TLD type
Country code top-level domain

Intended use
Entities connected with  Guernsey

.gg is the country code top-level domain for the crown dependency of Guernsey, including the islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou and Lihou (plus several uninhabited islands and islets). The domain is administered by Island Networks, who also administer the .je domain for neighbouring territory Jersey. Many eSports websites use .gg for domain names, where "gg" is a commonly used initialism for "good game".

In 2003, a Google Search website was made available for Guernsey, which used the .gg domain. The search engine DuckDuckGo also uses the domain ddg.gg as a redirect to their main website, duckduckgo.com.

Second-level domains

Names have been registered principally directly at second level, however the following legacy sub-domain are still open for registration:

  • .co.gg – commercial/personal domains
  • .net.gg – Internet service providers and commercial
  • .org.gg – organizations (free to local good causes)
  • References
