Established in 1987, Italy’s dot IT country-specific 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 building imaginative and appealing domain names – write.it, youcanmake.it and so on. This is a way to have an easy-to-memorize domain name, so that it will be easier for your visitors to return to your website or to give it with colleagues and friends. The extension can also be used for a website, which is related to the technology sector because IT is an abbreviation, which is in use worldwide.
Considering 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 3rd-party domain service provider, such as ours. We will handle the registration process for you and take care of submitting your application to the Registry. You can obtain a .IT domain for a one-year period 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 finished. The sole limitation is that the person purchasing such a domain must be located in a country, which is a member of the EU.
Because there are existing Second-Level Domains that include names of various areas and localities in Italy reserved for local third-level registrations, new names that include 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, due to the fact that they can be registered only by locals.
