What is the .virgin domain name?

The .virgin domain name is a top-level domain (gTLD) used by Virgin Group Ltd. to provide clear and powerful online identities for its projects, businesses, and brands.

It can also be used by individuals to identify themselves with Virgin's values and identities such as the 'Island Life' of Necker Island or other Virgin locations around the world.

Who can apply for a .virgin domain?

Anyone can register a .virgin web address so long as it isn't offensive, doesn't infringe on third-party rights, isn't a generic term, and doesn't violate our policies.

Each registration must be associated with an active website to pass the Registrant Eligibility Verification process.

Who manages .virgin domains?

Virgin will operate as a registry under its company name, Virgin Digital Limited. This company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Virgin Group Ltd.

The .virgin domain name will be open to registrations from any international organization or individual, but the Registrant Eligibility Verification process (which screens for offensive and inappropriate content) applies equally to all users regardless of their country of residence.

The day-to-day operational management of the .virgin TLD will be done by Neustar Inc, an American corporation that specializes in providing real-time information to help guide critical decision-making around domain names.

Can I use a .virgin domain as my main website address?

.virgin domains can be used for whatever you like, including as the main website address for your personal or business use.

The purpose of the TLD is to uniquely identify projects, businesses, and brands. If you're planning on using it as your primary website, we recommend that your site offers information about the brand or project the name represents.

It can also be used for an online directory, like the one on Necker Island.

Individuals are welcome to use .virgin domain names as they wish, provided it isn't offensive and doesn't infringe on third-party rights.

You will still need to go through the standard registration process with us to get your chosen name.

What do I have to provide to register a .virgin domain?

You'll need to provide your contact details, including your name, physical address, email address, and telephone number.

You will also be asked about the project or brand you are representing so that you can prove your right to use the chosen name.

Is there any difference between registering a .virgin web address and an existing .com, .co.uk, or other TLD?

.virgin domains are open to any individual, business, brand, or project that can meet our criteria and provide the necessary contact information.

There is no difference between registering a .virgin name and an existing TLD. You will still need to go through the standard registration process with us to get your chosen name.

Virgin Domains, the registry operator for .virgin, has plans to make things easier for registrants once they have registered their name with us - including reducing costs and offering quick access to domain management tools.

For those who wish to manage their names through their registrars as normal, that option remains available as before.
