.NAME Domain Names
Established in 2001, the Dot NAME universal top-level extension is the only one planned for personal sites only. These domain names can consist of personal or fictitious names, nicknames and/or other designations people are known by. Initially, solely 3rd-level registrations were allowed, so if you desired to book john.doe.name, you were required to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration procedures were loosened and 2nd-level registrations were also allowed. Already taken 3rd-level domains remained operational.
Through our firm, you can reserve your dot NAME domain for a time interval between 1 and 10 years. You will have the chance to modify the WHOIS information, to park your domain, to set up Custom DNS records, etc. You can also transfer an existing domain to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from the present domain provider and we will renew it when the transfer has been completed. There are no special requirements on who can get a .NAME domain, but in order to keep the goal behind its creation alive, the .NAME Registry may verify who the owner is and if there is no link between the owner and the actual domain, the registration might be challenged.
The dot NAME top-level domain 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 precise spelling in your native language.
