Launched in 2001, the .NAME top-level domain is the only one supposed to be for personal web pages only. These domain names can be personal or fictional names, aliases and/or other labels people are popular by. At first, solely third-level registrations were possible, so if you planned to purchase john.doe.name, you were required to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration process was loosened and second-level registrations were also permitted. Already taken third-level domains remained functional.
Through our company, you can purchase your dot NAME domain for an interval between 1 and 10 years. You will have the chance to switch the WHOIS contacts, to park your domain, to set up Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an already purchased domain to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from the present registrar company and we will renew it after the transfer has been done. There are no particular rules on who can book a dot NAME domain, but in order to maintain the idea behind its creation alive, the Registry may check who the owner is and if there is no connection between the owner and the actual domain, the registration could be challenged.
The .NAME generic domain name extension is among the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no added cost. In this way, your .NAME domain will be recognized in your country or region with the accurate spelling in your local language.
