.IT Domain Names
Introduced in 1987, Italy’s .IT country-specific domain is very 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 attractive domain names – write.it, youcanmake.it and so on. This is a way to have an easy-to-remember domain name, so that it will be easier for your visitors to go back to your website or to share it with coworkers and pals. The domain extension can also be used for a website, which is linked to the technology sector taking into account that IT is an abbreviation, which is well-known worldwide.
Considering that dot IT domains are not registered directly by IT-NIC, the Registry organization that administrates this top-level domain extension, such a domain can be registered through a third-party company, such as ours. We will manage the registration process for you and take care of submitting your application to the Registry organization. You can purchase 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 us and we will renew it when the transfer has been done. The only stipulation 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 territories and localities in Italy reserved for local third-level registrations, new names that include geographical areas of any kind are not permitted on any level to avoid any future confusion. We do not support such 3rd-level domains, though, since they can be registered only by locals.
