Started in 2001, the .NAME generic top-level domain name extension is the sole TLD supposed to be for personal sites only. These domains can include personal or fictitious names, nicknames and/or other labels people are popular by. At the beginning, solely 3rd-level registrations were permitted, so if you planned to buy john.doe.name, you would have to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration procedures were loosened and 2nd-level registrations were also permitted. Already acquired third-level domains remained operational.
Through our company, you can buy your .NAME domain for a period between 1 and 10 years. You will have the chance to change the WHOIS contact info, to park your domain, to create Custom DNS records, etc. You can also transfer an already registered domain to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from the current registrar company and we will renew it as soon as the transfer has been completed. There are no particular rules on who can buy a .NAME domain, but in order to maintain the objective behind its creation alive, the Registry may check who the Registrant is and if there is no link between the owner and the actual domain name, the registration may be challenged.
The dot NAME universal top-level domain is one of the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no additional cost. In this way, your .NAME domain will be recognized in your country or area with the right spelling in your local language.
