You can register a .gr via your control panel.

Within 5 hours, the request will be activated in the database of the registry and the domain can be used.
However the status of the domain will stay "requested" for 6 days, while the registry will do a first investigation. After 6 days, the domain will be updated to status Active.

During the first 4-8 weeks of the registration the registry will investigate the registration. If anything is found that breaks the rules and conditions of .gr domains it will be cancelled.

Registrant handle must include the company type if the registrant is a company. For example: 'BV', 'Ltd.', 'GmbH'.




To transfer a .gr domain name please make sure to first get the authorisation code from the current registrar. Using this code you can request the transfer through our website.
The transfer will complete within a day and the domain name will be available in your account immediately upon completion.

Trade (owner change)

The official registry (EETT) examines the application within a period of 4 - 8 weeks from its submission by the registrar to the Registry and proceeds to either accept or reject the request.




A change of contactdetails can be done by updating the associated handles in the control panel. After saving the changes the domainname will be updated realtime.




A delete is realtime. After a delete the domain will be available for registration by a new registrar.


Restore (reactivation)
