Why choose a .sc domain?
.sc is a country code top-level domain (ccTLD) that's primarily used for the country Seychelles. While both South Carolina and Scotland have actively promoted .sc to their local businesses, registration is regulated by Seychelles. The .sc domain extension is also popular among businesses with the initials S.C., or with names that end in 'sc,' and can be used as a domain hack or to shorten the domain name.
.sc facts, stats & history
.sc opened registration in 1997. In the past, it wasn’t as easy to register a .sc domain name as it is today, but recently the ccTLD has opened up to an international audience. Some industries, like the sciences, actively use .sc to represent the science abbreviation.
