NIC BR also know as Registro.br is the sponsor and KeySystems/ToWeb is our backend provider for some customers for the country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD).br extension that represents Brazil.

Who can register .br domains?

You must have a Brazilian Tax ID (CNPJ / CPF) to register a .com.br, and .net.br domain.

  • .br – Not Supported
  • .com.br – Intended for commercial entities.
  • .net.br – Intended for network infrastructures, such as Internet Service Providers.

Registration restrictions

When registering a .br domain, you must follow specific requirements.

  • Must use: 3 – 26 Characters
  • Can use: Letters (a-z characters), numbers (0-9) and hyphens (except in the 1st or last characters of the domain name)
  • Cannot use: Special characters (e.g., & and #)
  • IDNs: Supported (Portugese)


  • Registration length: 1-10 years
  • Renewal length: 1-10 years
    • Your .br domain name renews before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether you set the domain name to auto-renew or manually renew. We attempt auto-renewal on day one of the month prior to the domain name’s expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal 10 days later. If that attempt fails, we make a final attempt 10 days later.
    • For example: Your .br domain name expires on October 10. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by September 20. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on September 1, September 10, and September 20.
    • If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 20th of the month prior to the expiration date, you can attempt to recover it, and there might be a fee to do so. See renew my expired domain for more information.
  • Backorders: Not supported
  • Transfers to ELITE WEB Co.: Supported
  • Transfers away from ELITE WEB Co.: Supported
    • Transfer Lock: Not supported
    • If you have opted to use our Trustee Services and would like to transfer away, please contact customer support to request the domain transfers.
    • If you have provided a contact from Brazil, the transfer away process is unique for .br. The domain does not need to be unlocked, you must update the Service Provider, and transfer ownership on your existing .br domains to the gaining Service Provider via the registry website.
  • Transfers to another ELITE WEB Co. account: Not supported
  • Basic privacy protection: Not supported
  • Protection plan upgrades: Not supported
  • Contact Updates: Supported
    • If you already have an account at the registry, the contact provider associated with your CNPJ/CPF known as the BR ORG contact will need to be updated at the registry website in order to be able to update your contacts with us. Please review section Transfer ownership.

Nameserver requirements

  • Must use: 1-6 Authoritive Nameservers
  • Can use: IPv4, IPv6
  • Cannot use: DNSSEC
