The Cypriot Domain Registry has recently announced that domain name registrations under the first level .CY domain extension are now open and available for everyone.
In order to register a .CY domain name with Intername, the Applicant must provide the ID Number, and date of birth (for individuals) or the company number (for organizations).
The registration usually takes 3 weeks, but delay can vary according to paperwork processing.
The registry may request documentation during the registration process.
Applied name must not violate any 3rd party trademarks and should not be generic.
.CY names are registered in calendar year
If your domain name is registered between January 1 and March 31, it will be valid until December 31 of the current year.
If your domain name is registered between April 1 and December 31, it will be valid until December 31 of the next year.
.CY domain transfers are blocked
Currently it is impossible to initiate the transfer of a domain name in .CY
Registration of a .CY domain name works on a first come, first served basis.
