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

We'll attempt to auto-renew your .film domain on its expiration date. We'll park .film domain names after the first failed billing attempt. If the domain isn't renewed within 40 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.

Nameserver requirements

One nameserver is required for .film domains to resolve, and a maximum of 13 nameservers is allowed. DNSSEC, IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.

Refund details

For details on refunds, please visit GoDaddy's Refund Policy page. Most domains will follow the Standard Terms, but certain domains will have exceptions or may not be refundable at all. Look under BOTH of the following categories:

  • Products with Special Refund Terms (look under Domain Name Registrations/Renewals)
  • Products Not Eligible for Refunds
