I was able to reg. a country name under it's own ccTLD 4 days ago and it already showed up in whois the day after registration that I was the /img/avatar3.jpg. Today I received an email stating that the domain is too generic and took it away from me.

Can they do that?..

Yes they can as long as it is in their TERMS OF USE.

If it is not then I would say you could argue the point...

Go ahead and share the name - read most agreements and you'll see that almost any registry and/or registrar can cancel any name it wants to for any reason (Stated in terms, not saying they could legally back it up if push came to shove.)..

Gotta love terms of servies. (sarcastic!).

Looks like everyone has clearly made it open that it's allowed, but if you MUST have it talk to a lawyer for legal advise.

Note saying that even if you do contact a lawyer you well stand a chance at getting but always helps.

Allan the domain is SPAIN.ES.

I called the registrar and told me that .es didn't approved the registration. I told the sales rep that my name already showed up in whois info. I was even able to change the DNS...

Might be here:

Might be anywhere on that site, but that's fairly common (Now registries enforcing those rules is another matter entirely.).


(Maybe a bit here, also: ).

(Poorly Translated:.

A dominion "es" can at the request of be cancelled or by the public organization enterprise or part, in the following cases:.

1. When the dominion names are asked for by physical or legal people and organizations without legal personality that interests do not have or do not maintain bonds with Spain.

2. When the beneficiaries of the compound names of dominion exclusively by last names or a combination of own names and last names do not have direct relation with such.

3. When in the Registry false or incorrect data consist.

4. When the rules and specificationses established by the Authority of Allocation for the suitable operation of the system of names of dominion under "es" are failed to fulfill.

5. When the assigned names of dominion fail to fulfill the norms of syntaxes regulated in the section First of the Disposition Eleventh of Order ITC/1542/2005, of 19 of May and other anticipated conditions of allocation to the effect in the National Plan. If You it thinks that a dominion "es" is in some of the cases previously reviewed, it will be able to ask for the cancellation of the same one, sending a document to the direction of electronic mail, according to the model established, in which it will have to be identified properly and to credit the breach of the conditions of allocation in the predicted terms previously, according to the Instruction by which the procedure of cancellation of dominions settles down "es"...

That's an irrelevant question, really. What you're probably asking is is it legal.

Which it is, anyway. Whether it's immoral, unethical, whatever depends on the.

Side of the fence you choose to be on...

Comment #6

Hmmm.......not too familiar with the .es rules but I know for the .de there's a physical requirement of presence for the reg or admin. I know the registries will still let you register via a proxy (usually), but not wanting any trouble down the road re a technicality I have my aunt in Germany as my admin on my .de domains...
