The Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (CGI.br) now allows registration of city domain name extensions (ccTLDs) for larger cities in Brazil. Some of the new extensions are: .FLORIPA.BR, .GRU.BR, .RIO.BR, and .SALVADOR.BR, among others.
These names are administered through CGI.br who work to make sure the internet in Brazil is democratic and sustainable.
If, for example, you run a shoe store in Recife you can register the domain name of greatshoes.recife.br so that customers who live locally can easily find your website.
These highly searchable ccTLDs will help your business or personal website in Brazil because local ccTLDs are easier to find. Cities included are Aparecida, Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Curitiba, Florianópolis, Fortaleza, Foz do Iguaçu, Guarulhos, Manaus, Natal, Palmas, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador
To register a Brazilian domain name extension you need to be a resident of or have a business located in Brazil. When you register you need to have a Brazilian tax ID number and identify two name servers connected to your domain name. Your name servers can be public or private ones you use which direct visitors to your site. You can find more information in the following link Register City Domain Extension in Brazil.
