.name FAQ

Who can register a .name domain?
.Name is designed exclusively for individuals. Any person can register a .name domain.

Are there any restrictions?
A .name can be:

  • your personal name.
  • the name of a fictional character for which you hold the trademark or service mark.
  • your personal name with additional characters (for example, john2002.doe.name).

A .name must:

  • be composed of a first and last name.
  • have at least 1 character and no more than 63 characters in the first name.
  • have at least 3 characters and no more than 63 characters in the second name.
  • use only letters, numbers or hyphen ("-") Please Note: domains cannot begin or end with a hyphen.

What will my web address look like?
The hypothetical Jennifer Smith could register some variation of her name and use it as her e-mail and web address.

Domain NameE-mailWeb Address

Note: You must have at least three letters in the second part of your domain name. For example, Jennifer.S.name is not a valid domain name while J.Smith.name is valid.

I already have an e-mail account. Can I use my new domain name as an e-mail address?
You may have e-mail sent to your .name e-mail account forwarded to your existing e-mail account. For example, all messages sent to Jennifer@smith.name would be forwarded to jennifersmail@someisp.com. Please note that you must select the .name e-mail option from the domain order form.

If I order the $15 domain, do I still receive e-mail?
Yes. You receive our standard e-mail (and forwarding) with your $15 .name domain. In the case of Jennifer.smith, her e-mail would take the form of abc@jennifer.smith.name or Jennifer@jennifer.smith.name.

What's the difference between the alltimedomains e-mail and the .name e-mail service?
For $15, you receive an e-mail such as info@jennifer.smith.name. For an extra $10, you receive a more direct and useful ".name e-mail" that takes this form: jennifer@smith.name. As well, the .name e-mail comes with spam filters.

How do I change the e-mail forwarding recipient for my .name e-mail address?
Login to the account manager, select additional services, followed by e-mail forwarding and mail control panel to re-direct mail sent to your .name address to an existing e-mail account.

How long can I register my .name domain for?
A .name domain may be registered for a minimum of one and a maximum of two years.

What are the registration fees?
A successfully registered .name domain costs $25 per year for the domain including the .name e-mail. You may also buy a domain name without the .name e-mail for $15 USD.

What additional services do I get with my .name domain registration?
If your domain is successfully registered, you'll receive a free web page, free e-mail forwarding, free domain forwarding, and DNS customization.

Who operates the .name registry?
The .name registry is operated by the Global Name Registry. It is located at http://www.gnr.com
