Domain Trustee Service
Some domain names have local presence requirements domain owners must comply with. Our trustee service was created to help you register your desired domain name without having to worry about those requirements!
How would I benefit from a domain trustee service?
Some Registries have specific restrictions in place, which can make it more complicated to register a domain name.
As an example, for certain ccTLDs (country-code Top-Level Domain) domain holders must be companies registered in the country related to the ccTLD. Other ccTLDs might only require holders to be companies registered somewhere in the EU, etc.
Whenever restrictions apply to the ccTLD you are trying to register, you will automatically be offered our trustee service.
By partnering with trusted local agents, Netim enables you to register domain names you do not currently meet the local presence requirements for.
What are the advantages of trustee services?
Our trustee service allows you to:
- Benefit from long-term solutions for the registration of restricted domain names, compliant with each country’s specific rules and requirements
- Register domain names without being limited by your country of residence
- Retain full beneficial ownership of your domain names
The obligations of both parties are stated in our General Terms and Conditions, which you will be asked to consent to before completing your order.
As is legally required, customer accounts must be authenticated before trustee services can be set up. The account owner will be asked to provide proof of identity to authenticate the account.
Netim reserves the right to deny service for any reason, including copyright infringement and illegal activities such as phishing, spamming or the online distribution of pharmaceutical drugs.
How can I get trustee services for my domain name?
- Pick the domain name you want to register, add it to the cart and log in to your account.
- The option to add our trustee service to your order will automatically appear if available for the extension and if you do not meet the requirements.
- Complete the authentication process if you are ordering our trustee service for the first time.
