    • Where do I enter my .MOSCOW/.МОСКВА Whois Type?

      To set up your .MOSCOW and/or .МОСКВА domain's Whois type, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Click “My Domains”, then “TLD Settings” from the left-side menu bar. Click on the "MOSCOW/МОСКВА Settings" and enter in your .MOSCOW/.МОСКВА Whois type information here. There are different Whois type entry requirements depending on whether you are a legal entity or an individual. Find out more about what you need to enter for your .MOSCOW/.МОСКВА Whois type.

    • Why do I have to enter a "Registrant" for .LT domains?

      The central registry of .LT, domreg.lt, requires that a registrant is set when a domain is registered. This registrant cannot be changed later through the Dynadot control panel. Instead, you have to create a "trade order" to change the registrant. This order costs the same as registering the domain itself. However, it does change the domain expiration to one year from the trade order completion date. To perform a domain trade, first submit the trade request on the .LT registry website. Then, you need to submit an identical trade order from within your Dynadot account by following these instructions: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "Manage" from the "Domains" drop-down menu. Click on the .LT domain you want to change the registrant for (it should be linked). Scroll down to the "LT Trade" section. You need to enter the same new name, organization, and email that you submitted to the .LT registry. Click "Create Trade" when you're done.

    • Why do I have to enter a "Registrant" for .PH domains?

      dotPH, the central registry of .PH requires that a registrant is set when a domain is registered. This registrant cannot be changed later through the Dynadot control panel. Instead, you must fill out a change of ownership form and submit it to dotPH. The modification is currently free, although dotPH may change this in the future. If you want to change the email contact associated with the .PH domain, you will also need to fill out the form.

    • What is the .MOSCOW/.МОСКВА Whois Type?

      The central registry for .MOSCOW and .МОСКВА require additional information when registering a domain. You must enter the following information in the .MOSCOW/.МОСКВА Domain Settings section. If you are a legal entity, you must enter the following information: Full name of a legal entity including an indication to its form of incorporation according to its registration documents; taxpayer identification number (for RF residents) or similar identifier (for non-RF residents); address of a legal entity according to its registration documents; Principal State Registration Number (OGRN) for RF residents, if Registrant intends to use the domain name with a website to be registered as an electronic mass media outlet. If you are an individual, you must enter the following information: Full name, including first, middle, and last names, unless otherwise specified by the personal law or national custom; date of birth; document details, which prove the Registrant's identity, including series, number, date of issue of the document, and the name of the issuing authority; official address.

    • Why do I have to enter a "Registrant" for .UK domains?

      Nominet, the central registry for .UK requires that a "registrant" contact in the UK is set when a domain is registered. This registrant cannot be changed later through your Dynadot account. Instead, you will need to create an account with Nominet using the email address you registered your .UK domain with. From there, you can make changes to the registrant information (there may be a fee). A valid registrant name requires a minimum of 4 characters. If you are registering a .UK domain you have rights to, you will need to enter the same registrant name that you used for your .CO.UK, .ORG.UK, or .ME.UK.

    • Why was my .US domain deleted?

      .US domains are restricted. Neustar, the .US central registry, will delete .US domains that are in violation of their Nexus policies. In order to register a .US domain, you must be a US resident, US company, or a foreign company with a US presence. You will be asked to fill out your "Intended Usage" and "Registrant Type" when you register your .US domain. For a full list of restrictions, please see the "ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR .US REGISTRATIONS" section in our Service Agreement. Additionally, Neustar often deletes domains which contain one of the seven dirty words. Please note that Neustar will not give a refund if your domain is deleted for either violation.

    • Why was my .EU domain deleted?

      EURid, the central registry for .EU will revoke .EU domains if the domain is in violation of their Nexus policies. You must be a natural resident, organization, or have a business within the European Community. For a full list of restrictions, please see the "ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR .EU REGISTRATIONS" section in our Service Agreement.

    • Are there any requirements for .BIO if I am not using it for organic farming or food website?

      No, .BIO does not have any requirements for those who plan to use their .BIO for a personal website, biography website, biology website, or anything else. There are only requirements if you plan to use your .BIO website to represent an organic farm or food.

    • What additional information is required to register .网络œ or .公司¸ domains?

      The central registry for .网络 and .公司, CNNIC, requires either a Chinese Organization Code Certificate Number, Chinese Individual National ID Number, or a copy of your ID or business license.

    • What are the requirements for registering a .NGO/.ONG domain?

      .NGO domains require the registrant to be a valid Non-Governmental Organization or NGO. Below is more information about what that means: The Public Interest Registry (PIR) has worked closely with the global NGO community to develop a validation process for .NGO and .ONG registration. The following seven criteria are used to define an NGO for the purpose of validation: Focused on acting in the public interest: Whether in support of education or health, the environment or human rights, members of the community work for the good of humankind and/or the preservation of the planet and do not promote discrimination or bigotry. Non-profit making/non-profit-focused entities: While many NGOs and ONGs engage in commercial activities or generate revenue in support of their missions, members of the community do not recognize profits or retain earnings. Limited government influence: Recognizing that many NGO and ONG organizations have important interactions with government, not least for reasons of funding (which may include receipt of some government funding in support of their programs) members of the community decide their own policies, direct their own activities and are independent of direct government or political control. Independent actors: Members of the community should not be political parties nor should be a part of any government. Participation in the work of a NGO/ONG is voluntary. Active Organizations: Members of the community are actively pursuing their missions on a regular basis. Structured: Members of the community, whether large or small, operate in a structured manner (e.g., under bylaws, codes of conduct, organizational standards, or other governance structures.) Lawful: Members of the .NGO and .ONG community act with integrity within the bounds of law. Please note that "members of the community" above refers to members of the .NGO and .ONG community. NGOs and ONGs participating as members in this community must certify that they adhere to the above Eligibility Criteria. To view the full requirements, please visit this site. *PIR has determined that organizations formed under the laws of the People’s Republic of China (or any territory thereof) do not meet the criteria "Limited Government Influence" and "Independent Actors." Accordingly, prospective registrants from China and its territories should not register .ngo and .ong bundles as they will not meet PIR's Eligibility Requirements. In the event PIR discovers that a .ngo and .ong bundle is registered by an organization organized under the laws of the People’s Republic of China (or any territory thereof), PIR will delete the registration bundle for failing to meet our Eligibility Requirements.
