To this end, CERN designs, builds and operates particle accelerators and the associated experimental areas, as well as connected information technology, administrative and industrial services. CERN’s flagship project, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), is producing unprecedented physics results. .. Initially, the .CERN TLD will be a single-registrant TLD: only CERN will be eligible to register domain names.

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
