Terms and Conditions

Assigning: .DEV domain names are open to everyone.
.DEV is a security-focused space, meaning that HTTPS is required for all websites. The entire .DEV namespace has been added to the HSTS Preload list. To work properly in browsers, you will need to obtain a SSL certificate and configure the HTTPS serving.
Our web forwarding service is currently not available for .DEV domain names as it does not include https forwarding as required by the registry for .DEV domains. Note that you can still manage the domain's DNS records as usual to point the domain to your servers however.
Syntax: from 1 to 63 alphanumeric characters or a hyphen (excluding in the first and last place and third and fourth place)

Registration period: 1 to 10 years during general availability, 1 year during Sunrise and Early Access periods
Second-level extensions: no


Renewal: domains are deactivated upon expiration. It is possible to renew up to 45 days following the expiration date
Disputes:URS and UDRP
Transfer (change of Registrar): the process is started on the new registrar's interface with an auth code. Ensure that your domain does not have a TransferProhibited status, is older than 60 days and has not been transferred in the last 60 days. The effective transfer depends on your validation (by email) and renews the domain name for one year
Change of Ownership: available on our interface, the current procedure consists in email confirmation by both former and new domain name owner. The expiration date is unchanged
Deletion process: quarantine of 30 days, see this table
