Starting in January, 2004, ICANN authorized ownership of second level domains
(i.e. johndoe.name). Reserve your name today. You may register ANY available string.
Enter your desired string below to see if it is still available. Do you have a lot of desired names? Try our Bulk Registration Tool.
Now, ANYONE can file a defensive registration for .name. You no longer need to own a registered trademark to protect a string. Owners of Defensive Registrations get to enjoy use of the domain while controlling access by third parties.
The Defensive Registration is accepted ONLY if there is no existing second-level or third-level registrations for the protected string.
Premium: This is one that provides protection against second level domains as well as third level .name registrations.
Standard: Blocks both levels of a .name domain where a company name has two parts (for example coca.cola.name) or a product name (like ibm.thinkpad.name). Does NOT protect against the new second level registrations.
