Introduced in 1987, Italy’s .IT country-specific top-level extension is very popular both locally and in the English-speaking world. The reason is that the domain is a pronoun, which can be used for forming creative and catchy 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 coworkers and friends. The TLD can also be used for a website, which is related to the information technology sector given the fact that IT is an abbreviation, which is known all over the world.
Given that .IT domains are not sold directly by IT-NIC, the Registry organization that administrates this domain extension, such a domain can be registered 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. You can buy a .IT domain for no more than one year at a time, and the domains are transferable, so you can move your existing domain over to us and we will renew it the minute the transfer has been finished. The sole condition is that the person obtaining such a domain must be situated in a country, which is a member of the European Union.
Due to the fact that there are existing 2nd-level Domains that include names of different areas and localities in Italy reserved for local third-level registrations, new names that consist of geographical regions of any kind are not permitted on any level to avoid any future confusion. We do not offer such 3rd-level domains, though, since they can be registered only by locals.
