Once the domain is registered

All Cypriot domain names registered with us are stored on our international server. Domains registered with us are automatically provided with their own under-construction page - this notifies potential registrants that the name has been acquired and is now registered. The under-construction page is offered free of charge and may be used indefinitely.

It is possible for Web and/or Mail forwarding to be provided for Cypriot domains.

Domain transfer/release fees are charged are by a majority of registrars, but BB Online make no charge to transfer a domain to another Cypriot domain name registrar.

Background

Very popular in Cyprus

The ccTLD for the country of Cyprus is .cy and it is managed by the University of Cyprus, a non-profit making organisation. This means that its liability is limited so that it can still provide services for the whole Internet community. The domain name is only to be used by residents within Cyrus and those registering must be at least 18 years of age. If wanting a domain name to be linked with a company, the office of this company must be registered in Cyprus. .cy is limited to 1 domain name per individual and 10 per company (unless a valid reason for more can be given).

There are several secondary domains which can be placed under .cy, each restricted to particular areas:

To keep these sub-domains to their specific roles, there are checks to make sure you are allowed to register for a particular domain. To register a .com.cy, you must be prepared to provide a copy of a form of identification. For all other sub domains, you will have to show proof that you are allowed to register to these restricted domains.

There are certain rules which must be followed if you wish to register for a .cy domain name. These are as follows:

The domain naming criteria is:

 

Important Note:
Some domain names may be classified by the registry as a premium domain name and will command a higher price. If you request a premium domain name we will contact you before completing your order.

In addition, the registry may at any time reserve domain names from registration or the sale may be restricted to comply with ICANN requirements.

.cy is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Republic of Cyprus. (This ccTLD does not cover the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which uses the ccSLD of .nc.tr).

Registration is limited to residents of Cyprus or companies and organizations registered with the government there; the personal or business registration number is required on registration. Some additional restrictions exist for various subdomains, but .com.cy is unrestricted to Cypriot entities.
