IDN Info

Greek letters:

According to the definition in Decision 351/76, homograph names are those Domain Names whose variable field is consisted of alpharithmetic characters which VISUALLY match the lower or upper case, punctuated or unpunctuated form, and their non-variable field is the same.
For example, let's consider the names eett.gr and εεττ.gr whose capital form is visually the same (EETT.gr and ΕΕΤΤ.gr). We should point out to those interested to the fact that audibly similar or visual dissimilar names are not covered by the above definition (for example, maria.gr has no homograph because the character ρ has no visually similar character in the Greek alphabet while one homograph of the Domain Name μαρια.gr is the latin mapia.gr - which in capital case becomes ΜΑΡΙΑ.gr). A table of the homograph characters can be found here.

The right to activate homograph names is reserved for the Domain Name Registrant to which the homographs in question are referring to. For the activation of each of those homograph names the Registrant has to contact their Registrar, and pay the necessary fee.

Domain Registration

.GR domains can be registered online through the Webinterface or with the corresponding API command.

Please note
Newly registered domains will remain in status "processing" until the domains are fully registered after 4-8 weeks.

[COMMAND]
(required)                
command         = AddDomain
domain          = domain.gr

techcontact0    = [tech contact]

Attention.png The Domain Name is automatically checked by the Registry and if it is not a restricted Domain Name, it becomes active within a maximum timeframe of 3 hours. The temporary activation of the Domain Name does not grant the Domain Name applicant any rights over the Domain Name.
The official registry (EETT) examines the application within a period of 4 - 8 weeks from its submission by the registrar to the Registry and proceeds to either accept or reject the request.
