Started in 2001, the Dot NAME universal domain extension is the only one supposed to be for personal sites only. These domains can include personal or fictional names, nicknames and/or other labels people are popular by. At the beginning, solely third-level registrations were permitted, so if you wanted to buy john.doe.name, you had to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration process was liberalized and second-level registrations were also permitted. Already taken third-level names remained active.
Through our firm, you can purchase your dot NAME domain for a period between 1 and 10 years. You will be able to edit the WHOIS contact 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 authorization key from the present registrar firm and we will renew it once the transfer has been completed. There are no specific conditions on who can get a dot NAME domain, but in order to maintain the concept behind its establishment alive, the .NAME Registry organization may verify who the owner is and if there is no relation between the owner and the actual domain, the registration could be challenged.
The dot NAME 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 additional cost. In this way, your .NAME domain will be recognized in your country or area with the precise spelling in your native language.
