.me Domain FAQ

.me General FAQ
Montenegro is a country in Southeastern Europe. It is a country with a very rich cultural history dating back to ancient times. It has an estimated population of approximately 625,000 people, and the official language is Montenegrin.

The economy in Montenegro is mostly service based, and aluminum and steel production make up most of the cpr144449003101 industrial output, while the tourism sector is constantly growing and is an important contributor to the country's economic growth.

Why should I buy a .me domain name?
Montenegro has a growing economy, and the influx of new business into the area provides an opportunity to capitalize on the needs of the emerging consumer and commercial cpr144449003101 markets. The .me extension is ideal for companies based in the region to help present a professional image and show your commitment to the region to local customers.
What name can I register?
Reserved Names
A list of Reserved Names has been held back for government and registry use. These names are not available for registration by the public.

Premium names are highly valuable .ME domains, such as key-words and generics, which naturally create call-to-action and catchy marketing messages chiefly due to their memorability and multiplicity of meaning . A number of .ME premium names has been already turned to successful online services receiving tons of traffic.

The allocation criteria of premium domains is as follows:

1. The name must be used as the primary URL for a web site, a product site, or a service site.

2. The web site, product, or service cannot contain or promote sexually oriented material or advertising.

3. The applicant (i) cannot intend to use the name for personal use, cpr144449003101 (ii) cannot apply as an individual, and (iii) cannot be a sole proprietorship.

4. The applicant must be able to demonstrate significant traffic, or make an offer of a one-time payment of no less than EUR 20,000 (does not include annual registration fees). Significant traffic means average daily unique visitors of no less than 15,000 (or minimum of 450,000 per month). A proportional mix of traffic and one-time payment is also acceptable, for example, 7500 unique visitors per day and a EUR 10,000 one- time payment.

5. Applicant must agree to the other terms of the template agreement (attached), including a minimum 3 year term and restricted rights during that minimum term.

Once your domain is approved, the registry will provide you with an authorization code which you can use to transfer the domain into your account with 101Domain.

.me Domains Dispute & Policy

Last Update 20 August 2012. The most current .me domains dispute policy can be found at: www.domain.me/files/ME-UDRP-Policy.pdf

.ME Sunrise Challenge Policy

1. Purpose. This Sunrise Registration Challenge Policy (the "Policy") has been adopted by doMEn d.o.o. (“doMEn”) and is incorporated by reference into the Sunrise registration agreement (the “Registration Agreement”) between you (as the “Registrant”) and us (as the “Registrar”). Thus, the Policy applies to all second-level domain names applied for during the Sunrise Registration Period, i.e. between 1 May 2008 and 20 May 2008, whether or not such names were subsequently transferred. The Policy sets forth the terms and conditions that will apply in the event of a dispute between you and any party other than us or .doMEn regarding the compliance of your registration of a .ME top-level domain name (the “Domain Name”) with the Sunrise Registration Conditions set forth in the Registration Agreement and reproduced in Paragraph 4(c) of this Policy (“Sunrise Registration Conditions”). doMEn may itself also initiate challenges in connection with Sunrise registrations appearing to be made in violation of the Sunrise Registration Conditions (“Registry Challenges”); such Registry Challenges may also be submitted after the conclusion of the Sunrise Challenge Period, which begins Monday, 9 June 2008, the week following the conclusion of the Sunrise Auction Period, and ends Monday, 7 July, 2008.

The footnotes to this Policy are an integral part thereof.

Proceedings under Paragraph 4 of this Policy will be conducted pursuant to the Rules for Sunrise Registration Challenge Policy (the “Rules”), which are available online at www.domain.me

2. Registrant Representations. By applying to register a Domain Name in accordance with the Sunrise Registration Conditions, you hereby represent and warrant to us that (a) the statements that you made in your Registration Agreement are complete and accurate; (b) the registration of the Domain Name complies with the Sunrise Registration Conditions; (c) to your knowledge, neither the registration nor the use of the Domain Name will infringe upon or otherwise violate the rights of any third party; (d) you are not registering the Domain Name for an unlawful purpose; and (e) you will not knowingly use the Domain Name in violation of any applicable laws or regulations. It is your responsibility to determine whether your Domain Name registration infringes or violates someone else’s rights and complies with the terms and conditions of the Registration Agreement.

doMEn reserves the right to cancel, at any time, a domain name registered in violation of any of the above-mentioned conditions.

3. Cancellations, Transfers, and Changes. We will cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to a domain name registration that is subject to this Policy under the following circumstances:
a. Subject to the provisions of Paragraph 5, our receipt of written or appropriate electronic instructions from you or your authorized agent to take such action; and/or
b. Our receipt of an order from a court or arbitral tribunal, in each case of competent jurisdiction, requiring such action; and/or
c. Our receipt of a decision requiring such action in any administrative proceeding to which you were a party and which was conducted under this Policy or a later version of this Policy adopted by doMEn. doMEn may also cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to a domain name registration in accordance with the terms of the Registration Agreement or other legal requirements.
4. Mandatory Administrative Proceeding.

This Paragraph sets forth the type of disputes for which you are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding. These proceedings will be administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization Arbitration and Mediation Center (the “Center”).

a. Applicable Disputes. You are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding in the event that a third party (the "Challenger") asserts to the Center, in compliance with the Rules, that:
(i) at the time of your registration of the Domain Name, no current (non-expired) trademark or service mark was registered in your name;
(ii) the Domain Name is not identical to the textual or word elements of the trademark or service mark registration on which the registration of your Domain Name is based;

or

The trademark or service mark registration must be in the name of the Domain Name registrant. A trademark license will not be considered sufficient, nor will a registration in the supplemental register of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Unregistered trademark or service marks, or other rights in distinctive signs (such as trade names, personal names, geographical indications etc.), do not meet the Sunrise Registration Conditions.

Identity will be deemed to exist also where there is a space between the textual or word elements of the mark (e.g., "service mark") and, in the Domain Name, a hyphen is used or the elements are combined (e.g., <service-mark.me> or <servicemark.me>). Identity will also be deemed to exist when special characters in the trademark or service mark (such as ~ @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) + = <> { } [ ] | \ /) , spaces, and punctuation (such as : ; “ ‘ , . ?), are, in the Domain Name, eliminated entirely (no space), replaced with hyphens within a domain name or transcribed in a conventionally accepted way. For example, if you own a trademark registration for "Service & Mark" and qualify to register in .me, you may apply for <servicemark.me >, <service-mark.me>, or <serviceandmark.me>. If the trademark contains letters which contain additional elements that for technical reasons cannot be reproduced in the domain name, such as ä, é or ñ, the letters concerned must, in the Domain Name, be reproduced without these elements (such as a, e, n), or must be replaced by conventionally accepted spellings (such as ae for ä). In all other respects, the Domain Name must be identical to the

(iii) the trademark or service mark registration on which the registration of your Domain Name is based is not of national effect;

or

(iv) the trademark or service mark on which the registration of your Domain Name was based was not registered or applied for, prior to 28 June 2006 with the trademark authority with which the mark is registered

All challenges under this Policy (except for any Registry Challenges) must be submitted, no later than 7 July 2008 at 12:00 noon UTC. Proceedings under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) shall not be brought against a Domain Name, as long as such Domain Name is, or can be, subject to a challenge under this Sunrise Challenge Policy.

b. Challenger’s Compliance with the Sunrise Registration Conditions. A Challenger seeking transfer of the Domain Name is required to demonstrate, as part of the administrative proceeding and as a condition for such transfer, the Challenger’s own compliance with the Sunrise Registration Conditions.
c. How to Demonstrate Compliance with the Sunrise Registration Conditions. In order to demonstrate compliance with the Sunrise Registration Conditions, a Party must submit, as further specified in the Rules, an original or a copy, certified as correct by the issuing trademark authority, of a trademark or service mark certificate establishing that:
(i) at the time of the registration of the Domain Name, a trademark or service mark was registered in the name of the Party, and was current (non-expired), as evidenced by the date(s) set forth in the certificate itself;

and

(ii) the textual or word elements of the trademark or service mark registration are identical to the Domain Name;

and

(iii) the trademark or service mark registration is of national effect;

and

(iv) the trademark or service mark was registered or applied for, prior to 28 June 2006, with the trademark authority with which the mark is registered
d. Multiple Challenges. In the event more than one challenge is submitted to the Center regarding the same Domain Name, the Center will process only the first challenge received. Any further challenges will not be processed and no challenger’s fee will be charged by the Center. The Center is under no obligation to communicate concerning any such further challenges.

For instance, European Community trademarks meet the condition of national effect, but United States state trademarks or service marks do not.

The trademark or service mark must have been registered in the name of the domain name registrant on or before 28 June 2006. It will also be considered sufficient if the Domain Name registrant had applied for the trademark or service mark before that date, provided that the mark is registered by the time of the Domain Name registration.

However, if a challenge is terminated without a determination by the Center regarding the Respondent’s and/or the Challenger’s compliance with the Sunrise Registration Conditions, the Center will process the next-filed challenge, provided that this challenge was also filed during the Sunrise Challenge Period.

e. Decision. The challenge will be decided upon by the Center as set out in Subparagraphs (i) to (iii) below. The Center’s decision of whether the Sunrise Registration Conditions are met will be based on a prima facie examination of any trademark or service mark certificates submitted, in relation to the information contained in the relevant doMEn Whois database. The Center’s decision is of an administrative nature and shall be final. The Center shall not be required to state reasons for its decision.
(i) If the Center finds that you have registered the Domain Name in compliance with the Sunrise Registration Conditions, the Center will dismiss the Challenge.
(ii) If the Center is unable to find that you have registered the Domain Name in compliance with the Sunrise Registration Conditions, the Challenge will be granted. If the Challenger has requested transfer, the transfer will be subject to a decision by the Center that the challenge complies with the Sunrise Registration Conditions, failing which Subparagraph (iii) shall apply.
(iii) If a prevailing Challenger sought a cancellation, or if neither Party established compliance with the Sunrise Registration Conditions, the Center shall order that the Domain Name be cancelled.
f. Fees. In accordance with the Rules, the submission of a challenge under this Policy (subject to any other arrangements that may apply to the submission of Registry Challenges) is subject to the payment of a Challenger’s fee in the amount of 700 Euros, subject to the provisions of Rules, Paragraph 13. All payments are to be made by credit card. If a challenge is submitted, but the Challenger’s fee is not paid in accordance with the Rules, the challenge will be dismissed.
g. Our Involvement in Administrative Proceedings. We do not, and will not, participate in the administration or conduct of any proceeding before the Center under this Policy. In addition, we will not be liable as a result of any decisions rendered by the Center. doMEn reserves the right to bring Registry Challenges, as set forth in Paragraph 1.
h. Remedies. The remedies available to a Challenger shall be limited to requiring the cancellation of your Domain Name registration or the transfer of your Domain Name registration to the Challenger.
i. Notification. The Center shall notify us and doMEn of any decision made under this Policy with respect to a Domain Name you have registered with us in accordance with the Rules. The outcomes of all administrative proceedings under this Policy shall be published in accordance with the Rules, except as determined otherwise by doMEn with regard to Registry Challenges.
j. Availability of Court Proceedings. The mandatory administrative proceeding requirements set forth in Paragraph 4(a) shall not prevent either party from submitting the dispute to a court of competent jurisdiction for independent resolution. Such submission shall not preclude the Center from processing any challenge.
5. Transfers During a Dispute.
a. Transfers of a Domain Name to a New Holder. You may not transfer your Domain Name registration that is subject to this Policy to another holder before the end of the Sunrise Challenge Period and until any challenges brought pursuant to this Policy in relation to this Domain Name have been resolved, except that a transfer may be made to the Challenger in a pending administrative proceeding under this Policy (e.g., in the event of a settlement of the dispute), provided that the Center has decided that the challenge complies with the Sunrise Registration Conditions. Any registration pursuant to such transfer will be subject to the Sunrise Registration Conditions.
b. Changing Registrars. You may not transfer your Domain Name registration that is subject to this Policy to another registrar before the end of the Sunrise Challenge Period and until any challenges brought pursuant to this Policy in relation to this Domain Name have been resolved.
6. Policy Modifications.

doMEn reserves the right to modify this Policy at any time. We will post any revisions of this Policy online at www.domain.me at least seven (7) days prior to its effective date. Unless this Policy has already been invoked by the submission of a challenge to the Center, in which event the version of the Policy in effect at the time it was invoked will apply to you until the challenge has been resolved, all such changes will be binding and apply to all challenges filed on or after the effective date of the modified Policy. In the event that you object to a change in this Policy, your sole remedy is to cancel your Domain Name registration with us, provided that you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees you paid to us. The revised Policy will apply to you until you cancel your Domain Name registration.

Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy
(As Approved by ICANN on October 24, 1999)

This Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the "Policy") has been adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN"), is incorporated by reference into your Registration Agreement, and sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between you and any party other than us (the .me registrar) over the registration and use of an Internet domain name registered by you. Proceedings under Paragraph 4 of this Policy will be conducted according to the Rules for Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the "Rules of Procedure"), which are available at www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-rules-24oct99.htm, and the selected administrative-dispute-resolution service provider's supplemental rules.
2. Your Representations.
By applying to register a domain name, or by asking us to maintain or renew a domain name registration, you hereby represent and warrant to us that (a) the statements that you made in your Registration Agreement are complete and accurate; (b) to your knowledge, the registration of the domain name will not infringe upon or otherwise violate the rights of any third party; (c) you are not registering the domain name for an unlawful purpose; and (d) you will not knowingly use the domain name in violation of any applicable laws or regulations. It is your responsibility to determine whether your domain name registration infringes or violates someone else's rights.
3. Cancellations, Transfers, and Changes.
We will cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to domain name registrations under the following circumstances:
a. subject to the provisions of Paragraph 8, our receipt of written or appropriate electronic instructions from you or your authorized agent to take such action;

c. our receipt of a decision of an Administrative Panel requiring such action in any administrative proceeding to which you were a party and which was conducted under this Policy or a later version of this Policy adopted by ICANN or the .me Registry. (See Paragraph 4(i) and (k) below.)
We may also cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to a domain name registration in accordance with the terms of your Registration Agreement or other legal requirements.
4. Mandatory Administrative Proceeding.
This Paragraph sets forth the type of disputes for which you are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding. These proceedings will be conducted before one of the administrative-dispute-resolution service providers listed at www.icann.org/en/dndr/udrp/approved-providers.htm (each, a "Provider").
a. Applicable Disputes. You are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding in the event that a third party (a "complainant") asserts to the applicable Provider, in compliance with the Rules of Procedure, that
(i) your domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights; and
(ii) you have no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and
(iii) your domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith.
In the administrative proceeding, the complainant must prove that each of these three elements are present.
b. Evidence of Registration and Use in Bad Faith. For the purposes of Paragraph 4(a)(iii), the following circumstances, in particular but without limitation, if found by the Panel to be present, shall be evidence of the registration and use of a domain name in bad faith:
(i) circumstances indicating that you have registered or you have acquired the domain name primarily for the purpose of selling, renting, or otherwise transferring the domain name registration to the complainant who is the owner of the trademark or service mark or to a competitor of that complainant, for valuable consideration in excess of your documented out-of-pocket costs directly related to the domain name; or
(ii) you have registered the domain name in order to prevent the owner of the trademark or service mark from reflecting the mark in a corresponding domain name, provided that you have engaged in a pattern of such conduct; or
(iii) you have registered the domain name primarily for the purpose of disrupting the business of a competitor; or
(iv) by using the domain name, you have intentionally attempted to attract, for commercial gain, Internet users to your web site or other on-line location, by creating a likelihood of confusion with the complainant's mark as to the source, sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of your web site or location or of a product or service on your web site or location.
c. How to Demonstrate Your Rights to and Legitimate Interests in the Domain Name in Responding to a Complaint. When you receive a complaint, you should refer to Paragraph 5 of the Rules of Procedure in determining how your response should be prepared. Any of the following circumstances, in particular but without limitation, if found by the Panel to be proved based on its evaluation of all evidence presented, shall demonstrate your rights or legitimate interests to the domain name for purposes of Paragraph 4(a)(ii):
(i) before any notice to you of the dispute, your use of, or demonstrable preparations to use, the domain name or a name corresponding to the domain name in connection with a bona fide offering of goods or services; or
(ii) you (as an individual, business, or other organization) have been commonly known by the domain name, even if you have acquired no trademark or service mark rights; or
(iii) you are making a legitimate noncommercial or fair use of the domain name, without intent for commercial gain to misleadingly divert consumers or to tarnish the trademark or service mark at issue.
d. Selection of Provider. The complainant shall select the Provider from among those approved by ICANN by submitting the complaint to that Provider. The selected Provider will administer the proceeding, except in cases of consolidation as described in Paragraph 4(f).
e. Initiation of Proceeding and Process and Appointment of Administrative Panel. The Rules of Procedure state the process for initiating and conducting a proceeding and for appointing the panel that will decide the dispute (the "Administrative Panel").
f. Consolidation. In the event of multiple disputes between you and a complainant, either you or the complainant may petition to consolidate the disputes before a single Administrative Panel. This petition shall be made to the first Administrative Panel appointed to hear a pending dispute between the parties. This Administrative Panel may consolidate before it any or all such disputes in its sole discretion, provided that the disputes being consolidated are governed by this Policy or a later version of this Policy adopted by ICANN or the .me Registry.
g. Fees. All fees charged by a Provider in connection with any dispute before an Administrative Panel pursuant to this Policy shall be paid by the complainant, except in cases where you elect to expand the Administrative Panel from one to three panelists as provided in Paragraph 5(b)(iv) of the Rules of Procedure, in which case all fees will be split evenly by you and the complainant.
h. Our Involvement in Administrative Proceedings. We do not, and will not, participate in the administration or conduct of any proceeding before an Administrative Panel. In addition, we will not be liable as a result of any decisions rendered by the Administrative Panel.
i. Remedies. The remedies available to a complainant pursuant to any proceeding before an Administrative Panel shall be limited to requiring the cancellation of your domain name or the transfer of your domain name registration to the complainant.
j. Notification and Publication. The Provider shall notify us of any decision made by an Administrative Panel with respect to a domain name you have registered with us. All decisions under this Policy will be published in full over the Internet, except when an Administrative Panel determines in an exceptional case to redact portions of its decision.
k. Availability of Court Proceedings. The mandatory administrative proceeding requirements set forth in Paragraph 4 shall not prevent either you or the complainant from submitting the dispute to a court of competent jurisdiction for independent resolution before such mandatory administrative proceeding is commenced or after such proceeding is concluded. If an Administrative Panel decides that your domain name registration should be canceled or transferred, we will wait ten (10) business days (as observed in the location of our principal office) after we are informed by the applicable Provider of the Administrative Panel's decision before implementing that decision. We will then implement the decision unless we have received from you during that ten (10) business day period official documentation (such as a copy of a complaint, file-stamped by the clerk of the court) that you have commenced a lawsuit against the complainant in a jurisdiction to which the complainant has submitted under Paragraph 3(b)(xiii) of the Rules of Procedure. (In general, that jurisdiction is either the location of our principal office or of your address as shown in our Whois database. See Paragraphs 1 and 3(b)(xiii) of the Rules of Procedure for details.) If we receive such documentation within the ten (10) business day period, we will not implement the Administrative Panel's decision, and we will take no further action, until we receive (i) evidence satisfactory to us of a resolution between the parties; (ii) evidence satisfactory to us that your lawsuit has been dismissed or withdrawn; or (iii) a copy of an order from such court dismissing your lawsuit or ordering that you do not have the right to continue to use your domain name.
5. All Other Disputes and Litigation.
All other disputes between you and any party other than us regarding your domain name registration that are not brought pursuant to the mandatory administrative proceeding provisions of Paragraph 4 shall be resolved between you and such other party through any court, arbitration or other proceeding that may be available.
6. Our Involvement in Disputes.
We will not participate in any way in any dispute between you and any party other than us regarding the registration and use of your domain name. You shall not name us as a party or otherwise include us in any such proceeding. In the event that we are named as a party in any such proceeding, we reserve the right to raise any and all defenses deemed appropriate, and to take any other action necessary to defend ourselves.
7. Maintaining the Status Quo.
We will not cancel, transfer, activate, deactivate, or otherwise change the status of any domain name registration under this Policy except as provided in Paragraph 3 above.
8. Transfers During a Dispute.
a. Transfers of a Domain Name to a New Holder. You may not transfer your domain name registration to another holder (i) during a pending administrative proceeding brought pursuant to Paragraph 4 or for a period of fifteen (15) business days (as observed in the location of our principal place of business) after such proceeding is concluded; or (ii) during a pending court proceeding or arbitration commenced regarding your domain name unless the party to whom the domain name registration is being transferred agrees, in writing, to be bound by the decision of the court or arbitrator. We reserve the right to cancel any transfer of a domain name registration to another holder that is made in violation of this subparagraph.
b. Changing Registrars. You may not transfer your domain name registration to another registrar during a pending administrative proceeding brought pursuant to Paragraph 4 or for a period of fifteen (15) business days (as observed in the location of our principal place of business) after such proceeding is concluded. You may transfer administration of your domain name registration to another registrar during a pending court action or arbitration, provided that the domain name you have registered with us shall continue to be subject to the proceedings commenced against you in accordance with the terms of this Policy. In the event that you transfer a domain name registration to us during the pendency of a court action or arbitration, such dispute shall remain subject to the domain name dispute policy of the registrar from which the domain name registration was transferred.
9. Policy Modifications.
We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time with the permission of ICANN. We will post our revised Policy at least thirty (30) calendar days before it becomes effective. Unless this Policy has already been invoked by the submission of a complaint to a Provider, in which event the version of the Policy in effect at the time it was invoked will apply to you until the dispute is over, all such changes will be binding upon you with respect to any domain name registration dispute, whether the dispute arose before, on or after the effective date of our change. In the event that you object to a change in this Policy, your sole remedy is to cancel your domain name registration with us, provided that you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees you paid to us. The revised Policy will apply to you until you cancel your domain name registration.

The representation of an IPv4 address in the DNS system.

AAAA record
The representation of an IPv6 address in the DNS system.

Administrative contact
Majority of the registries require 4 contacts for a successful domain registration: Registrant, Administrative, Technical and Billing.

The ASCII-compatible encoded (ACE) representation of an internationalized domain name, i.e. how it is transmitted internally within the DNS protocol. A-labels always commence the with the prefix "xn--". Contrast with U-label.

ARPA
Originally a reference to the US Government agency that managed some of the Internet’s initial development, now a top-level domain used solely for machine-readable use by computers for certain protocols — such as for reverse IP address lookups, and ENUM. The domain is not designed for general registrations. IANA manages ARPA in conjunction with the Internet Architecture Board.

The standard for transmitting English (or "Latin") letters over the Internet. DNS was originally limited to only Latin characters because it uses ASCII as its encoding format, although this has been expanded using Internationalized Domain Names(IDN) for Applications.

Authoritative Name Server
A domain name server configured to host the official record of the contents of a DNS zone. Each Montenegrin .me domain name must have a set of these so computers on the Internet can find out the contents of that domain. The set of authoritative name servers for any given domain must be configured as NS records in the parent domain.

Automatic Renewal
The service of automatic renewal allows the customers the convenience of automatic billing for the services ordered through the domain registrar. If the automatic renewal is selected, customer's credit card will be automatically charged for the service, which will avoid the interruption in service.

Billing Contact
Majority of the registries require 4 contacts for a successful domain registration: Registrant, Administrative, Technical and Billing. The Billing contact is responsible for the payment of the domain, and is usually assigned to the registrar managing the domain.

Caching Resolver
The combination of a recursive name server and a caching name server.

Cloaking Forwarding
Domains can be forwarded to another URL by using a forwarding service. Cloaking forwarding differs from Apache 301 forwarding by showing the content of the URL being forwarded to, however the URL bar displays the original domain name.

CNAME Record
A CNAME record is an abbreviation for Canonical Name record and is a type of resource record in the Domain Name System (DNS) used to specify that a domain name is an alias for another domain, the "canonical" domain. CNAME has a very specific syntax rule. CNAME can only be set up for the unique subdomain, meaning that it cannot be set up for any subdomain, which has already been set up for the domain. Thus CNAME is most commonly set up for WWW subdomain.

Country-code top-level domain (ccTLD)
A Class of Top Level Domains, generally assigned or reserved by a country, sovereign state, or territory. IANA is the organization, responsible for the ccTLD assignments. Since 2010 there 2 types of ccTLDs: 2 letter ASCII characters TLDs and IDN TLDs, which consist of the native language characters. Each country/territory is able to implement certain restrictions and requirements on the ccTLD assigned to them.

Cross-Registry Information Service Protocol (CRISP)
The name of the working group at the IETF that developed the Internet Registry Information Service (IRIS), a next-generation WHOIS protocol replacement.

Delegation
Any transfer of responsibility to another entity. In the domain name system, one name server can provide pointers to more useful name servers for a given request by returning NS records. On an administrative level, sub-domains are delegated to other entities. IANA also delegates IP address blocks to regional Internet registries.

Deletion
Deletion of the domain results in the domain record being removed from the registry's database. Domain deletion procedure and availability differs depending on each of the TLD's policy. Certain extensions require additional payment to delete a domain name.

DNS zone
A section of the Domain Name System name space. By default, the Root Zone contains all domain names, however in practice sections of this are delegated into smaller zones in a hierarchical fashion. For example, the .com zone would refer to the portion of the DNS delegated that ends in .com.

DNSSEC
A technology that can be added to the Domain Name System to verify the authenticity of its data. The works by adding verifiable chains of trust that can be validated to the domain name system.

Domain lock
In order to prevent unwanted changed to the domain names, customers have an ability to change the locks on their domain names. The domain lock availability depends on individual TLD, and includes clientTransferProhibited, clientUpdateProhibited, clientDeleteProhibited, clientRenewProhibited.

Domain Name
A unique identifier with a set of properties attached to it so that computers can perform conversions. A typical domain name is "icann.org". Most commonly the property attached is an IP address, like "208.77.188.103", so that computers can convert the domain name into an IP address. However the DNS is used for many other purposes. The domain name may also be a delegation, which transfers responsibility of all sub-domains within that domain to another entity. domain name label a constituent part of a domain name. The labels of domain names are connected by dots. For example, "www.iana.org" contains three labels — "www", "iana" and "org". For internationalized domain names, the labels may be referred to as A-labels and U-labels.

Domain Name Registrar
An entity offering domain name registration services, as an agent between registrants and registries. Usually multiple registrars exist who compete with each other, and are accredited. For most generic top-level domains, domain name registrars are accredited by ICANN.

Domain Name Registry
A registry tasked with managing the contents of a DNS zone, by giving registrations of sub-domains to registrants.

Domain Name Server
A general term for a computer hardware or software server, which answers requests to convert domain names into something else. These can be subdivided into authoritative name servers, which store the database for a particular DNS zone; as well as recursive name servers and caching name servers.

Domain Name System (DNS)
The global hierarchical system of domain names. A global distributed database contains the information to perform the domain name conversations, and the most central part of that database, known as the root zone is coordinated by IANA.

Dot or “."
Common way of referring to a specific top-level domain. Dot generally precedes the Top Level domain, such as dot com is written down as “.me”.

Expiration date
The expiration date determines when the domain registration period ends. In order to avoid downtime for the domain, renewal of the domain at least two weeks before expiration date is strongly encouraged. After the expiration date passes, some registries maintain the record of the domain name under the same owner, however the DNS services are put on hold.

Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP)
A protocol used for electronic communication between a registrar and a registry for provisioning domain names.

Extension
Refers to the last portion of the domain name, located after the dot. Domain extension helps determine the registry, to which domain pertains, and allows to accurately classify the domain name.

First Come, First Served (FCFS)
Multiple applications for the same domain name are not accepted. The domain will be awarded to the first registrar who submits a registration request.

FTP
File Transfer Protocol does exactly what it says. The standard network protocol allows the transfer of files from one host to another. There are many FTP clients(programs) available, which allow you to connect to your host and transfer your completed content to your hosting provider's space.

Fully-Qualified Domain Mame (FQDN)
A complete domain name including all its components, i.e. "www.icann.org" as opposed to "www".

GAC Principles
A document, formally known as the Principles for the Delegation and Administration of ccTLDs. This document was developed by the ICANN Governmental Advisory Committee and documents a set of principles agreed by governments on how ccTLDs should be delegated and run.

Domains are awarded on first come first serve basis, granted that the domains are available after the previous phases have concluded.

Generic top-level domains (gTLDs)
A class of top-level domains that are used for general purposes, where ICANN has a strong role in coordination (as opposed to country-code top-level domains, which are managed locally).

Glue Record
An explicit notation of the IP address of a name server, placed in a zone outside of the zone that would ordinarily contain that information. All name servers are in-bailiwick of the Root Zone, therefore glue records is required for all name servers listed there. Also referred to as just "glue".

Internal transfer
Internal transfer refers to a transfer of a domain name within the same registrar. This procedure may be simpler, than starting a domain transfer, which involves 2 different registrars. The internal transfer is possible, after two parties involved in the internal transfer come to an agreement about the terms of the transfer.

Internationalized domain name (IDN)
Internet domain name, which allows the use of a language-specific script or alphabet, such as Arabic, Cyrillic, and Chinese. Adoption of IDN domain names is a significant step towards including non-English speakers into the world of Internet. Internationalized domain name is stored in Domain Name System as ASCII strings, which are transcribed by the use of Punycode.

Landrush Phase
This phase allows you a greater chance to obtain a domain name prior to General Availability, typically for an increased fee. The fee generally varies depending on how early you want to register. Priority is either first-come, first-served or will go to an auction cpr144449003101 if there are multiple applicants, depending on registry rules. A common fee structure that will be in use is the Early Access Program (EAP). Further details on a specific extensions landrush phase can be found under the landrush section for that a particular domain.

Mail exchange (mx) record
MX record determines which server the mail client will be retrieving the mail from. The MX records for individual domains can be set up in the DNS records section of the client's control panel.

New Generic Top Level Domain (New gTLD)
Starting on July 15th, 2013 ICANN has started process of delegating new Generic Top Level Domains, opening up new opportunities for the internet community. New extensions include popular categories like professional domains, IDNs, general interest domains, and brand domain names.

NS record
a type of record in a DNS zone that signifies part of that zone is delegated to a different set of authoritative name servers.

Parent domain
The domain above a domain in the DNS hierarchy. For all top-level domains, the Root Zone is the parent domain. The Root Zone has no parent domain as it is as the top of the hierarchy. Opposite of sub-domain.

Parking
Many of the registrars offer a free service of domain parking. This allows the customer to quickly register a domain name, and choose the hosting solution at a later date. Very often the registrar's parking DNS servers allow DNS record modification.

Pre-Registration
Paid pre-registration allows you to purchase the domain in the General Availability phase, and the domain will be submitted as soon as the General Availability phase opens.

Primary name server

Redemption Grace Period
Redemption Grace Period(RGP) is a period after the expiration date, in which the domain still belongs to the same client, however the functionality is put on hold. The domain can usually be restored after paying for RGP fee. gTLDs often have a Renewal Period of 30 days before the Redemption Grace Period starts.

Regional Internet Registry (RIR)
A registry responsible for allocation of IP address resources within a particular region.

Registrant
See Registrant Contact

Registrant Contact

Registrar for .me
An entity that can act on requests from a registrant in making changes in a registry. Usually the registrar is the same entity that operates a registry, although for domain names this role is often split to allow for competition between multiple registrars who offer different levels of support.

Registry Montenegro .me
The authoritative record of registrations for a particular set of data. Most often used to refer to domain name registry, but all protocol parameters that IANA maintains are also registries.

Registry Operator for .me Montenegro

RZM Automation
A project to automate many aspects of the Root Zone Management function within IANA. Based on a software tool originally called "eIANA".

Secondary name server
Practically every domain extension requires minimum 2 DNS servers in order for the domain to be successfully registered. Secondary server is responsible for copying information from the primary server. The original purpose of secondary server is to take over the requests, if the primary server is down. Some of the registries no longer put an emphasis on which server is primary or secondary, but many international registries still use the old standard.

Sponsoring organization
The entity acting as the trustee of a top-level domain on behalf of its designated community.

SSL
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a cryptographivc protocol, which is designed to provide communication security over internet. The data entered on the websites, using SSL, is encrypted, thus making it less susceptible to data theft.

Subdomain
In the domain hierarchy, or structure, subdomain is a domain, which is a part of a larger domain. For example, "www.icann.org" is a sub-domain of "icann.org", and "icann.org" is a sub-domain of "org". Subdomains can generally be setup through a DNS server management utility as A records or CNAME records.

Sunrise Phase
A phase in which holders of eligible trademarks have the opportunity to apply and register domain names that correspond to their trademarks. To participate in Sunrise for new gTLDs, trademark holders must validate their trademarks with the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) first and must provide a valid Signed Mark Data (SMD) file for submission.

Technical Contact
Majority of the registries require 4 contacts for a successful domain registration: Registrant, Administrative, Technical and Billing. The Technical contact is intended to assist the Registrant(owner) contact in any queries that pertain to the technical aspects of managing the domain name.

Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH)
The central database of verified trademarks that was created by ICANN to provide brand protection to trademark holders during ICANN’s new gTLD program. Its' a centralized database of verified trademarks, that is connected to each and every new Top Level Domain (TLD) that will launch.

Top-level domain (TLD)
The highest level of subdivisions with the domain name system. These domains, such as ".me" and ".uk" are delegated from the DNS Root zone. They are generally divided into two distinct categories, generic top-level domains and country-code top-level domains.

Transfer
Most commonly, the term transfer refers to a inter-registrar transfer of registrations. The procedure of the tranfer will largely depend on the TLD, and is most commonly completed by requesting an authorization code from the current registrar and initiating the transfer at another registrar.

Trust anchor
A known good cryptographic certificate that can be used to validate a chain of trust. Trust anchor repository (TAR) Any repository of public keys that can be used as trust anchors for validating chains of trust. See Interim Trust Anchor Repository (ITAR) for one such repository for top-level domain operators using DNSSEC.

Unicode
A standard describing a repertoire of characters used to represent most of the worlds languages in written form. Unicode is the basis for internationalized domain names.

Uniform resource locator (URL)
Uniform Resource Locator(URL), commonly known as web address, is an address to a resource on the internet. The URL consists of two components: Protocol Identifier(i.e. http, https) and the Resource name(i.e. icann.org)

Unsponsored top-level domain
A sub-classification of generic top-level domain, where there is no formal community of interest. Unsponsored top-level domains(.COM, .NET, .ORG, etc.) are administered according to the policies and processes established by ICANN.

URL Forwarding
URL Forwarding or URL redirection refers to the most common type of forwarding offered by domain registrars. Forwarding occurs when all pages from one domain are redirected to another domain.

UTF-8
A standard used for transmitting Unicode characters.

Variant
In the context of internationalized domain names, an alternative domain name that can be registered, or mean the same thing, because some of its characters can be registered in multiple different ways due to the way the language works. Depending on registry policy, variants may be registered together in one block called a variant bundle. For example, "internationalise" and "internationalize" may be considered variants in English.

Variant bundle
A collection of multiple domain names that are grouped together because some of the characters are considered variants of the others.

Variant table
A type of IDN table that describes the variants for a particular language or script. For example, a variant table may map Simplified Chinese characters to Traditional Chinese characters for the purpose of constructing a variant bundle.

Web host (Hosting Provider)
Web host is a type of an Internet service, which allows users to host content and/or email services by providing hosting space. Most often the hosting providers include control panels and tools for building a website and maintaining mail records.

WHOIS database
Used to refer to parts of a registry’s database that are made public using the WHOIS protocol, or via similar mechanisms using other protocols (such as web pages, or IRIS). Most commonly used to refer to a domain name registry’s public database.

WHOIS gateway
An interface, usually a web-based form, that will perform a look-up to a WHOIS server. This allows one to find WHOIS information without needing a specialized computer program that speaks the WHOIS protocol.

WHOIS server
A system running on port number 43 that accepts queries using the WHOIS protocol.

Wire format
The format of data when it is transmitted over the Internet (i.e. "over the wire"). For example, an A-label is the wire format of an internationalized domain name; and UTF-8 is a possible wire format of Unicode.

XML
A machine-readable file format for storing structured data. Used to represent web pages (in a subset called HTML) etc. Used by IANA for storing protocol parameter registries.

Zone (DNS Records)
The zone file, also know as the DNS records is a vital component of DNS system, which contains various DNS records, which point to the location of content and email servers for each individual domain. Editing zone is made possible in the client's control panel.

Signed Mark Data (SMD)
A Signed Mark Data (SMD) is file that will allow you to register domain names during the sunrise period of new gTLD’s and request other services. It validates that you trademark has been verified within the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH).

Trademark Claims
The trademark claims period extends for 90 days after the close of the Sunrise period. During the Claims period, anyone attempting to register a domain name matching a trademark that is recorded in the Trademark Clearinghouse will receive a notification displaying the relevant mark information. If the notified party goes and ahead and registers the domain name the Trademark Clearinghouse will send a notice to those trademark holders with matching records in the Clearinghouse, informing them that someone has registered the domain name.
