extensions are located.
Simply activate the TLD using the ‘bulb’ icon and it will instantly be added to your domain portfolio.
As we know, the pH of a liquid matters very much, and so does registering a .PH domain name for your Philippines-based site 🙂Originally published Thursday, October 23rd, 2014 at 4:02 pm, updated October 27, 2014 and is filed under Domain Names.
