This extension doesn't have any residency requirements.


Technical requirements

.PT 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.


Registrations

.pt domain registrations are immediate.


Transfers

To complete .PT 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.

Cancellations

It's not possible to cancel a .PT domain registration, in any case you can request its removal, please note that the .pt domain removal does not involve the refund of the registration rate.


DNS modifications

DNS modifications are immediate, note that they must be propagated through the network, this process usually takes between 6 and 12 hours to complete, till then the domain will point to the previous DNS servers.


DNSSEC

We allow the usage of DNSSEC on .pt 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: What is DNSSEC and how does it work


Domain owner change

.pt domains do not allow automatic owner changes, those changes need to be done directly at DNS.pt. We recommend you to try to edit the owner of your .pt domain on our system in order to obtain the steps to complete that owner change.
