Registration Eligibility

Eligibility to register a .praxi domain name is limited to PRAXI S.p.A..

To assist in ensuring compliance with the .praxi TLD Policy, “privacy” or “proxy” registrations may not be permitted in the .praxi Top Level Domain.

Domain Name Registration Rules

Domain name registrations in the .praxi Top Level Domain follow a four step process managed by PRAXI S.p.A.: (i) Eligibility Confirmation; (ii) Naming Convention Check; (iii) Acceptable Use Review; (iv) Registration.

.praxi domain name registrations are available to eligible registrants for annual terms between one (1) and ten (10) years.

In the event Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) registrations are made available in the .praxi Top Level Domain, they will be subject to the .praxi IDN registration pairing rules as and when they are developed.

  1. Eligibility Confirmation
    Only PRAXI S.p.A. is eligible to register a .praxi domain name.
    Prior to any .praxi domain name registration or renewal, and at any time during the registration life cycle, domain name registrations will be verified by PRAXI S.p.A. for compliance with the .praxi TLD Registration Policy including as to eligibility.
  2. Naming Convention Check
    .praxi domain names must meet the following technical conditions:
    1. must be at least 1 character and no more than 63 characters long
    2. must contain only letters (a-z), numbers (0-9) and hyphens or a combination of these
    3. must start and end with an alphanumeric character, not a hyphen
    4. must not be a Reserved Name
    5. domain names at the second level must not contain a hyphen at the 3rd and 4th positions (tagged domains) unless corresponding to a valid Internationalized Domain Name in ASCII encoding (for example “xn--ndk061n”).
  3. Acceptable Use Review
    By asking PRAXI S.p.A. to register or renew a .praxi domain name registration, you warrant and represent that your .praxi domain name registration does and will at all times comply with the .praxi TLD Registration Policy and .praxi TLD T&Cs.

    Registration or renewal of a .praxi domain name is subject to PRAXI S.p.A.’s satisfaction that the Acceptable Use standards set out in the .praxi TLD T&Cs are met prior to, and at all times during a .praxi domain name registration.

    As a Registrant of a .praxi domain name, you warrant and represent that where your .praxi registration is a letter/letter two-character ASCII label then you will take steps to ensure against misrepresenting or falsely implying that you or your business is affiliated with the corresponding government or country-code manager if such affiliation, sponsorship or endorsement does not exist.
  4. Registration
    Provided that the .praxi eligibility confirmation, naming convention check, and acceptable use review are satisfied, PRAXI S.p.A. will provide a secure instruction to the Registrar to proceed with the registration or renewal of your .praxi domain name.

    If at any point prior to the registration expiration date you no longer wish to maintain your .praxi domain name registration, you may submit a written request by email to the Registrar requesting cancellation of your registration. Please note that if you cancel your .praxi domain name registration, PRAXI S.p.A. is under no obligation to make that domain name available for your future registration.

    At the conclusion of the registration period for your .praxi domain name, unless you have instructed the Registrar otherwise prior to the expiration of your .praxi domain name registration, the Registrar will renew your .praxi domain name registration on the basis of an agreed standing renewal order.
