Who can register .es domains?

Anyone can register a .es domain names on a first-come, first-served basis, however, everyone/every company has to provide an ID number from a government issued ID (i.e. driver’s license, passport, tax ID card, company registration number, VAT number). If the registrant of the domain name is an individual, the domain name registrant and its administrative contact must match.

    • Your .es domain name must renew prior to its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether you manually renew it or let us auto-renew it.
    • You can manually renew your .es domain name in the Domain Manager when it is within 1 year of expiration. For more information, see Manually renew my products or services.
