Dot NAME Domain Names

Established in 2001, the .NAME generic domain extension is the sole TLD meant for personal sites only. These domains can be personal or fictional names, nicknames and/or other designations people are popular by. Initially, solely 3rd-level registrations were allowed, so if you wanted to obtain, you were supposed to do that under In 2004, however, the registration process was liberalized and 2nd-level registrations were also allowed. Already purchased third-level domains remained functional.

Through our company, you can reserve your .NAME domain for a time interval between 1 and 10 years. You will be able to edit the WHOIS information, to park your domain, to set up Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an already purchased domain to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from the current domain registrar and we will renew it once the transfer has been done. There are no special restrictions on who can buy a .NAME domain name, but in order to keep the idea behind its establishment alive, the Registry may check who the owner is and if there is no connection between the owner and the actual domain, the registration could be challenged.

The dot NAME top-level domain name extension is one of 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 region with the exact spelling in your local language.
