What name can I register?

A restricted domain is one of these : any country code, gov net edu ac com co int mil gouv or any other name related to government or public company use. Contact if you want to create such a domain. Note however that it will be assigned only if sponsored by an official authority. We also discourage generic names such as bank nom art ... or a geographic notion as it also misleads people.

An undesirable name is defined as being vulgar, offensive, misleading people or inappropriate.It also includes domains used for fraudulent or criminal activity, and for phishing and spamming, and is used for creating dysfunctions on the internet. It is also applicable for domain registration of wellknown brands/trademarks registered by third parties without the consent of the owner of the brands/trademark. The domain will be deleted immediately at the owner's request.

There is no notion of property as far as a domain name is concerned. It is rather to be seen as a sub-delegation, and the sub-delegated entity is supposed to manage it in compliance with the RFC's and with cpr144449003101 the usual rules applicable to such a sub-delegation. Reselling of the domain is a matter that NIC does not handle. It is an agreement between the seller and the buyer, and we only provide tools for changing admin/tech contact whois.
