About .ONL Domain Names
The .onl domain name originates from the abbreviation of "online," and is unique in that search engines actually identify it as "online" to show relevant search results. For most users, .onl will be the ultimate display of all things internet-related, from growing a small business to helping build out a community to creating a distinct personal space.
