About .FILM Domain Names

Motion Picture Domain Registry (Motion Picture Domain Registry Pty Ltd) is the sponsor and Neustar is the backend provider for the .FILM extension.

Who can register .FILM domains?

There are two scenarios where an applicant or registrant is eligible to register a .FILM domain name:

  • The applicant or registrant must be a member of an approved association, body or union and closely connected to the domain name.
  • If the domain name is a film title, the applicant or registrant must be a member of an approved association, body or union and hold rights to the exact matching film title.

For a list of approved associations, bodies, and unions, or for more information about eligibility requirements, please see the Eligibility section of the .film registry.

Renewals

If auto-renew is enabled on a .FILM domain, we’ll attempt to auto-renew your .FILM domain on its expiration date. In cases where auto-renew fails after the first billing attempt or auto-renew was not enabled at all, we’ll park your .FILM domain name. A parked domain name will show a temporary web page when entering the domain in a web browser. If the domain isn't manually renewed within 40 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.

Refund Details

For details on refunds, please visit GoDaddy's Refund Policy page. Most domains will follow the STANDARD REFUND TERMS, but certain domains will have exceptions or may not be refundable at all. So also take a look under:

  • PRODUCTS WITH SPECIAL REFUND TERMS > Domain Name Registrations/Renewals
  • PRODUCTS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR REFUNDS
