Set up in 2001, the .NAME universal domain name extension is the sole TLD planned for personal sites only. These domains can be personal or fictitious names, nicknames and/or other designations people are known by. At first, just 3rd-level registrations were permitted, so if you wished to secure john.doe.name, you were supposed to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration procedures were liberalized and second-level registrations were also allowed. Already bought 3rd-level domains remained active.
Through our company, you can secure your .NAME domain for an interval between one and ten years. You will be able to edit the WHOIS information, to park your domain, to modify Custom DNS records, etc. You can also transfer an active domain to our firm if you have its EPP transfer code from the present registrar firm and we will renew it after the transfer has been finalized. There are no specific prerequisites on who can purchase a dot NAME domain, but in order to keep the goal behind its creation alive, the .NAME Registry may check who the Registrant is and if there is no connection between the owner and the actual domain, the registration could be challenged.
The .NAME generic domain is among the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no added cost. In this way, your dot NAME domain will be recognized in your country or region with the proper spelling in your native language.
