.nl domain regulations
Index of regulations
This extension doesn't have any residency requirements.
.NL domains require the DNS to be active on different subnets and to be authoritative for the domain at the time of registration.
You can check if they pass these minimum requirements using our Zone Check tool.
.nl domain registrations are immediate.
To complete .NL domain transfer, you'll need your current registrar to provide you the domain's AuthCode or EPP-Key to verify the ownership of the domain.
Transfers can take between 5 and 7 days to complete. Some registrars provide manual transfers allowing transfers to be completed on the same day, contact your current registrar to find out if they offer this service.
The expiration date changes but a new year isn't added. The new expiration date will be created adding a year to the transfer completion date.
Renewing your .NL domain only takes a minute and can completed at any time.
It's impossible to cancel the registry of .NL domains.
DNS modification is immediate, please note they must propagate through the network, this process can take up to 6-12 hours to complete, until then the domain will still point to the previous DNS servers.
We allow the usage of DNSSEC on .nl domains. Your domain can take advantage of this additional security layer that DNS servers that are compatible with this technology can provide.
More information is available at: DNSSEC: What is it and how does it work.
Domain owner change
.NL domains permit automatic owner changes, you'll be able to change this data from your client area.
.nl domains permit characters from 'a' to 'z', numbers from '0' to '9' and hyphens '-'.
A hyphen '-' is not permitted in the first or last position of the domain name.
Two consecutive hyphens are not permitted in the 3rd and 4th position.
