Established in 2001, the .NAME top-level extension is the single TLD meant for personal websites only. These domains can include personal or fictitious names, nicknames and/or other titles people are popular by. Initially, only 3rd-level registrations were allowed, so if you wished to purchase john.doe.name, you were required to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration procedures were liberalized and second-level registrations were also allowed. Already grabbed third-level domains remained online.
Through our firm, you can acquire your dot NAME domain for an interval between 1 and 10 years. You will have the opportunity to modify the WHOIS details, to park your domain, to set up Custom DNS records, etc. You can also transfer an already purchased domain to our firm if you receive its EPP transfer authorization key from the present domain provider and we will renew it after the transfer has been finalized. There are no particular stipulations on who can acquire a .NAME domain name, but in order to keep the idea behind its creation alive, the .NAME Registry may verify who the Registrant is and if there is no relation between the owner and the actual domain, the registration might be challenged.
The .NAME generic top-level domain extension is among the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no extra cost. In this way, your dot NAME domain will be recognized in your country or area with the right spelling in your local language.
