Buy an .im domain
The .im domain is a country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Isle of Man, the self-governing British Crown dependency. It was released in 1996, and the domain has been used by many businesses based on this island in the Irish Sea.
Since 2006 it’s been available for anyone to use, and it’s proven popular with businesses that aren’t related to the Isle of Man. In particular, it’s used by companies that provide real estate, due it being the first two letters of the word for the industry in French (immobilier), German (immobilien) and Italian (immobiliare). It’s also used by instant messaging (IM) apps.
So if you’re from the Isle, or if it suits your business or project, .im is a good choice.

.im Domain FAQs
Do I need to have an Isle of Man address to buy a .im domain?
No, .im domains are available globally to all adults. As mentioned above, it’s popular with instant messaging and real estate businesses, as well for personal use.
Do you do discounts in the first year?
No: with 20i, what you pay in the first year is the same price as renewal. That way, you can make savings of up to 50% compared to other domain name registrars, so you save money in the long term.
We do offer discounts on domain names to those who wish resell our domains and hosting, please see Reseller Hosting discounts for more information.
Should I register other versions of my domain name if I have a .im TLD?
That’s up to you, but to be safe and protect your brand, we’d recommend buying other versions of your company name with different popular top-level domains.
For example, if you had the yourcompany.im web address, a competitor or criminal could buy yourcompany.com or similar. They could use it to compete, or even worse: fool your customers into being scammed.
How would I transfer my .im domain to you?
It’s simple to move your .im domain to us and start saving. You will need to get the domain name authorisation code from your current provider. Then, you need to search for it in our ‘Transfer a domain’ tool in our control panel, My20i. You can then start the transfer, which can take up to five days (but your website will remain online). You’ll be charged a transferral fee, but you’ll get one year’s registration.
