.tw is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Taiwan. It can be used for both commercial and personal websites to provide localized information about your products and services. Whether you’re a clothing retailer, a Hakka musician, an online teacher, a translation agency, or just someone with a love for Taiwanese culture and cuisine, a .tw domain extension is for you.

.tw facts, stats & history

Introduced in 1989, the .tw registry is maintained by the Taiwanese non-profit organization Taiwan Network Information Center (TWNIC). TWNIC domain names are categorized into English domain names, Chinese domain names, and various other types. While registering an English .tw domain is a straightforward process, getting a .tw Chinese domain name requires the applicant to first register a corresponding English domain name.
