TT Domain Name Policies

  1. Domains that are used as URL shorteners must include filters to block shortcuts to inappropriate content. Any violation of this policy will result in the immediate removal of the concerned domain.
  2. Registrants with web sites that are discovered to be risky (i.e., contain browser exploits, phishing, excessive popups, trojans, sypware etc.), either directly by the TTNIC or through complaints from Internet users, will be given 24 hours to remove the offending code before their domain is taken out of service. A second violation could lead to the permanent deletion of the domain.
  3. A registered domain is to be used solely by the Registrant. Sub-domains of such a domain are not to be provided to third parties whether for free or for a fee.
  4. Registrations are processed on a first come first served basis but we abide by International copyright rules.
  5. We do not support Registrars and so all registrations must be made through the TTNIC.
  6. Registrants are not restricted to have a local presence but those that do (i.e., have a local addresss) are provided discounted fees.
  7. All changes to registration details are free but we do not permit changes in the Registrant's name (except if a company has a name change)
  8. Domain names must include only letters, numbers, or hyphens ("-") and cannot have more than 63 characters. They cannot begin with a hyphen.
  9. Subdomains within edu.tt are restricted to educational institutions within Trinidad and Tobago.
  10. Applications for subdomains within gov.tt must be made directly with the Government of Trinidad and Tobago and hence must follow their policies.
  11. We reserve the right to remove domains that provide objectionable content and not to renew domains on expiration.
  12. We reserve the right to reject domain names that are deemed to be objectionable.
  13. Registrants must pay within 30 days of registration (or within 30 days of the expiration date in the case of renewals) else the domain may be deleted.
  14. The billing terms are provided on the invoice and pricing information is available at www.nic.tt.
  15. For each registered domain, we make available (on our web site) the name of the Registrant, the address of the Registrant, the email addresses of Administrative, Billing and Technical Contacts, the corresponding nameserver information and the expiration date of the domain.

Privacy Policy

This policy covers how we use your personal information. We take your privacy seriously and will take all measures to protect your personal information. Any personal information received will only be used to fill your order. We will not sell or redistribute your information to anyone.

Refund Policy

Our policy is not to offer refunds. This is due to costs, mostly administrative and Registry costs, incurred immediately upon registration of the domain name. This policy is also to prevent applicants from "domain tasting" and is a standard policy for ccTLD Registries.
