Why choose a .ag domain?
There’s more to .ag than you might think. As the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for a group of Caribbean Islands, .ag was initially intended for businesses based in Antigua and Barbuda. But these days, all sorts of brands are choosing this extension. It’s become especially popular in German-speaking countries, where 'ag' is the abbreviation for Aktiengesellschaft, the German term for a public limited company.
