Are there any technical restrictions or conditions to register a domain name?
Yes indeed, there are some restrictions when you choose your domain name. Below, we list the most frequently occurring. Please note that these restrictions can vary depending on the domain extension.
- Only letters (a-z), numbers (0-9) and hyphens (-) are allowed.
- A domain name cannot start or end with a hyphen "-".
- A domain name has to contain at least two (2) characters and no more than sixty three (63) characters.
- You cannot have a number on the first or second place and nor a hyphen ("-") on the third or fourth.
- Specific restrictions can be possible per domain extension, e.g.: the obligation to own an address in the country that is owner of the domain extension. Please contact us when this is the case.
