Established in 1987, Italy’s dot IT country-specific domain 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-memorize domain name, so that it will be easier for your visitors to return to your website or to give it with associates and friends. The domain extension can also be used for a website, which is connected to the technology sector taking into account that IT is an abbreviation, which is well-known all over the globe.
Having in mind that dot IT domains are not provided directly by IT-NIC, the Registry organization that manages this top-level domain name extension, such a domain can be bought through a 3rd-party domain service provider, such as ours. We will handle the registration process for you and take care of submitting your application to the Registry. You can acquire a dot IT domain for a period of 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 the moment the transfer has been completed. The only prerequisite is that the person purchasing such a domain must be located in a member state of the European Union.
Since there are existing 2nd-level Domains that include names of different regions and localities in Italy reserved for local third-level registrations, new names that consist of geographical areas of any kind are not permitted on any level to avoid any future confusion. We do not offer such third-level domains, though, since they can be registered only by locals.
