Once the domain is registered
All Danish 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 Danish 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 Danish domain name registrar.
Very popular in Denmark
The ccTLD for Denmark, an abbreviation for Internet Country Code Top-Level Domain, is .dk. It is managed by the DK-Hostmaster who, though there are no restrictions, need to approve the domain name registered for. If a Name Server needs to be tested, 500 Danish Krona plus VAT will be charged. This can be important seeing as if there is no approved or functioning name servers attached to the domain name, it may be deleted by the Danish Registry. They must be set up in advance and approved.
Once registered, an e-mail will be sent which will tell of the instructions on how to activate the domain name. There are Three Months from the date of registration in which you can activate the domain name, but if you wait over this time it will be deleted by the Danish Registry. You can register directly under .dk and the domain names are available under a 'first come, first served' basis. They can be registered from 1-3 years, or 5 years.
From 2007, a new rule was applied to domain names which are registered through DK Hostmaster. This was a suspension rule and is for the event of typo squatting. This refers to when a domain name is registered with an error, perhaps when a character or two is changed. If the domain name is familiar and already existing, it won't be allowed.
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.
The supervision of the .dk top-level domain, is handled exclusively by DK Hostmaster.
Any new .dk domain name has to be applied for via an approved registrator. Then the domain name applicant can ask the registrator to manage his domain name or do it directly with DK Hostmaster.
