In this case, you will choose the .IT (Nicit) option.Once you've selected the .IT properties, you'll be directed to the page where you can submit the requested information.
  • Submit out the data as requested by the form and click save properties when you're done.
  1. Choose the entity type:
  • For a natural person, choose option 1.
  • For Italian based organizations please choose the one of the applicable options from 2 to 6.

Troubleshooting:

When adding additional properties for .IT domains, the error message 'State is required for .IT domains' might return when saving the properties to the contact you're adding them to.

This error refers to the state field of the contact you're adding the properties to. If there is no state submitted in the contact, the properties for .IT can't be added as this is required by the registry. Simply add the state to the contact you're adding the properties to and you are good to go.


Register

To create a .IT domain, follow the procedure below:

!!Take note!! The IT registry has very strict nameserver requirements. Make sure that:

  1. You add the domain you're going to register to the nameservers you're using in the registration request prior to registering the domain.
  2. Check the nameserver configuration after registration through the DNS check on the Nicit website. If any errors come up, the domain will be deleted after 30 days if the errors are not corrected.
  • Now that the domain is added to the nameservers you're going to create or search for a contact handle already created with valid data to use for the create. For a detailed description of how to create a contact handle, check the contacts knowledgebase article.
  • Add additional properties for .IT (Nicit) to the Registrant contact.
  • Use the availability checker to determine if the domain is available. If the domain is available, select it to register using the green 'Select to register button' and confirm with the 'Register selected domains' button.
  • Submit the details you wish to use for registration. For in-depth support on the registration process, check the register domain(s) knowledgebase article.
