.pa domain name

A .pa domain name is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Panama. It is a popular option for individuals and businesses in Panama, which is the reason behind it being one of the first non-Latin domain names to be created. Though it was originally called by some sources as .com.pa, the full name registered by the local government of Panama is ".pa."

It was introduced on January 1, 1996 by IANA along with three other Latin American TLDs.

Who can use a .pa domain name?

There are no restrictions on who can register under the .pa ccTLD, and any individual or business located in or doing business in Panama could choose to register under this TLD.

What is a .pa domain name?

The .pa TLD falls under the open registration policy of IANA, which means that anyone with an email address can register for one; however, registrants need to provide proof of their identity and location in Panama. It also follows after the rules of ICANN, or Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which makes it necessary for registrants to fulfill all the requirements set by IANA before they are allowed to register for a domain name.

The .pa ccTLD falls under the responsibility of NIC-Panama (acronym for "Nombre Comercial de Panama S.A"), which is a privately owned company that manages and regulates domain names for Panama. It also resolves all issues brought up by registrants in relation to the .pa TLD.

Tips to choose ideal .pa Domain Name:

It is important for domain name registrants to understand that there are no special rules that apply when choosing their second-level domains. However, they should still be mindful of possible conflicts with names already in use in Panama.

NIC-Panama has established some basic tips in choosing your ideal .pa domain name, such as avoiding generic words like "flowers" or "money," using hypenp (-), avoiding numbers and only using the English alphabet.

Can you register .pa Domain Without Local Presence?

Domains without local presence are not allowed to be registered on the .pa TLD, unless it is a non-commercial website. However, this kind of website must still provide some sort of identification. If there is no local presence, a second-level domain is allowed, but a third-level subdomain is not.

International companies need to provide certification of incorporation papers issued by NIC-Panama. Those who want to use their website solely for non-commercial purposes have to provide a simple letter with their contact details, along with an email address and telephone number where they can be contacted.

How much does .pa Domain Name cost?

The .pa domain, like other TLDs in the world, comes with a registration fee of $190 USD for two years. The price goes down to $101 USD when you register it for five years. However, this price may change depending on your Registrar.
