We are happy to help you with all your questions.

The release of the .au domain will start on March 24, 2022. From then on, the Australian registry will allow direct registrations under the .au extension. Until now, only third level registrations are possible (.com.au, .net.au, .org.au) but that will change from March 24, 2022.

With the release of the .au domain, Australia is following the lead of the UK and New Zealand, among others, who, after years of emphasizing third level domains (.co.uk and .co.nz respectively), also released . uk and .nz.

The release of the .au extension will therefore start on March 24, 2022. From then on, anyone who wishes to do so can register a name under .au, provided you meet the conditions imposed by the Australian registry. These conditions now also apply to a registration under .com.au or .net.au.

The conditions:
– Either have a registered trademark in Australia or be an Australian company
– There must be a link between the domain name and the owner of the domain name.
– In addition, if the owner is not an Australian company, the domain name must correspond exactly to the trademark registered in Australia.

If you do not meet these conditions, please contact bNamed. We can undoubtedly still help you out.

The Priority Allocation Process will also start on March 24, 2022. From then on, owners of a third level Australian domain name will have priority for 6 months to register their name directly under .au.
The already registered third level .au domain names are classified in category 1 and category 2 names. Category 1 names were registered before February 4, 2018, category 2 names were registered after February 4, 2018. This distinction also plays a role during the Priority Allocation Process.

So you have a number of possible scenarios. These situations only apply to third level .au registrations:

1) getyourname.com.au is category 1 and getyourname.net.au is category 2
The owners of both names can claim getyourname.au. If the owner of getyourname.com.au (category 1) submits an application for getyourname.au, it will be granted to him. If the owner of getyourname.net.au (category 2) submits an application for getyourname.au, he will have to wait until September 20th. If the owner of getyourname.com.au (category 1) has not submitted an application by then, the name will be assigned to the owner of getyourname.net.au. If the owner of getyourname.com.au still submits a request for the .au version of this name, this name will be assigned to him

2) getyourname.com.au and getyourname.net.au are both category 1
Both owners can claim on getyourname.au. If only one of them submits an application, the name will be assigned to him on September 20. If both owners submit an application, they will have to decide among themselves who can use the .au version of the name. If they don’t come to an agreement, no one will be able to register the name.

3) getyourname.com.au and getyourname.net.au are both category 2
Both owners can claim on getyourname.au. If they would both do this, the registration date of their third level domain name will be looked at. The person with the oldest domain name may then register the .au version of the name.

These rules for already registered third level names only apply during the Priority Allocation Process. This period ends on September 20, 2022. Afterwards, as the owner of a third level domain name, you no longer have priority to register your name under .au.

The situation in Ukraine moves everybody. DNSBelgium (.be registry) also wants to contribute.

For example, the quarantine period of all .be domain names with an owner in Ukraine, Russia or Belarus, 3 countries where people suffer from economic sanctions, will be extended from the usual 40 days to 1 year. Unfortunately, the registry cannot help with hosting problems, but that way they won’t lose their domain name in the first year.

In addition, Digital for Youth (one of DNSBelgium’s sustainability projects) will release an additional amount of €100,000 to support Ukrainian refugees in Belgium. Additional donations will be requested, both from public and private parties, and with this additional amount laptops will be collected and refurbished. Ukrainian refugees can gain access to education and language courses through these laptops. Hopefully this will also provide an opportunity to communicate with their family.

At the beginning of March 2022, DNSBelgium (.be registry) introduced an extra step in the registration of a .be domain name for private individuals. Every Belgian private individual who registers a domain name under the .be extension for the first time will have to prove his or her identity via Itsme or eID.

Domain names under .be have a good reputation and that is thanks to DNSBelgium, who attach great importance to quality. The registry has always wanted to ensure that the identity of the owner of a domain name is correct. In the past, suspicious .be names were already picked out by the registry and the owner was asked to confirm his identity.

Now the registry goes one step further. If you register a .be domain name as a Belgian private individual for the first time, you will first have to confirm your identity before your domain name is effectively completely yours.

You can register a .be domain name without any problems via bNamed.net, but you have to go through a few extra steps. It works as follows.

  1. You request your domain name via bNamed.net
  2. We immediately request your domain name at the registry
  3. Your domain name will be registered for you, but when you surf to your domain name, you will receive a message that a verification still needs to be done
  4. DNSBelgium sends an email to the owner requesting verification
  5. The owner confirms his identity via Itsme or eID
  6. The owner will receive a confirmation of this verification from DNSBelgium After this correct verification, it can take up to 30 minutes before your domain name is active. After this correct verification, the domain name is also completely yours. 

DNSBelgium has already indicated they also want to request confirmation of identity from companies and Dutch private individuals in the future. However, it is currently unclear when this will be introduced.

From now on, the Tanzanian registry allows registrations directly under the .tz extension. Until now, only third level registrations were possible under .tz (.co.tz, .or,.tz,…).

The release of the .tz domain takes place in several phases:

Sunrise: from March 1, 2022 to May 31, 2022
Anyone who already has a third level .tz domain name can register the exact same name under the .tz domain.

Landrush: from June 1, 2022 to June 30, 2022
Anyone who registered a third level .tz domain between March 1, 2022 and May 31, 2022 can register the exact same name under .tz.

General availability: from July 1, 2022
Anyone who wishes to do so can register a name under the .tz domain.
You can already pre-register a .tz domain name via bNamed.net.

During the sunrise and the landrush, the requested .tz domain names will be granted at the end of the period. From general availability, the first come, first served principle is applied.

Registering a .tz domain name is easy via bNamed.net. We offer a local address for .tz domain names so that registrations under the .tz domain can go smoothly.

DNSPT (.pt-registry) now offers an extra form of security for your .pt domain name, namely the registry lock.

If you decide to activate the registry lock for your .pt domain name, no update can be done to this name without first going through a special procedure.

With a website under .sexy you can go in many directions. Do you sell sexy lingerie or clothing? Can people come to you for a burlesque photo shoot? Are you active in the adult industry? Then a .sexy domain name is the perfect way to give your website that little bit extra and ensure that everyone remembers your name without any problems.

However, the registry that manages the .sexy extension has announced a huge price increase. On April 30, 2022, their prices will become about 100 times more expensive. There is nothing sexy about that price increase, so do you want to register a .sexy domain name? Then do it before April 30, 2022. All .sexy names that are registered before that date can also be extended afterwards at this lower price.

From April 30, 2022 you will have to pay a lot more for your .sexy domain name.

Win win with your .no: Attract more clients and get a higher search engine score
First of all, you’ll attract more Norwegian clients with a .no domain name. Our experience has shown us that people are very chauvinistic when it comes to domain names. Norwegian people expect a .no domain name, when they surf to a website they almost automatically type .no at the end, it’s that simple. And honestly, it would be a shame to ran out on all those potential customers, simply because you didn’t register a .no domain name.

Secondly, your Norwegian clients will remember you more easily. If you register a .no domain name, you’ll make your (potential) clients feel at home. A .no domain is something they’re familiar with and what they unconsciously expect. So you anticipate on their chauvinistic feeling and

Last but not least, Google considers websites with a .no name more relevant in Norway, which makes them appear higher in the search results.
