.IT Domain Names
Introduced in 1987, Italy’s dot IT country-specific domain name extension is quite popular both within the country and in the English-speaking world. The reason is that the domain is a pronoun, which can be used for constructing inventive and catchy domain names – write.it, youcanmake.it and so on. This is a way to have an easy-to-memorize domain name, so that it will be easier for your visitors to come back to your website or to share it with colleagues and fellows. The domain name extension can also be used for a website, which is related to the technology sector given that IT is an abbreviation, which is well-known all over the world.
Since .IT domains are not sold directly by IT-NIC, the Registry that supervises this top-level domain extension, such a domain can be obtained through a third-party firm, such as ours. We will handle the registration process for you and take care of submitting your application to the Registry. You can buy a dot IT domain for no more than one year at a time, and the domains are transferable, so you can move your existing domain over to us and we will renew it after the transfer has been done. The only requirement is that the person buying such a domain ought to be located in a member state of the European Union.
As there are existing 2nd-level Domains that include names of various territories and localities in Italy reserved for local 3rd-level registrations, new names that consist of geographical areas of any kind are not allowed on any level to avoid any future confusion. We do not offer such third-level domains, though, because they can be registered only by locals.
