Your question was: What are some GoDaddy promos going on now?What are the latest GoDaddy promos?.
I can register it at RegisterFly by just putting my country as Italy.
Would that work?..
Register it at registerfly? Please before any registration you make do a research about registerfly. Don't make any move.
And do not register with registerfly please...
Everything. Use the search box from the top of the page to make your own search.
It is unbelievable that there are still people that did not hear about the registerfly issue, after all the coverage the issue got. Don't know if their problems are fixed now (I heard that now they are resellers after ICANN suspended them as a registrar), but I wouldn't trust putting my money with them...
The question should be what's not wrong with registerfly. Just do a search here & on Google & you'll see that you will never want to ever deal with them http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RegisterFly http://www.icann.org/announcements/a...-2-16mar07.htm http://www.registerfly-lawsuit.com/ http://addingunderstanding.com/probl...egisterFly.com.
These are just a few to read off the 1st page of Google..
As alexsimon said, you have to be an EU citizen to legally own a .it HostGator (the registry operates a fax system, you have to fax proof of residency (such as address and passport number). If you sell a .it, the new owner has to do the same before they can attain ownership of the domain..
Some registrars, such as eurosnd.com will act as owner for you if you're outside the EU, but I can not comment on how easy it is to sell when they're the owner (I'm an EU citizen so I legally own my .it under my own name).
.it is a mature extension in an affluent area of the world- local language words would be very valuable and may get some type-in traffic..
With 'it' being an English word, there is also the potential for HostGator 'hacks' using English verbs, but these would require development to be worth anything, as example unlock.it (mobile phone unlocing site) sold for over $20,000 earlier this year...
I found a PREMIUM, 5 letter HostGator that is HIGHLY searched and encompasses many, many categories. Now I just can't find a good registrar that will act as my resident in EU that accepts Discover! I'm going crazy!.
Does ANYONE know where a few other registrars are for .it's that will work?.
If your not from Italy, imho it's big hassle and may not be worth it. I haven't seen a ton of .it's flip? Some, but light overall. Stick with a more open cctld for your own benfit and risk...
But I just can't resist. I have to have this domain. It's driving me crazy. I have to find a way...
.it is not open to EU residents but only to Italian residents, what EURODNS is doing may be against the Nic.it rules , I`d be careful.
I just wrote to Nic.it asking some info so we`ll see and I`ll let you know...
I have several .it domains living in the US. The registrar may act as your Italian agent. I think I used register.it if my memory serves correct. Let me know if that helps....
No, it is open to EU residents. I read their policy and discussed several times with their staff...
See 1.2.2 (g) http://www.nic.it/documenti/Regolamento5.0.1.pdf.
(I'm assuming with a name like italiandragon you can read Italian?)..
For those who can't read italian..:.
1.2.2 Registration - General rules.
A) -blah blah-.
B) First come first served policy -blah blah-.
C) -blah blah-.
D) -useless blah blah-.
E) The registry reject systematic registrations and cybersquatting..
F) The registration of a HostGator in the ".it" ccTLD dosen't imply any right for the name itself nor for subdomains (the italian NIC owns the HostGator name, it's only "borrowed" to you)..
G) This rules allows the registrations of HostGator names under the ".it" ccTLD only to European citizens, people living in the European Union, or any Business estabilished and/or with offices in the EU.
Trading of .it HostGator names is highly discouraged, but some people still do it, and I've never heard of any action taken by the italian NIC agaisnt HostGator sellers...
Thanks licesco, never occcured to me to provide English translation...
Thanks, yes I do know italian.
Ok, open to EU residents...
