.HR represents the official domain extension or the internet country code top level domain (ccTLD) of Croatia or Republika Hrvatska. It was introduced in 1993 and was intended for entities with connection to this country. CARNet is the authorized unit for carrying out the registry for .HR domains.
There are no registration requirements for a .com.hr extension.
Registration of a .HR domain name is subject to the following conditions:
A croatian organization or a croatian individual with an OIB number
An organization registered in European Union with a VAT number
.hr is the ccTLD for Croatia, introduced in 2002. The ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of .hr is HR. The Croatian Information Technology Foundation (Hrvatska informatička tehnologije Fond) has the responsibility of the .hr domain, including managing and enforcing policies for its registry. The registration can be done through accredited registrars or directly with the foundation.
How does the registration process work for .hr domain names?
All the domains are registered in the Croatian language. The registration is free of charge for both clients and owners, but one should select a web hosting service that supports .hr domain names to be able to use it.
What are the costs of registration?
The .hr domains have a fee of around 25€ annually, including registration and renewal. This includes the VAT but does not include any additional costs that might be charged by your hosting provider or registrar.
Who should register a .hr domain name?
From what it is known from this ccTLD's registry policy, anyone worldwide can register a .hr domain name. However, the registration of .hr domains for businesses and companies outside Croatia might be done through a Croatian registrar or web hosting provider. You can use the WHOIS search to see if the domain you want is available and who owns it at any time.
What is required for a qualified registrant?
To qualify to register a .hr domain name, an individual or company should be either Croatian by origin, present in Croatia (residence), or legally represented.

Any individual or company can register a .hr domain name. The registration is free of charge for both parties, users, and owners. If you are an individual, you should register the domain name in your name as a private person. If you are a company, you should register the domain under your company's name and with your business profile.
Is it possible to trademark or copyright my name on a .hr domain?
There are no restrictions on who can apply for the .hr domain name, so you are free to copyright or trademark your name. However, using someone else's name without the owner's permission is illegal.

What are common second level .hr domain names?
There are eight second-level domains:
.com .net .org .info .biz .me .name and gov.hr (for government entities). There's also a special agency and a university top-level domains, as well as two-letter codes representing some Croatian cities that can be used for third-level domains (.hr representing the capital Zagreb, .os for Osijek etc.).
What is the difference between .com, org, net, and info?
All these TLDs represent four categories of second-level domains that correspond to four generic top-level domains (gTLDs). The first one represents commercial entities, the second one is non-profit organizations, then comes networks (internet service providers), and lastly Internet infrastructure (ICANN) and information resources.
