Established in 1987, Italy’s dot IT country-specific extension is very popular both locally and in the English-speaking world. The reason is that the domain is a pronoun, which can be used for constructing creative and catchy domain names – write.it, youcanmake.it and so on. This is a way to construct an easy-to-remember domain name, so that it will be easier for your visitors to return to your website or to share it with colleagues and friends. The TLD can also be used for a website, which is connected to the information technology sector given the fact that IT is an abbreviation, which is used all over the world.
Taking into account that .IT domains are not registered directly by IT-NIC, the Registry organization that administrates this top-level domain name extension, such a domain can be registered through a third-party domain registration provider, such as ours. We will handle the registration process for you and take care of submitting your application to the Registry. You can book a dot IT domain for no more than 1 year at a time, and the domains are transferable, so you can move your existing domain over to our company and we will renew it as soon as the transfer has been finalized. The only restriction is that the person reserving such a domain must be situated in a member state of the European Union.
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 include geographical areas of any sort 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.
