    The ONLY thing you need to be cognizant of is that not all Registrars provide all of the available TLDs.

    For example,. you can get .de and .in from Uniregistry but you cannot get .es

    You can get .es, .de and in from NameCheap.

    That stated, although I am an American, I own a number of .uk, .de, .eu, .mx, and .za.

    The only country I had issues with (initially) was the .uk domain name registrations. The registrar demanded to see a goverment ID, (apparently from the UK) which I do not have. I responded by stating that I owned all of the domain name TLDs for that particular domain name and that this acqusition was necessary to protect our brand. They approved the purchase and since then if I purchase a .uk domain through them, there are no issues.

    Hope that helps.
