.circle is a new top-level domain name that has been created to provide a dedicated online space for the global community connected by a circle of shared values and interests.
The launch of .circle follows from the success of other new Top Level Domains such as .club, .xyz, or .berlin – all part of ICANN's continuing trend of opening up the Internet to provide more choice and flexibility for Internet users, businesses, and communities.
As the new generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) specifically designed to help people across the globe find each other online, .circle is ideal for anyone passionate about sharing experiences, interests, or beliefs with others by coming together in a circle.
What are the benefits of having a .circle domain name?
It is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to connect with each other using a community-oriented identity.
Your own .circle domain name provides an easy-to-remember web address that allows people to reach your site at any time from anywhere in the world.
The .circle domain extension can be used to create an identity that reflects your values and interests, drivers you, inspires you, or connects you with like-minded people.
By creating a web address for yourself that has the same name as your community or business, you are making it easy for others to find out more about you online. It is another way for you to connect with your customers, clients, or members.
What are the requirements for obtaining a .circle domain name?
There are no specific requirements to register a .circle name. Anyone who wants to connect with others through the .circle gTLD can apply for one, although eligibility is determined by the Registry during the registration process.
To register a .circle domain name, you must:
Be at least 18 years old
Have a valid email address. Have a physical or legal presence in the country of your residence
- Be a legal person, organization, or business with an office located within one of ICANN's approved geographic regions.
- Specify the names of at least one Administrative Contact, Technical Contact, and Billing Contact who are all adults living in the same region.
If you meet these requirements you can register your .circle domain name through our online web form.
What are the registration restrictions for a .circle domain name?
The character length of a .circle domain name is not restricted. You can request a .circle domain name that contains letters, numbers and hyphens. No other symbols are permitted.
A gTLD string cannot be longer than 63 characters.
Once you have registered your very own .circle name, it will never expire nor will you need to renew it. You can also use your .circle domain name without limit to host any lawful content on the Internet (e.g. blogs, websites, email addresses). There are no restrictions on where you can operate these domains or how many you own.
You do not need to share a registrant's personal information in order to register a .circle domain name. This means that you can keep full control over your identity online without revealing it to anyone else.
