A .or domain name is a Romanian Domain Name. It's the Country Code Top Level domain for Romania, just like .com or .uk is.
Anyone who has either an association with Romania or who has some business affiliation in this country can register and use a .or address. However, there are certain restrictions on who can register a .ro domain name.
A case in point is the restriction on registering .ro domain names for pornographic sites. So, if you are in Romania or have any business connection with this country, then you can register a .or address.
When you are choosing a domain for your website, it's important that the domain is relevant and at the same time easy to remember by people who might want to visit it.
So think carefully about what your business or niche will be so as to choose
There are several authorities that have the right to regulate and monitor the use of a .or address in Romania: The National Agency for Administration of Domain Names, which is part of ANCOM, as well as Registrul National al Informatiei, a department of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology.
There are several common suffixes that you can use with your domain so as to make it easy to remember:
- com.or – commercial organizations or companies registered in Romania
- edu.or – educational institutions registered in the country
- gov.or – government organizations or offices registered in Romania
-net.or - Internet service providers registered in Romania
-org.or - organizations or associations registered in Romania
-info.or – general information sites about Romania
-arts.ro – arts and culture related sites
-rec.ro – has to do with recreation, sports and leisure
-firm.ro - business information sites
Yes, it's possible to do so. You can use a proxy or Romanian office address as your contact details when registering for a .or domain name.
However, there are specific restrictions on using this option like the ban on pornographic websites.
It is also possible to use a .ro domain name with no local presence in any other country, but you need to fill out the Whois Privacy Protection Form.
This form is available for download on the Registry of .ro domain names website.
When registering for a .or domain name, the following documentation is required:
·Proof of Romanian citizenship or residence in Romania
·A copy of your passport or Identity card and Residency permit if based abroad Details on who will manage the administrative functions related to your .or domain name – this can be a third party or an individual
That depends on the type of registration you choose and how long it is valid for. You will also need to pay extra charges if you want any additional services such as email forwarding, hosting, etc.
The price of a .or domain name is between €12 and €25 per year.
