.vg is the Internet country code top-level domain name (ccTLD) for the British overseas territory of the Virgin Isles, found to the east of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean. It is operated by AdamsNames, a company who also run the country code domain names for the Turks and Caicos Islands, and Grenada. Though the .vg domain name is intended for residents of the British Virgin Islands, one does not need to be present in the country in order to register under the .vg domain. There is no limit to the amount of domains a registrant may want.
To register with the .vg domain the following criteria must be met:
- Characters used in the domain must be from the Roman alphabet (a-z).
- The only digits allowed are from 0-9, including the hyphen (-). However, the hyphen may not be used at the beginning or at the end of the domain.
- Due to the International Domain Name's (IDN) punycode, a hyphen may not be placed in the third or fourth place of the domain name chosen.
A license for the specific domain name chosen by the registrant, when accepted by AdamsNames, is given, allowing the registrant to use the domain name for a set amount of time. If the contract is breached, AdamsNames have the right to cancel the license. The rules are as follows:
- The domain name cannot be used to cause confusion with internet users;
- None of the agreements of the Terms & Conditions are to be broken by the applicant;
- The domain name chosen cannot endanger the operation of the Top Level domain;
After the decision to cancel a contract is made, AdamsNames will give the applicant a seven day notice.
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.
