.NAME Domain Name Registrations

Established in 2001, the .NAME domain name extension is the only one meant for personal sites only. These domains can consist of personal or fictitious names, aliases and/or other designations people are famous by. At first, only 3rd-level registrations were allowed, so if you planned to reserve john.doe.name, you would have to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration procedures were liberalized and second-level registrations were also permitted. Existing 3rd-level domain names remained running.

Through our company, you can reserve your .NAME domain for a period between 1 and 10 years. You will be able to alter the WHOIS contact information, to park your domain, to modify Custom DNS records, etc. You can also transfer an active domain to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from the current domain provider and we will renew it as soon as the transfer has been done. There are no particular prerequisites on who can purchase a dot NAME domain name, but in order to maintain the goal behind its establishment alive, the .NAME Registry may check who the owner is and if there is no connection between the owner and the actual domain name, the registration might be challenged.

The dot NAME generic top-level domain name extension 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 dot NAME domain will be recognized in your country or region with the proper spelling in your local language.
