Instructions for the Registration of a Domain Name
- According to the 843/2 01/03/2018 Decision of EETT, the registrant must submit a declaration for the desired domain name with one of registrars .
- Along with the domain name registration declaration, the registration fee set by the registrar must be paid.
- The registration declaration is submitted electronically by the registrar to the Registry within one working day, which in turn confirms the submission by returning the declaration's unique ID that includes the exact submission date and time.
- The registrar provides the registrant with a confirmation of that declaration with the above information.
The domain name is automatically checked by the Registry. If it is not a restricted domain name according to the
Regulation on Management and Assignment of .gr and .ελ domain names, it becomes temporarily active within a maximum
timeframe of three (3) hours and assigned after five (5) days.
The assignment declarations for domain names under the .gov.gr level or second level domain names included in EETT’s list of geographical terms are examined by EETT within twenty days from their submission to the Registry according to the registration conditions as described in the Regulation. These domain names are not temporarily activated.
Assignment declarations which are considered void according to the Article 8 of the Regulation on Management and Assignment of .gr and .ελ Domain Names are automatically rejected.
For the better organization of the .gr domain name space, the following sub-domains have been created
- com.gr: for those engaging in commercial activities
- edu.gr: for educational organizations
- net.gr: for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and network providers
- org.gr: for non-profit organizations
- gov.gr: exclusively for governmental organizations
Registering under a sub-domain is not mandatory, but is recommended for organizational reasons.
