Why choose a .tm domain?
.tm is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Turkmenistan, a landlocked country in Central Asia. But because 'tm' is a common abbreviation for 'trademark,' it's commonly marketed as a domain for businesses with trademarks. Whether you're expanding your business into Turkmenistan or you work in the trademark sector, this domain extension could be the perfect choice.
.tm facts, stats & history
.tm was first introduced in 1997 and is managed by NIC.TM, a subsidiary of the Internet Computer Bureau. Although .tm is popular with Turkmenistani businesses, you don't need to live there to use this domain extension. This makes it a great domain hack for trademark owners or any business that wants a domain name that’s memorable and on-brand.
