Register.it is the sponsor and Hexonet aka 1 Api GmbH is our backend provider for the country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) .it extension that represents Italy.

Who can register .it domains?

Individual and juridical persons residing in or belonging to a European Union Member State can register .it domain names. All others can use our trustee service to register a .it domain.

Registration restrictions

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

  • Must use: 2 – 63 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: Not supported

Features

  • Registration length: 1 year
  • Renewal length: 1 year
    • You can manually renew your .it domain name 61 days prior to its expiration date.
    • Your .it domain name renews before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether the domain is set to auto-renew or manually renew. We attempt auto-renewal 5 days prior to the domain name’s expiration date.
    • If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal on the 2nd day after the expiration date and again on the 9th day after the expiration date. If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the the expiration date, you can attempt to recover it, and there might be a fee to do so.
    • For example: Your .it domain name expires on October 10th. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by October 10th. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on October 5th, October 12th and October 19th.
