Frequently asked questions

What is a TLD (Top Level Domain)?        

top level domain, or 'TLD' as it is better known, is that part of the web address that comes after the right of the dot. .Com, .Net, .Org, and now .Krd are examples of TLDs.        


What is a registrar?        

A Registrar is a company that takes registrations for second level domain names. Key-Systems, GoDaddy, Network Solutions, eNom, 1&1, and Tucows are examples of ICANN accredited registrars. A second level domain name is the name that is located to the left of the dot. Registrars also offer other value added services such as web hosting, email, website development, and auction services that give life and functionality to domain names.
       

What is a registry?        

A Registry is the company that controls and operates a TLD. They offer second level domain registrations to Registrars, typically at a 'wholesale' price. Registrars in turn make available those second level domain registrations to end users who are referred to as the domain name registrants.        

When can I register a .Krd domain name?        

Starting from Oct. 7 2015 (end of Sunrise) .KRD will start its limited registration period in which we will be ready to accept registrations in a limited manner.  More information LRP and procedures will be published in September 2015.
       

Where can I register a .krd domain name?        

In principal and inline with ICANN's guidelines, a .KRD domain can be registered through any ICANN accredited registrars or their resellers. For the Limited Registration Period (LRP), Key-Systems GmbH (a leading name in domain industry based in Germany) was the first ICANN accredited registrar with an agreement with us to channel the domain registration to end users.
