The following is a list of rules of each registry. Please note that this list may not be a complete list and that each registry may adopt additional rules from time to time. Domain Names have a variety of basic rules:

GENERAL EXTENSIONS

.COM, .NET and .ORG Domain Names
     .COM - to be used for commercial and personal sites
     .NET - recommended for companies involved in Internet infrastructure
     .ORG - recommended for not-for-profit organizations
Use only letters, numbers, or hyphen ("-")
Cannot begin or end with a hyphen
Must have less than 63* characters, not including .COM, .NET and .ORG
Domain names exceeding a total of 26 characters are supported by most web browsers. However, certain web browsers, email programs and other Internet related applications may not support domain names over 26 characters.

.INFO Domain Names:
     .INFO - to be used for both commercial and personal sites
Use only letters, numbers, or hyphen ("-")
Cannot begin or end with a hyphen
Must have at least 3 characters and less than 63 characters, not including .INFO

.BIZ Domain Names:
     .BIZ - sites restricted to commercial and bona fide business purposes
Use only letters, numbers, or hyphen ("-")
Cannot begin or end with a hyphen
Cannot have two hyphens in a row
Must have at least 3 characters and less than 63 characters, not including .BIZ

.NAME Domain Names:
     .NAME - to be used for personal sites
Must be composed of a first and last name (yourname1.yourname2.name)
First name (yourname1 in above example) must have at least 1 character and no more than 63 characters
Second name (yourname2 in above example) must have at least 3 characters and no more than 63 characters
Use only letters, numbers or hyphen ("-")
Cannot begin or end with a hyphen
Note** Not available for new registration

QUESTION: I just registered a new domain name. How long until I can use it?
ANSWER: New domains and changes to domains may take up to 4-8 hours for .COM and .NET domains and about 24-48 hours for all other domain extensions to become effective. This is due to the number of networks involved, and the fact that those networks are controlled by several different agencies. This delay applies to all domains and all Registrars. Please allow for this delay when planning Web sites or configuring a domain to work with your email.

QUESTION: What do I do with my domain once it's been registered?
ANSWER: When your registration is complete, you have a few options on how to put your domain name to use. Do you have a Web site already designed for your new domain name? If your Web site is complete, follow these instructions to get your site on the Internet.

  • Acquire a hosting account.
  • Modify your domain name servers (DNS) to the addresses provided by your hosting provider.
  • Upload your Web site to the Internet
