About .it domains

Register.it is the sponsor and Hexonet aka 1 Api GmbH is our backend provider for the country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) .it extension that represents Italy.

Who can register .it domains?

Individual and juridical persons residing in or belonging to a European Union Member State can register .it domain names. All others can use our trustee service to register a .it domain.

Registration restrictions

When registering a .it domain, you must follow specific requirements.

  • Must use: 2 - 63 Characters
  • Can use: Letters (a-z characters), numbers (0-9) and hyphens (except in the 1st or last characters of the domain name)
  • Cannot use: Special characters (e.g., & and #)
  • IDNs: Not supported

Features

  • Registration length: 1 year
  • Renewal length: 1 year
    • You can renew your .it domain name within 60 days of its expiration date. You must, however, renew it before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether you auto-renew or manually renew the domain name. We attempt auto-renewal on the first day of the month prior to the domain name's expiration date.
    • If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal on the 10th of the month and again on the 20th of the month. If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 20th of the month prior to the expiration date, you can attempt to recover it, and there might be a fee to do so.
    • For example: Your .it domain name expires on October 10. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by September 20. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on September 1, September 10, and September 20.
