As the official country-code domain for the Republic of Korea, .kr holds a special meaning for the 40 million+ Koreans who regularly use the internet to learn, connect and shop.
According to the Korean Internet and Security Agency (KISA), half of all web users over the age of 12 shop online, spending an average of 60,200 Won per month for goods, services and reservations.
Top online purchases include:
- Cosmetics (68%)
- Clothing, footwear, sporting goods or accessories (50%)
- Booking or reservations (46%)
- Computer equipment or parts (31%)
- Video including movies and TV programs (30.5%)
Registering a .kr domain is the surest way to reach these consumers, since they’re more likely to trust a website with this familiar web extension. Use your .kr domain to promote your company and sell your products or services on the web.
