Where to register a domain name?
A domain name may be registered through registrars which have signed the agreement on partner cooperation with NASK. All questions regarding fees and registration procedure should be referred directly to them. The registrars are ready to provide you with their offers and help with domain registration.
Where to check if a domain name is available for registration?
You can check domain availability in a domain name search engine.
What should be the syntax of a domain name?
A domain name may consist exclusively of letters of Latin alphabet, digits and “-“ (minus). The minus sign “-“ is not acceptable in the beginning, at the end and simultaneously on the third and fourth position in a domain name. An exception is IDN with “xn—“ prefix (more information on IDNs you can find here). A domain name cannot be longer than 63 signs excluding the extension (e.g. .pl, .com.pl).
Types of domains maintained by NASK:
country code domain “.pl”, regional and functional domains
IDNs with national diacritic signs
Acronym IDN (Internationalized Domain Name) denotes a domain name where diacritic national signs, characteristic for a particular language, are applied, e.g. in the Polish language the following signs may be distinguished: ą, ć, ę, ł, ń, ó, ś, ż, ź.
Thanks to the facility of registering domains, for example, with Polish signs, names may be pronounced with their original sounds. Since now “sąd.pl” is not “sad.pl” and “kąt.pl” is no longer “kat.pl”. More information on IDNs may be found here.
ENUM is a technology platform providing the transformation of phone numbers from E.164 standard into Internet domain names maintained in the Domain Name System (DNS). NASK maintains a central database of ENUM domains under 8.4.e164.arpa domain. More information on ENUM domains may be found here.
