.NAME Domains

Introduced in 2001, the Dot NAME domain name extension is the only one supposed to be for personal sites only. These domains can include personal or fictional names, aliases and/or other titles people are known by. At the beginning, solely 3rd-level registrations were allowed, so if you desired to buy john.doe.name, you were supposed to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration procedures were liberalized and 2nd-level registrations were also allowed. Already taken third-level domains remained working.

Through our firm, you can get your dot NAME domain for a period between 1 and 10 years. You will have the opportunity to update the WHOIS details, to park your domain, to set up Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an already registered domain to our company if you take its EPP transfer authorization code from the current registrar firm and we will renew it when the transfer has been done. There are no special rules on who can obtain a dot NAME domain, but in order to keep the idea behind its creation alive, the .NAME Registry organization may verify who the Registrant is and if there is no connection between the owner and the actual domain, the registration could be challenged.

The .NAME domain extension is one of the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no further cost. In this way, your dot NAME domain will be recognized in your country or region with the precise spelling in your native language.
