A domain name for every one, the start of Mijndomein
Making domain names accessible, affordable and easy

‘when they say it is not possible,
the adventure begins’

Henri de Jong

Mijndomein was founded by Henri de Jong and his co-founder. In 2003, purchasing a domain name was not simple. It was expensive, around 45 euros per domain name. Complex, you had to be a business and there was a three day waiting period before your application was granted. It was a true hassle. Only a few players dominated the game and they were not user friendly. Mijndomein saw an opportunity to change the game. They launched a website that allowed you to buy a domain name in a few clicks without the waiting period and five times less expensive than its competitors. This allowed for a much larger audience to buy a domain name, not only the happy few. Mijndomein grew fast. With over 250 thousand customers and more than a million domain names in its portfolio, it has become the market leader in the Netherlands.

After the first growth in offering domain names. It expanded the business with easy to understand packages that could be used without having a very technical background. Offering e-mail and webhosting at an attractive price point, made the business grow even further. Mijndomein was the first company in the Netherlands to introduce Shared Hosting at scale.

We are a group of colleagues, brands, members and investors with a shared interest. Making more impact on society with less impact on the environment.
