.IT Domain Names
Introduced in 1987, Italy’s dot IT country-code domain name extension is really 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 creative and interesting domain names – write.it, youcanmake.it and so on. This is a way to create an easy-to-remember domain name, so that it will be easier for your visitors to go back to your website or to give it with associates and friends. The domain name extension can also be used for a website, which is connected to the information sector taking into account that IT is an abbreviation, which is accepted worldwide.
Having in mind that dot IT domains are not sold directly by IT-NIC, the Registry that administrates this domain extension, such a domain can be obtained through a 3rd-party domain registration provider, such as ours. We will manage the registration process for you and take care of submitting your application to the Registry. You can register a dot IT domain for 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 the minute the transfer has been completed. The only stipulation is that the person acquiring such a domain is required to be located in a country from the EU.
Because there are existing Second-Level Domains that include names of different territories and localities in Italy reserved for local third-level registrations, new names that consist of geographical regions of any sort are not permitted on any level to avoid any future confusion. We do not support such third-level domains, though, due to the fact that they can be registered only by locals.
