Registration Rules For .PT Liberalised 1 May

In an attempt to make .PT domain names more accessible, the Foundation for National Scientific Computing, has announced changes to registration policies to take place on 1 March. The changes mean anyone can register a domain for the Portuguese ccTLD and registrants will no longer have to be associated with a brand or company.

“This is a goal for which the Foundation has been working long and we finally have the approval of the proposed liberalisation from the General Council. We hope that this liberalisation will result in an increase in the number of people who choose to have a .PT address instead of registering foreign and generic top domains,” said Pedro Veiga, president of the Foundation.

There will also be a “Sunrise” period from 1 March for 60 days to allow public companies, companies, brand names, establishment, logos, copyright and professional names, literary or artistic to register their .PT domain and defend their established rights.

For the .PT registration, the domain only will have to be delegated in the .PT area and be technically associated with a primary name server, correctly installed and configured.
