.cat domain name
The .CAT domain, easily recognizable by general public, is reserved for people promoting Catalan language and culture.
Included with every domain
There is no specific procedure related to the registration of a domain name.
.CAT domain names are allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.
Terms and conditions
By registering a .cat domain name, you accept the conditions of the extension:
Special terms and conditions - Generic domain names
Restrictions / Allocation Rules:
A website in catalan (even partially) published within 6 months
A website promoting catalan culture (even partially) published within 6 months
In order to transfer your domain name to Netim, you must disable transfer protections and obtain the authorisation code from your current Registrar.
The transfer may take several days.
When the transfer is finalised, a year is added to the expiry date of the domain name.
To change the holder, you must first go through an authentication process.
To that end, validation emails will be sent to both current and future domain holders.
After a period of 5 days, the request will be cancelled.
The domain expiration date is not affected by the transfer process.
The .cat extension does not support special characters.
Netim is an accredited registrar
By choosing an accredited Registrar, you avoid middlemen which in turn gives you access to lower prices and makes domain registration, as well as other operations, quicker.
