.NAME Domain Names
Started in 2001, the .NAME TLD is the only one meant for personal websites only. These domains can consist of personal or fictitious names, nicknames and/or other designations people are known by. Initially, just third-level registrations were possible, so if you wanted to secure 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 allowed. Already purchased third-level names remained active.
Through our company, you can reserve your dot NAME domain for a period between 1 and 10 years. You will be able to correct the WHOIS info, to park your domain, to create Custom DNS records, etc. You can also transfer an already registered domain to our firm if you have its EPP transfer authorization code from the present registration service provider and we will renew it after the transfer has been finished. There are no special requirements on who can book a .NAME domain name, but in order to maintain the idea 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 might be challenged.
The .NAME generic top-level domain name 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 right spelling in your local language.
