Once the domain is registered
All Palau 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 Palau 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 Palau domain name registrar.
Marketed for personal e-mail addresses
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.
.pw has been opened for personal registrations under a similar structure to that which .name had at its original launch, in which people can obtain third level registrations of the form john.smith.pw along with the corresponding e-mail address of email@example.com. Second-level domain registrations are not permitted, so that the registry can reserve all second-level names for use in constructing these addresses. Trademark owners have the possibility to apply for a defensive registration that will prevent anybody else from registering a third-level domain that contains that trademark.
The personal e-mail offered in .pw has the feature of spam-prevention through the use of whitelisting; senders must be authorized before their messages can get through.
Through a DNS wildcard record, most second-level names in .pw go to a page offering registration of addresses within that name. Attempts to access any unregistered third-level domain similarly return a page offering registration of that specific address; for instance the website "satan.evil.pw" would return an advert claiming "it can be used for anything: the evil surname, the evil family, the evil fan club, the evil alumni group, evil genealogy, or any other community or group about evil."The traditional registry address of nic.pw goes to one of these wildcard pages; the actual official registry site is at pwregistry.pw.
