Who can register .es domain names?

Anyone/any company can register .es domain names on a first-come, first-served basis, however, everyone/every company has to provide an ID number from a government issued ID (i.e. driver’s license, passport, tax ID card, company registration number, VAT number).

If the registrant of the domain name is an individual, the domain name registrant and its administrative contact must match.

Domain names can be up to 63 characters, with a minimum of three characters, and can contain letters (a to z), numbers (0 to 9), and hyphens (except at the beginning, end, or third and fourth characters in the domain name). You cannot register domain names with special characters such as & and #.

When do .es domain names renew?

Your .es domain name must renew prior to its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether you manually renew it or let us auto-renew it.

You can manually renew your .es domain name in the Domain Manager when it is within 1 year of expiration.

If you do not manually renew your domain name, we attempt auto-renewal 54 days prior to its expiration date. If our auto-renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt auto-renewal 45 days prior to expiration. If our second attempt at auto-renewal fails, we make a final attempt 35 days prior to expiration.

If our final attempt to auto-renew the domain name fails and you did not manually renew it, we will park your domain and you must redeem it. There might be a redemption fee.

Can I transfer .es domain names to my account with you?

The .es transfers are unique in three ways:

  • The domain name does not have to be unlocked to be available for transfer.
  • The Admin-C (PCA) receives an email containing approve and cancel links and has up to 10 days to approve or cancel the transfer. If the Admin-C approves the transfer within 10 days, the transfer is complete.
  • Due to registry limitations, no extra registration time is added to a .es domain name when you transfer it to us.
