Re: Adding a dot in domain name

Hey!

Simple answer is: No.

 

If you owned blow.com -- You could make a subdomain and have the name Joe.Blow.com

Domain names may be formed from the set of alphanumeric ASCII characters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9), but characters are case-insensitive. In addition the hyphen is permitted if it is surrounded by characters, digits or hyphens, although it is not to start or end a label.

Re: Adding a dot in domain name

Using the same example Blow.com, could I make a subdomain Bl.ow.com?

 

I'm trying to get to Blow2.0.com and didn't know if I registered Blow20.com if it would work.

Re: Adding a dot in domain name

Hi @Dot-Com.

No, you cannot break up a domain name by adding a dot in it, you can only add characters in front of the domain name you own.

In your example, you would need to own the domain name 0. com.
