Fulfillment Info

FTLD .com.tr is a Fulfillment TLD. Fullfilment TLDs (FTLDs) are registered through a manual registration process. The manual registration process might involve documents, depending on respective registry regulations, and are therefore not automated for real-time registrations and real-time updates. Updates might cause additional costs!

IDN Information

  • Although Turkish encoded domain names registered through our system contain Turkish characters in browsers, the name servers still use a special ASCII representation of them. For this reason, you must use the ASCII representation of the IDN for the configuration of the name servers.
  • Allowed chars ğ, ı, ü, ş, ö, ç
