- contain IDN supported characters.

- start and end with an alphanumeric character, not a dash.

- do not contain a dash on the 3rd and 4th position (tagged domains).



It is possible to register premium domain names. These domain names consist of one, two or three characters. Notice that these premium domain names are (much) more expensive as normal (four till sixty three character long) domain names. For example: a three character domain is about 500 dollar/year, a two character domain is about 1000 dollar/year and a single character domain costs about 50000 dollar/year. If you decide that you want to register a premium domain, you should contact Networking4all.

For a ".ws" domain it's necessary to have two configured name servers. Notice: if you have registered your ".ws" domain name and have two configured name servers, it might happen that your website is not available for the first 72 hours since it can take from 24 to 72 hours for the DNS to fully propagate throughout the Internet zone files.



The registrant certifies that he or she has legal right to the registered domain name and that the use of the domain name does not violate any copyrights, trademarks or service marks.



The domain name may not:

- be against the laws of the United States or foreign territories in which you conduct business.

- violate the right of third parties.

- encourage unlawful behaviour by others (incitement to terrorism, to commit crimes etc.)

- be radically, obscene, vulgar, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.

- be used in order to distribute SPAM.



Transfer possible Yes
Authcode (Transfer) Authcode required
Transfer fee € 39.00
Transfer time 5 days

If you want to move your .".ws" domain to Networking4all, you should contact your current registrar and request to send the Domain Authorization Code (also referred to as a authcode, Authinfo code or transfer code). This code is assigned by the registrar. Authorization Codes are the password for the domain and serve as an additional safety measure. The verification codes ensure that only the domain name owner can relocate the domain. Once the current registar has approved the transfer or doesn't object within five days, the domain name is transferred to Networking4all.



Please note that .WS transfers are not offered by all registrars although the registry offers this possibility. A ".ws" domain can only be transfered if all involved registrars offer ".ws" transfers. Please contact the current registrar of the ".ws" domain if transfers are supported before requesting a domain.



It's also possible to transfer a ".ws" domain name to another owner. If you decide to do so, please contact Networking4all. However, keep in mind that any current registration period already paid for is automatically forfeited by the registry. The new owner will need to complete payment for a new registration period within 10 days of the ownership transfer or the domain will be released back into the pool.
