International domain registration and IP protection
 
.name Domain Registration - .name is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) intended for the use of individuals' real names, nicknames, screen names, pseudonyms or other personal names. Domains can be registered on the second level (john.name) and the third level (john.doe.name). When a domain is registered on the third level (john.doe.name), the second level (doe.name in this case) is shared, and may not be registered. When the .name domain was first launched, only third level registrations (and forwarded e-mail addresses) were available; it was only later, in January 2004, that second level registrations were made available as well. When a domain is registered on the second level (doe.name), third level domains or e-mail addresses under this second level (john.doe.name and jane@doe.name) are associated with the second level domain, and may not be registered with the .name registry. The .name gTLD is intended for use by individuals and personalities, both fictional and real.. As a personal, unique and memorable identifier, .name addresses are increasingly being used as a natural address for Digital Identity applications.. The .name whois service is available at whois.nic.name, and there is a website where whois queries can be made at the .name whois website. The administrative and technical contacts for .name are the founders Hakon Haugnes and Geir Rasmussen..

1. IDN (Internationalized Domain Names) Capable domain names can contain non ASCII characters that are used in languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Russian and Spanish. That is characters in addition to: a-z, 0-9 or "-".
2. Only when a domain name has exceeded its renewal date by 1 year - without being renewed - will it then be deleted.
3. An extra level of security is added to inter-registrar transfers; where telephone calls and physical proof of identification are required to verify the transfer.
4. If your domain name is accidentally deleted or cancelled (due to non-renewal) we can will automatically attempt to re-register it for you.
5. The Grace Period is a specified number of calendar days (typically 5 days) foll owing the registration of a domain name when the operation may be reversed.
6. The Autorenew Grace Period is a specified number of calendar days following the automatic renewal of a domain name when the operation may be reversed. If this number is negative the domain name must be renewed before expiry.
7. A transfer away from us will not be allowed, during the Transfer Prohibit Period, this is x days after either the initial registration or a transfer to us.
8. Redemption period. After the domain name has been deleted at the registry it remains recoverable by the original registrar for a fixed time before it is deleted proper. This is the redemption period.
9. Redemption Fee. If the domain name has been deleted by the registrar and not deleted by the registry, it may be possible to recover the domain name for a fee. Typically this is considerably more than the original registration costs as registries typically charge a premium for this service.
