.NAME Domain Names
Launched in 2001, the .NAME generic top-level domain name extension is the sole TLD planned for personal websites only. These domain names can be personal or fictitious names, nicknames and/or other labels people are known by. At the beginning, solely 3rd-level registrations were permitted, so if you wished to order john.doe.name, you were required to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration process was liberalized and second-level registrations were also allowed. Already taken 3rd-level domain names remained functional.
Through our firm, you can order your dot NAME domain for an interval between one and ten years. You will have the chance to switch the WHOIS contact details, to park your domain, to set up Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an active domain to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from the current registrar firm and we will renew it as soon as the transfer has been completed. There are no specific terms on who can book a dot NAME domain, but in order to maintain the objective behind its establishment alive, the .NAME Registry organization may verify who the Registrant is and if there is no relation between the owner and the actual domain, the registration may be challenged.
The .NAME universal top-level domain extension is amongst the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no extra cost. In this way, your dot NAME domain will be recognized in your country or area with the proper spelling in your native language.
