The .game top-level domain (TLD) was designed as an easily recognizable digital home for the booming gaming industry. Since its introduction in 2016, dot game domains have become the go-to domain for businesses, organizations, and individuals that live and breathe gaming.

A .game domain name has the power to help you establish a strong brand identity online that can even outperform the results of a legacy domain like .com. But how does it do that? With a .game domain registration, you immediately increase your visibility. It identifies your website as gaming-related, allowing you to stand out from the competition and establish credibility.

Should I register .game or .gg?

If you're asking this question, you already know that either of those domains has the potential to be a perfect fit for your domain name needs, so why choose one when you can have both?

The main difference is their intended purpose and use. The .game domain extension was specifically designed for the gaming industry, while .gg or better known as “Good Game” in the gaming industry. It has also become a popular choice even though it was created as a country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Bailiwick of Guernsey, a group of islands in the English Channel.

The choice between registering a .game or .gg domain depends on your preference and availability because both are great options for websites related to gaming and e-sports.
