ABOUT US

Internet Technologies Center (ITC) is an operator of the Armenian Domain Names Registry and serves two Armenian top level domains (TLD) AM and ՀԱՅ.

The main functions of ITC are to provide domain name registration service, manage the domain name database and operate the Domain Name System (DNS) servers for AM and ՀԱՅ TLDs.

ITC performs domain registration functions through the institute of Registrars.

AMNIC (Armenia Network Information Center) is a structural subdivision of the ITC, responsible for DNS and K-root servers, external relations of ITC (cooperation with IANA, RIPE NCC and CENTR) and the development of the domain names registration system.

Questions

Who can apply for an .am and/or .հայ domain name?

Anyone can apply for an .am and/or .հայ domain name. It also does not matter how much domain names have already been registered by applicant, if any.
In short, if you need to register an .am and/or .հայ domain name, just apply for it!

Is there any technical restriction(s) for chosen domain name?

Yes, there are some restrictions:
– label (a part separated by dots) length of the domain name cannot exceed 63 symbols.Only Latin characters, digits and the dash are allowed in AM TLD:
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9  and only Armenian Unicode characters (with exception of ‘և’), Latin digits and the dash in ՀԱՅ TLD:
ա բ գ դ ե զ է ը թ ժ ի լ խ ծ կ հ ձ ղ ճ մ յ ն շ ո չ պ ջ ռ ս վ տ ր ց ւ փ ք օ ֆ 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9  a domain name cannot start with dash or contain two sequential dashes.

What is a nameserver?

A name server is a server that runs appropriate software and hosts the domain name zone of a domain name it is authoritative for.

What is a domain name?

A domain name usually consists of two or more parts (technically labels), separated by dots. The rightmost label conveys the TLD (top-level domain). Each next label to the left specifies a subdivision or subdomain of the domain above it. Note that “subdomain” expresses relative dependence and not the absolute one. In theory, this subdivision can go down to 127 levels deep, and each label can contain up to 63 characters, as long as the whole domain name does not exceed a total length of 255 characters. But in practice some domain registries have shorter limits than that.
Label limits for IDN domain names should be applied to A-labels (translation to ASCII) instead of U-labels (non-ASCII Unicode representation). A name could be translated using IDN Conversion Tool for example.
The DNS consists of a hierarchical set of DNS servers. Each domain or subdomain has one or more authoritative DNS servers that publish information about that domain and the name servers of any domains “beneath” it. The hierarchy of authoritative DNS servers matches the hierarchy of domains. At the top of the hierarchy stand the root servers: the servers to query when looking up (resolving) a TLD (top-level domain name).

What is a TLD?

A domain name usually consists of two or more parts (technically – labels), separated by dot(s). For example “amnic.net”. The rightmost label conveys the TLD (top level domain). Web site “www.amnic.net” has the TLD “net”.
TLD could also be in non-ASCII Unicode characters, so called IDN (Internationalized Domain Name), for example “հայ”.

What is a registrant?

A registrant is a person or a legal entity registering a domain name in AM and/or ՀԱՅ TLD.

AM NIC Registrars

Every web site or web project needs a domain. Domain is the “address” of the web site, which gives the opportunity to find and visit any sites, blogs, online shops and other web resources. Domain consists of a domain name and a domain zone. Usually we choose a name, which may contain from 2 to 63 characters consisting of letters, numbers and a hyphen: “-“. There are international domain zones such as .com, .net, .biz, .info, .org, and so on. Each country has its appropriate domain zone, for example, .am domain zone is Armenian.
