The .NAVY extension has entered the General Availability phase, therefore now it is possible to order/apply for domain names within the: .NAVY extension/suffix. Please contact our support via e-mail or use the contact form in order to buy .NAVY domains.
The .NAVY domain aims specifically at navy-related websites, such as those dedicated to naval veterans, currently serving personnel, family members or support communities and organisations. It is a well defined extension that provides a unique platform for any group, business, individual or organisation that is associated with the term 'navy'.
Additional requirements for the .NAVY domain include:
1. No Misrepresentation of Affiliation with Military: Registrant must make sure that there is no misrepresentation or false implication of the Registrant's or its business's affiliation with, sponsoring or endorsement by one or more country's or government's military entities if such affiliation, sponsorship or endorsement does not exist.
2. .NAVY (and .AIRFORCE) is prohibited in Australia: According to Australian Defence Regulation 1957, No. 16, individuals and businesses, who are subject to Australian law, are not allowed to use the terms “Navy” (and “Air Force”) in respect to a trade or business.
.NAVY is a new generic Top-Level Domain (Business Niche gTLD) announced by ICANN, the Internet domain authority. The New gTLD Program`s goal is to enhance competition, innovation, and consumer choice. You can see it as your opportunity to get that perfect domain which has been taken by someone else. The introduction of .NAVY domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .NAVY domain will become public and registrations will be available to everyone (General availability).
If you are not a brand owner, before General availability you are allowed to take part only in the first phase and pre-register your desired domain names within .NAVY. The use of our gTLD pre-registration module is free of charge and without any obligation to buy later on. We will keep you updated on future developments related to your preregistered domains, including information about pricing and regulations, once these have been announced by the registry responsible for a given gTLD. Please note that pre-registration of .NAVY is not a queue. Although we will try our best, we cannot provide any kind of guarantee that pre-registration will eventually lead to successful registration of your chosen domain within the .NAVY extension.
If you wish to secure your rights to a specific domain name, please choose our Managed TMCH Submission service which offers trademark owners a simple yet efficient way to monitor and protect their brands. It is also the only way by which trademark owners can participate in designated Sunrise periods.
For non-trademark holders Pre-registration of .NAVY will be available until General availability.
.NAVY is a perfect extension for websites dedicated to maritime community. It is a definitive domain that can be used by navy personnel, both on active duty and veterans, navigational and educational sites, navy-related business and organisations as well as individuals and communities. The .NAVY domain provides a meaningful alternative for .com's and net's or country code domains, and creates a special platform the navy-oriented Internet users to connect online.
