Domain Registration

.NO domains can be registered online through webinterface or API.

command         = AddDomain
domain          =
ownercontact0   = [owner handle]
admincontact0   = [admin contact]
techcontact0    = [tech contact]
billingcontact0 = [billing contact]
nameserver0     = [nameserver1]
nameserver1     = [nameserver2]

X-NO-ORGANIZATION-NUMBER = Organization Number as registered in Norway

X-NO-PERSON-IDENTIFIER = Person Identifier as received from the registry and has to be in the following form: N.PRI.XXXXXXXX
This identifier has to be requested directly at the registry The requester will receive an email from the registry with the required identifier.

Further details regarding the structure of the national ID number:

  • The national ID number consists of 11 digits
    • The first six digits represent the date of birth in the order date, month, year
    • The next three digits are an individual number, the third digit of which indicates gender – even numbers for women and odd numbers for men
    • The last two digits are control digits
    • The last five digits of the national ID number constitute the personal number
    • The three digits comprising the individual number are allocated sequentially within the specific date of birth. Individual digits are allocated as follows:
a) born 1854-1899: allocated from series 749-500
b) born 1900-1999: allocated from series 499-000
c) born 1940-1999: also allocated from series 999-900
d) born 2000-2039: allocated from series 999-500
For example
Day 	Month 	Year 	Individual number 	Control digits
01 	12 	99 	551			31

The first digits in the individual number show that the person was born in the 1800s and the last digit indicates a man. This number would belong to a man born on 1 December 1899. For reasons of data privacy, this is not an actual national ID number.

Attention.png .NO domain names can either be registered by an organization or private person, wherefore the respective extension has to be used.
