Why choose a .to domain?
Have you considered buying your next domain from a small island kingdom? The .to domain extension may represent Tonga, but these days the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) is used by brands and businesses of all kinds. From clever domain hacks to other “to” destinations, there are all kinds of ways you can put .to to good use.
.to facts, stats & history
The .to ccTLD is administered by the Tonga Network Information Center (TONIC) on behalf of the Government of Tonga. TONIC began selling .to domains for $100 per unit back in 1997, with every registration approved by the Prince of Tonga. Unlike most ccTLDs, .to does not keep public WHOIS records. They also uniquely allow—and even support—the creation of emoji domain names.
