.NAME Domain Names
Set up in 2001, the Dot NAME universal domain extension is the single TLD meant for personal websites only. These domain names can be personal or fictional names, nicknames and/or other labels people are famous by. At first, only 3rd-level registrations were allowed, so if you wanted to buy john.doe.name, you were required to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration process was liberalized and second-level registrations were also permitted. Already taken 3rd-level domains remained active.
Through our firm, you can purchase your .NAME domain for a period between 1 and 10 years. You will have the chance to edit the WHOIS information, to park your domain, to set up Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an active domain to our firm if you take its EPP transfer code from the current registrar firm and we will renew it once the transfer has been done. There are no specific conditions on who can get a dot NAME domain, but in order to keep the goal behind its establishment alive, the .NAME Registry may verify who the owner is and if there is no link between the owner and the actual domain name, the registration can be challenged.
The dot NAME universal top-level extension is among 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 area with the right spelling in your local language.
