.bg domain registration↓
After the registration request is received, we will ask you for a business certificate. Based on the data on this certificate, we will create an application form.
It needs to be signed and stamped by someone who is mentioned in the business certificate.
In case that the signer is not mentioned, the application form needs to be notarized.
Additionally a copy of the business certificate is needed (not older than 6 months), stamped by the owner on each page.
The signed application form (to be signed by someone who is mentioned in the business certificate) needs to be sent by postal mail, along with an original, stamped business certificate, to the registry.
In case of registration for private person please note that the .bg registration for a private person is more complicated than for a company.
If the registration should be processed for a private person, the person should either come directly to one of register.bg's offices to sign the documents or if this is not possible, the application form must be public notarized.
Note that those documents need to be at the registry within 45 days, otherwise the registration will time-out and the domain name will be blocked for registration for another 45 days.
Please be advised:
Check handle data careful.
The application form always valid for 30 days.
That means if initially incorrect handle data been used / data used was not confirmed, requester will need to wait for 30 days until previous form expires to get new form for with new data.
