This article describes the procedures and requirements of .com.br domain names.
Click on the subject below to open the dropdown for more information.

  • Trustee service applied automatically, if domain owner contact isn't located in Brazil

Successful domain registration via RCP or API requires:

  • If domain is being registered without trustee service:
    • Valid CPF number (Social security number) for private owner contact
    • Valid CNPJ number (VAT number) for company owner contact
    • Valid Brazillian address in domain's billing contact required
  • Preconfigured DNS zone with at least 1 valid A-record. Zone can be verified via registry's DNS checker

 

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

*Update*

Currently .com.br incoming and/or outgoing transfers and trade might not be possible when a local presence is needed, due to the spread of COVID-19 pandemic. Our local presence office is closed on government rules. 



Process:

  • Domain owner completes a transfer application form
    • Completed form must be signed by domain owner and notarized
  • Domain owner sends the form to NIC.BR postal address stated in the document
  • Once form is received by the registry, NIC.BR contacts domain owner to complete the process

 

NB: Our local presence address can be used for a form completion:

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registry side, and despite our effort to keep our knowledge base up-to-date, information in the knowledge base may be outdated or incorrect.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.
