NB: for registered domain names, their variations with additional ASCII characters are not possible. i.e. if domainname.org.br is registered, domain-name.org.br can't be registered. Such variations can be registered by the original domain owner only.


In order for an organization to be eligible for ORG.BR name registrations, it must prove it is a non-governmental and a not-for-profit organization. Therefore our trustee service can NOT be used. After registration of a .org.br domain it is reserved for two weeks while the registry waits for the documents proving non-profit status.

Registrations are not real-time and can take up to 14 days.

Since the trustee service is NOT available for ORG.BR domain names, the transfer is done by the domain owner himself on registry website. The customer needs to login and select "Toweb Brazil" as the new registrar. Additionally, you should request a transfer in our system, so we know to which account we have to assign the domain as soon as it was transferred by the domain holder.

Authorization code required no
Method of confirmation
Registration period after transfer unchanged
Average transfer time
Advanced and simple transfers available Contact our Sales department to check if easy transfer of 100 or more .org.br domains is available.

The registrant needs to log in and change the registrar ID in the registry’s web interface themselves.

Not real-time.


A .org.br domain can only be deleted by using the NIC.BR online form, which is only available in Portuguese.

Restore / reactivate

Restores are possible up to 60 days after expiration date, please contact support.

Registration agreement The registry requires that a registration agreement is in place between the provider and the domain holder. The text of this registration agreement and any required supplements is the following:

Due to the regular changes in registry rules and configuration or missing information from registry side, and despite our effort to keep our knowledge base up-to-date, information in the knowledge base may be outdated or incorrect. If you encounter some issue, please report it through the "HotJar" feedback collector on the bottom right, or (if it is blocked by your browser) by clicking the "Submit a request" link below.
