.IT Domain Name Registrations
Introduced in 1987, Italy’s dot IT country-code domain extension is really popular both within the country and in the English-speaking world. The reason is that the domain is a pronoun, which can be used for constructing imaginative and appealing domain names – write.it, youcanmake.it and so on. This is a way to create an easy-to-memorize domain name, so that it will be easier for your visitors to come back to your website or to give it with coworkers and acquaintances. The domain extension can also be used for a website, which is linked to the information sector in view of the fact that IT is an abbreviation, which is recognized around the world.
Having in mind that dot IT domains are not offered directly by IT-NIC, the Registry that administrates this top-level domain extension, such a domain can be acquired through a 3rd-party domain registration provider, such as ours. We will manage the registration process for you and take care of submitting your application to the Registry organization. You can get a .IT domain for a 1-year period at a time, and the domains are transferable, so you can move your existing domain over to our firm and we will renew it once the transfer has been finalized. The only restriction is that the person obtaining such a domain has to be situated in a country from the EU.
Due to the fact that there are existing 2nd-level Domains that include names of various areas and localities in Italy reserved for local 3rd-level registrations, new names that include geographical regions of any sort are not allowed on any level to avoid any future confusion. We do not offer such third-level domains, though, given that they can be registered only by locals.

SoftNet Hosting provides an extremely effective domain management tool that is both intuitive and fully featured - the Domain Manager. It comes by default with each new domain name registration and it is the ideal location from where it is possible to manage your .IT domain names. You will have quick access to all the DNS and WHOIS options associated with your domain names. You will be able to set up URL forwarding with just a click and to take full advantage of unlimited domain parking options. The Domain Manager interface also offers multi domain name management options.
If you also have a web hosting account with us, controlling sites and domains at the same time will be more than simple, since the Domain Manager is actually a part of the Web Hosting Control Panel.
