How many Characters can a Domain Name have?

Domain names can have up to 63 characters, including the letters a to z, numbers 0 to 9, and hyphens. Some domain names do have restrictions on minimum characters.

You could even choose something like can-have-up-to-63-characters.com for your domain name.

You will sometimes find references to 67 characters in domain names. This includes the dot and the letters c-o-m as an additional 4 characters.

The valid characters for use in all domain name are:

  • Any of the letters a to z (for example, abcdefg.com).
  • Any numbers 0 to 9 (for example, 911.com).
  • You may also use a hyphen (-) (for example, place-hyphens-here.com).
  • The domain can be a combination of numbers, letters and hyphens.
  • The domain can begin and end in a number (for example, 1to1000.com).

A domain name is your unique address on the Internet and says a lot about who you are and what you do. We recommend to all customers keeping the domain short and not using any hyphens for best results.
