TT Domain Name Criteria and the TTNIC Policies
An application for Domain Name registration must meet the following criteria and comply with the following directives:
A Domain Name that is used as a URL shortener must include filters to
block shortcuts to inappropriate content. Any violation of this rule
will result in the immediate cancellation of the concerned Domain
Applicants or Registrants with web sites that are determined in the
sole opinion of the Registry to be risky (i.e., contain browser
exploits, phishing, excessive popups, trojans, sypware etc.), will
be given 24 hours’ notice to remove the offending code, failing
which their Domain Name will be suspended until such remedial action
is taken by the Applicant or Registrant. A second violation could
lead to the permanent deletion of the Domain Names.

A registered Domain Name is to be used solely by the
Registrant. Sub-domains of such a Domain Name are not to be provided
to third parties whether for free or for a fee.

shall not have more than sixty-three (63) characters. Domain Names
cannot begin with a hyphen.

that is contrary to public policy and the Registry expressly reserves
the right to reject Domain Names applications that are deemed to be
contrary to public policy or are otherwise objectionable.
The Registry reserves the right to remove or not renew Domain Names
that provide content that is contrary to public policy without notice
to the Registrant.
Subdomains within edu.tt are restricted to
educational institutions within Trinidad and Tobago.
Applications for subdomains within gov.tt must be made directly with
the Government of Trinidad and Tobago through the National Information
and Communication Technology Company Limited (branded iGovTT).
Applicants and Registrants must comply with the Terms and
Conditions, including the provisions relating to the payment of fees.
This policy covers how the Registry uses the personal information of a
Registrant. The Registry takes privacy considerations seriously and
will take all reasonable measures to protect the personal information
of an Applicant or Registrant. Any personal information received or
maintained by the Registry will be used to process the application and
for the operation of the Registry including, but not limited to the
internal use of the Registry, communication with the Registrant;
provided however, that the Registry will make publicly available, or
directly available to third parties, the name of the Registrant and
the nameservers in relation to a Domain Name for the purposes of
searches or inspection or for any purpose as required or permitted by
applicable laws. Except as stated herein, the Registry will not sell
or redistribute an Applicant’s or Registrant’s information to anyone.
The policy of the Registry is not to offer refunds to Registrants or
Applicants. This is due to costs, mostly administrative and Registry
costs, incurred immediately upon processing the application for
registration of the Domain Name. This policy is also to prevent
Applicants from "domain tasting" and is a standard policy for ccTLD
