.CY refers to the official domain extension or the internet country code top level domain (ccTLD) of Cyprus. It was introduced in 1994 and was intended for entities that have affiliations with Cyprus. The University of Cyprus is the authorized body for carrying out its registry. Registration is restricted to legal residents and companies operating in the Cyprian territory.
Aside from being used as Cyprus’ two-letter country code, CY is also used to abbreviate other popular words. CY also stands for: city or country (abbreviation), calendar year (date & time), cyberspace (internet), current yield (business) and contract year (government).
In order to register a .CY domain name, the owner must provide the ID Number, and date of birth (for individual) or the company number (for organization).
The registration delay can vary according to paperwork processing.
The registry may request documentation during the registration process.
Registration of a .CY domain name works on a first come, first served basis.
You can also register one of the .CY second level extensions: .AC.CY, .NAME.CY, PRESS.CY, PRO.CY, NET.CY, BIZ.CY, LTD.CY, ORG.CY, TM.CY.
