Why choose a .gg domain?
As far as domain extensions go, .gg is pretty unique. It’s the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Bailiwick of Guernsey. But as a domain name, it carries a host of other possibilities. Of course, .gg is the perfect TLD for anyone based in Guernsey, a small island territory in the English Channel. But it's snappy, memorable nature also makes it perfect for other uses—especially anything related to video gaming, since it’s a well-known online abbreviation for 'good game.'
.gg facts, stats & history
Although .gg is the ccTLD for the Bailiwick of Guernsey, you don’t need to live there to use this domain extension. It’s managed by Island Networks, which also oversees .je, the ccTLD for the neighbouring district of Jersey. This TLD’s second meaning may sound surprising, but 'gg' is immediately recognizable to anyone immersed in online video gaming, whether it's RPGs, eSports, or otherwise. It's an acronym for 'good game' and is commonly shared among players to show camaraderie and goodwill.
