.NYC registration requirements
If you are offering the .NYC domain extension, please make sure everyone interested in purchasing a .nyc domain name is aware of the requirements outlined below. We encourage all resellers to familiarize themselves with the rules and regulations and to properly inform interested customers.

  • Staten Island
  • Queens

Furthermore, in order to complete your .NYC registration, you must also specify into which of the following 2 categories the registrants falls into:

  • Category 1: Organization or other entity that has a physical street address in New York City
  • Category 2: Individual whose primary place of residence is in New York City

Additional requirements

Before purchasing a .NYC domain name, registrants need to accept the following:

  • Registrants must agree that they are in compliance with all relevant Federal, New York State and New York City laws and tax requirements
  • Registrants must remain in compliance with the applicable policies for the duration of domain’s registration
  • Registrants must agree not to license, sub-delegate or transfer .NYC domain(s) to third parties
  • No proxy registrations are permitted
