As a courtesy, we will pre-screen your request to confirm you meet the eligibility and naming requirements for .INSURANCE. Placing an order for a .INSURANCE domain name does not guarantee it will be successfully registered to you. You will be required to complete the verification process (described below) directly with the registry. If registration is unsuccessful, only the registration fee is refundable after your domain registration request is submitted to the registry for verification.


The following businesses or organizations are initially eligible to register domain names in .INSURANCE:

  • (3.2) Licensed insurance agents/agencies, brokers/brokerages or other equivalents (e.g., intermediaries, representatives) regulated by a government authority;
  • (3.3) Associations whose members are primarily comprised of entities or individuals identified above in 3.1 or 3.2;
  • (3.4) Groups of associations whose members are primarily comprised of associations identified above in 3.3;

Holding companies do not meet the eligibility requirements for .INSURANCE. Holding companies may register domain names on behalf of their eligible subsidiaries provided the registrant contact information submitted during the registration process is for the eligible entity. If the registrant contact provided is that of the holding company the verification process will fail.

1) The Registrant first and last name must be a person's name and someone that is currently employed with the applying entity. (It cannot contain the entities name or generic name such as Domain Administrator, etc).
