“Remapped” Characters
A single non-ASCII character can also represent some combination of two ASCII and non-ASCII characters. For example, in the Greek alphabet, the combination of the characters “ἤ” and “ι” can also be represented by a single character “ᾔ”.
In order to avoid any problems arising from this situation, every combination of characters present in a domain name referable to a single character, is replaced by the equivalent single character.
Below, both the combination of characters and the single characters with which they are replaced, and the Unicode encodings are indicated.

Ordering a .IT domain:

[COMMAND]
(required)                                          
command                                   = AddDomain

X-IT-ENTITY-TYPE                          = 1 ... 7

Trustee Service

The Ownercontact of the domain registration must be inside the european union. If there is no eligible contact available you can use our Trustee Service which offers such a contact. To use the optional service you can omit the following extension:

x-it-accept-trustee-tac = 1
[COMMAND]
(required)                                          
command                                   = AddDomain
domain                                    = xxxx.it
X-IT-ACCEPT-TRUSTEE-TAC                   = 1
X-IT-SECT3-LIABILITY                      = 1
X-IT-SECT5-PERSONAL-DATA-FOR-REGISTRATION = 1
X-IT-SECT6-PERSONAL-DATA-FOR-DIFFUSION    = 1
X-IT-SECT7-EXPLICIT-ACCEPTANCE            = 1
                                          
EOF

Please note: If you are choosing the trustee solution, then the registration will not be processed in realtime because of the verification procedure of our Trustee Service, which can take up to 3 days.

Domain Modification

Trade

The registrant can be changed with the TradeDomain command. In this case, a new authcode should be set for security reasons. If the authcode is not changed there will be a notification and the trade will not be processed.

A Change of Registrant also requires (as for a new domain registration) the agreement to the .IT registration conditions. Therefore you have to agree and set the following parameters:

  • X-IT-SECT3-LIABILITY = 1
  • X-IT-SECT5-PERSONAL-DATA-FOR-REGISTRATION = 1
  • X-IT-SECT6-PERSONAL-DATA-FOR-DIFFUSION = 1
  • X-IT-SECT7-EXPLICIT-ACCEPTANCE = 1
  • X-IT-ENTITY-TYPE = ..
[COMMAND]
(required)                                          
command                                   = TradeDomain
domain                                    = xxxx.it
ownercontact0                             = [new owner handle]
X-IT-PIN                                  = .........
X-IT-SECT3-LIABILITY                      = 1
X-IT-SECT5-PERSONAL-DATA-FOR-REGISTRATION = 1
X-IT-SECT6-PERSONAL-DATA-FOR-DIFFUSION    = 1
X-IT-SECT7-EXPLICIT-ACCEPTANCE            = 1
X-IT-ENTITY-TYPE                          = ..
                                          
EOF

Domain Renewal

As .IT domains can only be registered on a yearly basis, they cannot be renewed explicitly. To renew an .IT domain you have to set the domain renewal mode or default renewal mode to "AUTORENEW" or "RENEWONCE".

Deletion Process

A .IT domain can be deleted by using DeleteDomain command.

[COMMAND]
(required)        
command = DeleteDomain
domain  = yourdomain.it
