.IT Domain Names
Introduced in 1987, Italy’s dot IT country-code top-level extension is quite popular both within the country and in the English-speaking world. The reason is that the domain is a pronoun, which can be used for constructing inventive and appealing domain names – write.it, youcanmake.it and so on. This is a way to construct an easy-to-memorize domain name, so that it will be easier for your visitors to come back to your website or to give it with colleagues and friends. The TLD can also be used for a website, which is connected to the technology sector due to the fact that IT is an abbreviation, which is well-known around the globe.
Considering that .IT domains are not provided directly by IT-NIC, the Registry that administrates this top-level domain name extension, such a domain can be purchased through a third-party domain registration provider, such as ours. We will manage the registration process for you and take care of submitting your application to the Registry organization. You can acquire a .IT domain for a period of one year at a time, and the domains are transferable, so you can move your existing domain over to our company and we will renew it after the transfer has been finalized. The only stipulation is that the person acquiring such a domain is required to be situated in a member state of the European Union.
Due to the fact that there are existing Second-Level Domains that include names of different territories and localities in Italy reserved for local 3rd-level registrations, new names that include geographical regions of any kind are not permitted on any level to avoid any future confusion. We do not support such 3rd-level domains, though, because they can be registered only by locals.
