New registration conditions coming for .com.tr, .net.tr, and .org.tr
Update, September, 2022: the new eligibility rules are effective starting in September 14, 2022.
The registration rules for .com.tr, .net.tr, and .org.tr domain names are loosened. It is no longer necessary to have a commercial presence in Turkey in order to register one of these second-level domain names.
New eligibility rules for .com.tr, .net.tr, and .org.tr
Until now, registration of .com.tr, .net.tr, and .org.tr domain names was subject to relatively restrictive rules:
- .com.tr: registering a .com.tr domain name is currently only open to those with commercial operations in Turkey, with the domain name corresponding to the brand name owned by the business entity owning the domain name, or the first and last name of a private individual who owns the domain name
- .net.tr and .org.tr: registration of a .net.tr or .org.tr domain name is currently open to those with a significant link to Turkey.
These eligibility rules have evolved, providing for a wider availability for .com.tr, .net.tr, and .org.tr. Going forward:
- No business related to Turkey will be required
- No prior right to a particular term (company name or brand name) will be required to register the corresponding domain name
This liberalization of .com.tr, .net.tr, and .org.tr is effective since September 14, 2022.
This opening up will entail a greater risk of cybersquatting, which is why we advise you to register your .com.tr, .net.tr, and .org.tr domain names, at their current prices, so that your orders will be submitted first when the new rules go into effect.
