Video. Audio. Steaming. If your personal, professional, or business website includes a play button, it’s made for a .tv domain extension.
The .tv extension is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Tuvalu. For obvious reasons, it’s a hot commodity. And fortunately, anyone anywhere can register a .tv domain.
With a .tv you’re choosing more than a URL. You’re choosing to tell people what kind of content is on your site even before they visit. You’re choosing to say you’re offering a more engaging online experience. And you’re choosing to stand out from the ever-increasing crowd of everyday no-video-here web addresses.
Anyone can register .tv domains on a first-come, first-served basis.
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 or end of the domain name). You cannot register domain names with special characters such as & and #.
dotTV is the registry for .tv domains.
The minimum registration length for .tv domains is 1 year and they may be registered for a maximum of 10 years.
Auto-renewal of your .tv domain name is attempted on the its expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal 10 days later. If the second renewal attempt fails, we try again 5 days after that.
If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 17th dayafter the expiration date, it must be redeemed. There might be a fee for the redemption.
For example: Your .tv domain name expires on October 1. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually until October 18. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on October 1, October 11, and October 16.
Both privacy and domain name protection services are available for .tv domains.
Yes. You can make standard registrant and other contact name changes on your .tv domains.
