.NAME Domain Name Registrations
Introduced in 2001, the Dot NAME top-level extension is the sole TLD meant for personal websites only. These domains can consist of personal or fictional names, aliases and/or other titles people are known by. At the beginning, only third-level registrations were permitted, so if you wanted to secure john.doe.name, you were supposed to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration procedures were loosened and second-level registrations were also allowed. Already registered 3rd-level names remained operational.
Through our firm, you can obtain your dot NAME domain for a period between one and ten years. You will have the opportunity to update the WHOIS contacts, to park your domain, to create Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an existing domain to our company if you have its EPP transfer authorization key from the current domain registrar and we will renew it when the transfer has been finished. There are no particular stipulations on who can reserve a .NAME domain name, but in order to keep the idea behind its establishment alive, the dot NAME Registry organization may check who the owner is and if there is no relation between the owner and the actual domain name, the registration can be challenged.
The .NAME domain is among the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no further cost. In this way, your dot NAME domain will be recognized in your country or area with the right spelling in your local language.
