.gg is the country code top-level domain for the Bailiwick of Guernsey, including the islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou and Lihou (plus several uninhabited islands and islets). It is administered by Island Networks.

A new trend is to use .gg for domain names relating to e-sports, where "gg" is a commonly used initialism for "good game".

The Search Engine DuckDuckGo uses the domain ddg.gg as a shortened version of duckduckgo.com.[1]

Second-level domains[edit]

Since 2000, 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 - organisations (free to local good causes)
