Dot NAME Domain Names

Started in 2001, the Dot NAME generic top-level domain extension is the sole TLD planned for personal websites only. These domain names can be personal or fictional names, nicknames and/or other designations people are popular by. At the beginning, solely third-level registrations were allowed, so if you wanted to reserve, you were required to do that under In 2004, however, the registration procedures were loosened and second-level registrations were also allowed. Already bought third-level domain names remained working.

Through our company, you can get your .NAME domain for a period between one and ten years. You will have the opportunity to update the WHOIS information, to park your domain, to modify Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an already purchased domain to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from the current registration provider and we will renew it after the transfer has been done. There are no specific requirements on who can book a .NAME domain, but in order to maintain the idea behind its establishment alive, the dot NAME Registry may check who the Registrant is and if there is no link between the owner and the actual domain, the registration could be challenged.

The dot NAME universal TLD 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 region with the right spelling in your local language.
