This was posted : 28/4/08

On May 1, Brazil is introducing a new rule to its namespace. From next Thursday, individuals with a local contact will be authorized to register .COM.BR domains. br.jpeg

The local presence requirement means that for the time being, only Brazilians will be able to grab .COM.BR domains. Local registry RegistroBR has indicated that these new .COM.BR registration requests will undergo the same validation procedure as existing requests.

This means that applicants will have to send an identity certificate (CPF). Local companies and organizations are already required to send proof of registration along with their domain name request.

They have until May 1st to secure their domains and protect them before individuals become eligible to register them.
