.st Domain Name Registration

Why choose a .st domain?

.st overview

All kinds of businesses with names that end with “st” have chosen this domain extension as the foundation for their online presence. Originally designated as the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for São Tomé and Príncipe, an African island nation close to the equator, brands have since adopted .st to set themselves apart online and avoid a complex domain name, no matter where in the world they're based.

.st facts, stats & history

.st was first introduced in 1997 and is managed by the German company, Bahnhof. Although it was initially intended as the ccTLD for São Tomé and Príncipe, in recent years, the domain extension has been used as an abbreviation for a variety of entities (and locations) around the world. This includes the state of Styria, in Austria, Stockholm, and newspapers like the Washington Post and Australian Post.
