Registration

 

When the registration has started the domain owner receives a email containing a link to a form that needs to be completed. Only after the form has been completed will the registry start processing the registration request.

For correct inclusion in the zone file, the nameservers must be properly configured. Check this on the registry's website.

Note that for entities based in Italy, the registry will strictly check the 2-letter province code included in the handle. See for the correct naming our separate knowledge base article.

Company number and VAT number (companies) or fiscal code (individuals - Example:GZRJST88A29Y614Q) is required in ALL handles (owner, admin and tech).

It is required that the Office/residence of the registrant is within the EU.

 

Transfer

 

To transfer a .it 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.
Once the transfer has been requested the domain owner receives a email containing a link to a form that needs to be completed. Only after the form has been completed will the registry start processing the transfer request. The current registrar will then have 1 day to object against the transfer. If no objection or approval is given the transfer will complete automatically.

The registry will not send an e-mail to the domain contacts after the transfer finishes.

Note that a registrar is obliged to provide the authorization code to the registrant at all times, without conditions. In no circumstance, a registrar may deny an authorization code request.

The expiration date in the registry whois is updated 15 days after the renewal.
