What is SIDN?

The letters SIDN stand for Foundation Internet Domain registration Netherlands. Since 1996, SIDN manages all NL domain names. In addition to the registration and the issuing of domain names, the Foundation also insures that internet users can make use of these domains - wherever they are, at any given time.

Domain Registration
The Foundation manages more than 4 million NL domain names, with three-quarters billion searches per day. That is quite a number: there is one registration on every five inhabitants of the Netherlands. SIDN also has a leading role. It plays an active role in the technical policy and political developments of the internet, at a national as well as an international level.

TransIP is a registrar, which enables us to register Domains at the SIDN. Before ordering, first check if your domain name is available.
