Rules and particularities of .music domain names
Terms and conditions
Assigning: Allocation conditions will depend on the registration period.
A non-enumerated list of documents may be requested to provide and establish eligibility. Failure to provide requested documentation may be material and result in the denial, refusal or deletion of the domain name without a refund.
Both verification and music profile information is required to be eligible for a .MUSIC domain name:
• Registrant Identity Verification. After registration of a domain name, registrants must complete an identity verification through the Registry’s Identity Verification Solution Provider (IVSP).
• Music Profile and Nexus Verification. To complete the identification process, music profile information and data will be required at the IVSP. This information is used to determine a Music Score and the registrant’s Nexus to the .MUSIC domain name string.
• Music Score (Name Selection Policy, section 4.0). Members of the music community can be recognized and identified by works, contractual engagements, social connections and profile. The Registry will generate a metric, called Music Score, from these attributes analyzed through its IVSP. The Music Score will be used as a determinant and measure of the registrant’s connection and history in the music community.
• Registrant Nexus Score (Name Selection Policy, section 5.0). The Registry will try to quantify and determine a nexus score between the registrant and the .MUSIC domain name registered, through its IVSP. This internal Registrant Nexus will be used as a determinant for the suitability and legitimacy of a registrant for a specific .MUSIC domain string. For the Community Phase, the Registrant Nexus Score will be used as a key determinant for awarding a specific .MUSIC domain name with or without contention. During the General Availability, the Registrant Nexus Score will be used to isolate and indicate potential fraudulent, or inappropriate registrations.
You must remain eligible throughout the registration of Your domain. The .MUSIC Registry with its verification partners will review the nexus qualifications regularly every year the domain name is registered.
