.QA is the official Internet country-code Top-level Domain (ccTLD) for the State of Qatar — a small, yet amazingly powerful Arab country, which occupies a tiny peninsula in the Persian Gulf.
Why register .QA domains?
The discovery of oil more than 80 years ago shot Qatar to economic stardom and today the state is the world's richest country per capita, with approximately 14% of the households being dollar millionaires and with under 0.1% of the population being unemployed.
Furthermore, the level of human development in Qatar is the highest in the Arab World and the country is recognized as a high-income economy by the World Bank. With no income tax, Qatar is also one of the countries with the lowest tax rates in the world.
The financial future of Qatar is as attractive as its present. Qatar will be the first Arab country to host a FIFA World Cup tournament, despite the not-so-favourable climate conditions.
Also, Qatar is planning to invest over $120 billion in the energy sector in the next 10 years. In such a lucrative investment climate, a .QA-based online presence represents a great catalizer for business opportunities, both online and offline.
Who can register .QA domains?
.QA domain names are unrestricted and are open for registration to everyone since September 2011. So, individuals and businesses from all parts of the world can invest in a .QA-based web presence, just like locals do.
You can register .QA domains for up to 5 years at a time. An option to edit the domain's WHOIS details is available as well.
Unfortunately, .QA transfers are not allowed, so once registered with us, your .QA domain cannot be transferred away to another registrar.
If you need assistance in registering your .QA domain name, just open a support ticket from the 'Help' section and we'll help you out in no time.
