Why do I have to enter a "Registrant Type" when registering a .US domain?


.US domains are restricted. The central registry for .US requires registrants to fill out their "Intended Usage" and "Registrant Type" upon registration.

When it comes to entering your "Registrant Type," registrants of .US domain names must be either:

  • A natural person (i) who is a United States citizen, (ii) who is a permanent resident of the United States of America or any of its possessions or territories, or (iii) whose primary place of domicile is in the United States of America or any of its possessions.
  • A United States entity or organization that is (i) incorporated within one of the fifty (50) U.S. states, the District of Columbia, or any of the United States possessions or territories, or (ii) organized or otherwise constituted under the laws of a state of the United States of America, the District of Columbia or any of its possessions or territories (including a federal, state, or local government of the United States or a political subdivision thereof, and non-commercial organizations based in the United States).
  • A foreign entity or organization that has a bona fide presence in the United States of America or any of its possessions or territories.

Once you have entered these settings and successfully registered a .US domain, you will not be asked to fill them out with additional .US registrations. If you need to update your settings, you can change your .US Nexus settings from within your Dynadot account.

Please note that the .US central registry will delete .US domains that are in violation of their Nexus policies.
