.is FAQ

What name can I register?

ISNIC reserves the right to reject applications for domains if the conditions for the domain name are not observed or the name does not comply with the traditions and general rules of the Internet.

The .is Registry will not accept the following domain names for registration:

Names that are already registered ("first come, first served" -principle) or that are put on hold. A name is put on hold if:

  • Legal proceedings, whether within or outside the scope of a court of law, are in progress over that name, or
  • The .is Registry has asked the domain name holder to replace his registrar in case the registrars contract with the .is Registry is terminated.

Names will be registered for the person whose application is completed cpr144449003101 first, notwithstanding earlier applications for those names that are not yet complete.

An application is complete when it is received with all the required data by the .is Registry computer system (not when it was sent).

The refusal to register a domain name by the .is Registry does not create any rights (priority rights or other) for the applicant.

The applicant may file a new application, in competition with anybody else, if that name later becomes available to the public.
