It is almost impossible to register .bt domains, due to problems at the side of the registry.

We are very happy to help you when you have a request, but we can not guarantee that the domain gets registered due to problems at the registry.

Please send an email to support if you would like to register a .bt


- Domeindetails: Domainname, all handles and nameservers.

- registration form (provided by us after you send the email)
- business certificate (in english)
- Writing from the owner, that we are authorized to register the domain for them
- Indicate the VAT number in the owner handle




For the transfer of a .bt domain name, we need a written confirmation where the owner of the domain declares his wish to transfer the domain.

Also the old registrar must declare his acknowledge of the transfer in this document.

The document must be signed by both the registrant and the old registrar and must be sent by e-mail. We will forward it then to NIC.BT and they will transfer the domain.
