.NAME Domain Names
Started in 2001, the Dot NAME universal extension is the sole TLD supposed to be for personal sites only. These domains can include personal or fictional names, aliases and/or other labels people are known by. At first, just 3rd-level registrations were possible, so if you planned to acquire john.doe.name, you were required to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration process was liberalized and 2nd-level registrations were also allowed. Already bought 3rd-level names remained active.
Through our company, you can get your dot NAME domain for an interval between 1 and 10 years. You will be able to alter the WHOIS details, to park your domain, to modify Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an active domain to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from the present registrar company and we will renew it after the transfer has been finalized. There are no specific conditions on who can purchase a .NAME domain, but in order to maintain the idea behind its creation alive, the Registry may check who the owner is and if there is no link between the owner and the actual domain, the registration can be challenged.
The .NAME domain name extension is one of the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no added cost. In this way, your .NAME domain will be recognized in your country or area with the exact spelling in your local language.
