.PT domain policies

.PT is the internet country code top-level domain for Portugal and is managed by Associação DNS.PT.

Registration details

For registrations to be valid, individuals must submit an ID card number and a tax number. Organizations must submit a business registration number.

Registrant verification

The .PT registry has notified all registrants to validate their contact data as part of their quality control. They reserve the right to validate all contact information associated with a domain. Failure to respond within eight days of the registry’s first notification email may result in the registry deleting the domain. The domain contacts can validate by replying directly to the notification email. Please notify your customers immediately about this validation process.

The following contact data needs to be verified as part of the validation process:

  • VAT or Tax ID
  • The company or person that matches the VAT or tax ID
  • Contact information

If your email address is listed as a contact, you are responsible for proofing the data and responding to the registry. If OpenSRS has contacted you regarding contact validation, you must contact the registrant immediately.

We want to point out that the .PT registry has already started this process without providing advance notice to registrars or registrants. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and confirm that we provided appropriate feedback to the .PT registry.

Renewals

Due to changes in the back end, if auto-renewal is turned off 30 days before the expiry date, the domain will be deleted 30 days before the expiry date. Due to this TLD not having a grace period, it will have to be redeemed to recover the domain.
