Registering .it Domain Names
You can register .it domain names if your country of origin is Italy, if you are a member of the European Union, or if you use a trustee service (which we provide upon registration).
The .it country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) is an extension that represents Italy. For companies that conduct business in Italy and individuals who want to reach the growing number of Internet users there, .it domain names are a good investment. Registering a .it domain name gives you regional recognition and an easy-to-manage Web presence.
You can register a domain name that contains letters (a-z), numbers (0-9), and the hyphen (-). The domain name cannot begin or end with a hyphen, and it cannot begin with "xn--". The domain name length must be between three and 63 characters in length.

To Register .it Domain Names
- On our Home page, in the Domain Name Search field, enter the domain name.
- Select .it from the list.
- Click Go, and then proceed through the screens to complete the purchase.
- If your country of origin is Italy, you must enter the Registrant Fiscal Code.
- If your country is within the European Union, you must enter the Identity Document Number, or the numerals that display on an official form of identification.
- If you do not meet the residency requirements, we automatically charge you a trustee vendor fee of $19.99 per year. The trustee helps you meet the residency requirement and is a third-party vendor. If someone contacts the trustee with an issue regarding your domain name, the trustee contacts us, and then we contact you.
NOTE: When a trustee service is used for a .it domain registration, the trustee service will review the registration request within 24 hours of purchase. They do this to prevent trademark infringement and reduce the number of disputes or legal issues.
If the registration request is approved, the domain name will complete registration, but if the registration request is denied, the domain name will not be registered and all registration fees will be refunded.
