In 2003, a Google Search website was made available for Guernsey, which still uses the .gg domain.
Usage in video gamesEdit
Multiple video game and esports websites use this domain, because "gg" is a common initialism used in multiplayer video games as an abbreviation for the phrase "good game", usually said at the end of a match. For example, the VoIP application Discord, commonly used with multiplayer games, uses the domain discord.gg as a redirect to their main website, discord.com, as well as for Discord server invite links.
Names have been registered principally directly at second level, however the following legacy sub-domains are still open for registration:
- .co.gg: commercial/personal domains
- .net.gg: Internet service providers and commercial
- .org.gg: organizations (free to local good causes)
