Why choose a .sh domain?
Ssssh… are you listening? That’s the sound of infinite domain-hacking potential. .sh is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Saint Helena, a remote British island territory. But this TLD can be so much more than that. Because it’s common for English words to end in “sh,” .sh is the perfect way to get a domain name that feels ultra-customized—or even lets your audience in on a secret.
.sh facts, stats & history
Although .sh is the ccTLD for Saint Helena, you don’t need to live there to use this domain. Where .sh really shines is as a super-memorable domain name for companies with names or products that end in 'sh'— think catchafi.sh or makeawi.sh. You could also use it as part of 'ssssh' or 'hush,' to let people know your business is underground and exclusive.
