.NAME Domain Name Registrations
Introduced in 2001, the Dot NAME domain extension is the sole TLD intended for personal sites only. These domain names can include personal or fictitious names, aliases and/or other labels people are known by. Initially, just 3rd-level registrations were allowed, so if you planned to purchase john.doe.name, you would have to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration procedures were liberalized and 2nd-level registrations were also permitted. Already purchased third-level domain names remained active.
Through our company, you can acquire your dot NAME domain for a period between one and ten years. You will have the chance to edit the WHOIS info, to park your domain, to modify Custom DNS records, etc. You can also transfer an existing domain to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from the present domain provider and we will renew it once the transfer has been finalized. There are no specific rules on who can register a .NAME domain, but in order to maintain the objective behind its establishment alive, the .NAME Registry organization may verify who the owner is and if there is no connection between the owner and the actual domain name, the registration could be challenged.
The .NAME universal 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 further cost. In this way, your dot NAME domain will be recognized in your country or region with the correct spelling in your local language.
