What is a .gg domain?

A domain with the ending or country-code top level domain (ccTLD) “.gg” is the official domain name for the Channel Island of Guernsey and a handful of other islands in the English Channel. But it’s not limited to those living or working there. In the e-sports world and in online gaming, the .gg domain name is becoming an increasingly popular extension. That’s because “gg” stands for “good game” – a term exchanged by gamers at the end of a game as a sign of respect. But there are many other creative applications for the up-and-coming .gg domain ending.
