Introduced in 1987, Italy’s dot IT country-code top-level extension is really 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 forming creative and attractive domain names – write.it, youcanmake.it and so on. This is a way to construct an easy-to-memorize domain name, so that it will be easier for your visitors to come back to your website or to give it with associates and acquaintances. The TLD can also be used for a website, which is connected to the information technology sector taking into account that IT is an abbreviation, which is recognized all over the world.
In view of the fact that dot IT domains are not offered directly by IT-NIC, the Registry organization that administers this top-level domain extension, such a domain can be bought through a third-party provider, such as ours. We will handle the registration process for you and take care of submitting your application to the Registry organization. You can order a dot IT domain for no more than 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 as soon as the transfer has been finalized. The only requirement is that the person purchasing such a domain must be situated in a member state of the EU.
Because there are existing Second-Level Domains that include names of different territories and localities in Italy reserved for local third-level registrations, new names that consist of geographical regions of any kind are not allowed on any level to avoid any future confusion. We do not offer such third-level domains, though, as they can be registered only by locals.
