Terms and Conditions

Assigning: .REIT domains are reserved to legal entities that meet the definition of a real estate investment trust (REIT) under applicable national law. Please read carefully the registration requirements on the following website: Registry Policies

IDN (accented domain names): no
Registration period: 1 to 10 years during general availability, 1 year during Sunrise period

Registration Applicants may register any number of domain names that meet the requirements of the Registry’s Second-Level Domain Name Policy, provided
(i) the Registrant for all domain names must be the actual REIT entity (i.e., the Qualifying REIT) and may not be REIT sponsors, holding companies, or other affiliated entities (although such entities may facilitate the registration as long as the Qualifying REIT is the Registrant);
(ii) domain names must correspond to the Qualifying REIT in accordance with the Second-Level Domain Name Policy specifications, and may not correspond to the name of REIT sponsors, holding companies, or other affiliated entities; and
(iii) all domain names must be used.
The domain name(s) chosen must either correspond to the REIT’s legal trade name(s) or be the name by which the REIT is commonly known, including acronyms, registered and common law trademarks, or exchange ticker symbols:
– Certain commonly used legal suffix terms or abbreviations that are in the REIT’s legal trade names may be excluded or abbreviated provided that the requested domain name is still sufficiently unique as to clearly identify the domain name to the specific REIT.
– Commonly known names by which the REIT is identified must be sufficiently unique as to clearly identify the domain name to the specific REIT.
– Names which may be confusing to the public because they correspond too closely to the name of a REIT’s sponsor, holding companies, or other affiliated entities are not eligible.
Registration of domain names using generic or descriptive terms relating to REITs is prohibited, except to the extent the domain name qualifies the eligibility policy requirements.
Renewal: domains are deactivated upon expiration. It is possible to renew up to 45 days following the expiration date
Disputes: URS and UDRPCEDRP
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.

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
